    What to Expect
    Take a break from all of Whistler's grounded activities, like skiing and mountain biking, and get airborne for breathtaking views of Whistler's surrounding areas! Arrive at Green Lake, just a 5-min drive from downtown Whistler, and board your floatplane for a scenic flightseeing experience.

    British Columbia is world-renowned for its awe-inspiring natural beauty, and seeing the region from high above is an ideal way to take in all of the incredible sights. About 15,000 years ago, glaciers comprised this entire area, piled so deeply that only the tops of the highest mountain peaks saw the sun. These glaciers carved the spectacular scenery that exists today.

    During your flightseeing tour, sit back in your comfortable floatplane and marvel at the incredible landscapes as you fly above massive glaciers, rugged mountain peaks, volcanic formations and mile-high Garibaldi Lake. Don't forget your camera!

    I went on the Spectacular Glacier Tour with Whistler Air (Harbour Air) and it was such an amazing experience! We were able to park for free at the Nicklaus North Golf Club and it was an easy check in process with Naomi at the front desk. We were able to wait on the dock where

    Great experience for those on right side of plane (I was). We thought the pilot would pass the same things on the way back for those on the left side, but didn't happen. Take off and landing very smooth - much more so than I had anticipated. Definitely worth the trip.

    Superb experience. We went at 5.30 and the air was still so our pilot Rick took us really close to the peaks glaciers and ice fields. Fantastic trip. Well worth the money we took off from the lake by the golf club and had a 40 min flight. Lovely setting. Whistler air transported

    A friend and I did the Valley tour with Darren as our pilot a few days ago. The views were amazing, the ride was smooth and he gave us a bit of a bonus by giving us some extra time in the air. The view of Garibaldi Lake and Whistler were incredible! I would definitely recommend
