Experience the glacier lover’s dream flight

Witness the stark beauty and dimension of an unreachable land

Emerge from the heart of the coast mountains of BC forever changed

Let your expert pilot-guide show you these glaciers in a way that will leave you spellbound.

The Prehistoric Glacier Express transports you back 10,000 years, in any season and at any time of day. This experience will show you the heart of the coast mountains. A force of nature that is responsible for carving and sculpting valleys in a in a way that no other element of nature could. You won’t be able to hold your camera up.

There are glaciers and then there are GLACIERS. In the Squamish watershed – some 2,600 square kilometers in size – there are glaciers the size of small towns parked one after the other on sheer granite descents, flowing slowly down 8,000ft knife-edged ridge lines carved by their preceding ancient ice flows.
Good to know: Flying in our aircraft is just like driving in a car, with ventilation and heating control. Simply dress for the season and sunglasses are recommended. All ages can participate in a flight. Children up to 2 years old are considered infants, and must sit on the lap of a responsible guardian. Children older than 2 must have their own seat in the aircraft.
