Our most popular tour with people who want Whistler’s longest and best backcountry aerial experience
The Sea To Sky’s mountainous region was formed during the last ice age. A time when active volcanoes erupted into the vast icefields that once dominated the landscape.
On the Whistler Backcountry Air Safari we will fly deep into Garibaldi Provincial Park, to the boundary layer between ancient glacial flows and volcanism. It’s here where mountains were forged, among fire and ice, as far back as 230 million years ago.
This is our most popular experience and our guest’s top choice for the best Whistler backcountry attractions. Photographers, hikers, walkers, and geologists will be equally amazed as we fly shoulder to shoulder with iconic landmarks including Garibaldi Lake and Black Tusk. Do not forget your camera!
The Barrier, Sphinx glacier, Tabletop, and Opal Cone are more of the highlights on this tour of glaciers, extinct volcanoes, and unique geological formations you will not find in any other part of the world.
Once you’re in the air you’ll see why our guests have described this experience as nothing less than extraordinary.
This flight can be booked in both summer & winter
Keep It Private
All of our planes have 3 passenger seats, if you’d like to have the plane to yourself you can “Make It Private” by purchasing the remaining 3rd seat for a reduced rate. This is one of our most popular add-ons with our guests. It’s also perfect if you’re buying the Whistler Backcountry Air Safari gift card for a birthday or wedding gift.
