A high flying adventure over Garibaldi Provincial Park in Whistler, BC! 

You’ll hop aboard your plane, take off from the Squamish Airport and fly deep into Garibaldi Provincial Park, to the boundary layer between ancient glacial flows and volcanism. It’s here where mountains were forged, amongst ice and fire, as far back as 230 million years ago.

Admire spectacular landscapes of winding rivers, shimmering lakes and dense forests as your pilot explains the region’s dramatic glacial geology.

Mount Garibaldi is the striking diamond shaped peak visible from almost anywhere in Squamish. But, perhaps, the most famous mountain of all in this region is Black Tusk, a black pyroclastic cinder cone of fossilized magma steeped in First Nation’s history and folklore. Sphinx Glacier, The Barrier, Tabletop, and Opal Cone are more of the highlights on this tour of glaciers, extinct volcanoes, and unique geological formations you won’t find in any other part of the world.

Once you’re in the air you’ll see why visitors have described this sightseeing flight experience as nothing less than extraordinary.  Don’t forget your camera!
