It’s hard to say what the perfect gift for Squamish adventurers is, but we can say one thing for certain, it involves experiencing the extraordinary Coast Mountains in a special way. We might be biased, but flying over and accessing remote areas by plane or seaplane is a unique way to gain a new perspective of these beautiful mountains and waterways we call home. Whether your adventurer wants to scope out lines for backcountry skiing, go trout fishing, or take a cold-dip in a pristine, sub-alpine lake, we have guided scenic flights that will create extraordinary memories. Our Gift Cards for Guided Scenic Flights don’t have an expiration date, so here’s some inspiration to surprise your loved one with a unique, Squamish gift.
If your loved one is keen on ski touring or split boarding, give them the gift of having a bird’s eye view of lines & mountains they’ve always wanted to see. While Fatmap can give you a pretty incredible 3-D view of touring routes & the mountains, actually flying over the backcountry will give them a view & experience like no other. They can of course bring binoculars to get close-up views of the terrain that inspires them, but they’ll be blown away by how close we’re able to fly to the monoliths & peaks that inspire us to go further & deeper into the epic Coast Mountains. We highly recommend the Whistler Backcountry Air Safari for all the keeners in your life, or let them design their own route on the Coast Mountain Epic.
For the Squamish adventurer in your life who loves to fly fish, we have an experience of epic proportions. You can purchase a gift card for our Squamish Fly Fishing by Seaplane and give your loved one an experience to look forward to this summer. For this guided scenic flight, we partner with Trout Country Fishing Guides to provide an epic, 8-hour experience fishing on Phantom Lake. In the morning, you’ll charter a private seaplane with your pilot & guide, and land on a fly-in-only lake in the sub-alpine of Squamish. Your Squamish adventurer will then spend the day angling with the guide for eager rainbow trout. Sound like a dream gift for your loved one? You can learn more about this unbelievable, bucket list experience here.
If your loved one prefers to experience Squamish via water, we have some incredible guided scenic flights for them! Year-round, they can experience the epic coast mountains and land on the Howe Sound on our Howe Sound Fjord & Coast by Seaplane guided scenic flight. This is ideal for the Squamish adventurer who wants to gain the perspective of flight and the incredible coastline and waterways of the Howe Sound. They’ll see the best of the Sea To Sky Corridor with views from the Pacific Ocean, to winding waterfalls and glaciated coast mountains.
For a gift experience they can look forward to in the summer months, our Phantom Lake by Seaplane is a guided scenic flight that will leave them wide-eyed and amazed. After landing on the remote water of Phantom Lake, they can wander around and relax on the pristine beaches of the hanging lake. Keen for a cold-dip? Take a jump off the Seaplane into the glacial-fed waters of the lake. This will be a gift experience they’ll never forget!
No matter which flight you choose for your Squamish Adventurer, you can rest assured knowing that our gift cards don’t expire and they can use them anytime throughout the year. Choose a flight or a custom amount for your loved one and gift the experience of a lifetime.
