Get a bird's eye of view of British Columbia’s mountains on this spectacular scenic flight.

Soaring through the skies over British Columbia’s backcountry is about as exciting an experience as you can possibly imagine. The views are amazing and the experience intimate. The advantage to flying in the four-seater floatplane is that everyone gets a window seat and you get an almost 360° view. During the flight you can chat with your pilot via your personal two-way headset or simply sit back and enjoy the view.

After flying through the Coast Mountains, you’ll land on the dazzling, emerald green waters of Phantom Lake, high in the peaks of the mountains. The only way to access Phantom Lake is by floatplane. Say goodbye to the crowed beaches, busy trails, and say hello to your own private floatplane tour with a personal pilot.

Your pilot will taxi you over to the scenic, untouched alpine beach where you can enjoy swimming, taking photos or just relax in the tranquility of this remote surrounding. A popular activity is to bring your own picnic for a tasty treat or a memorable alpine lunch.

About Phantom Lake: At one end, water feeds into the lake from the nearby ancient glaciers of Mt Tzoonie Mountain and Mt. Jimmy Jimmy, while at the other end it escapes via a towering cascading waterfall.
