Overview
Take to the skies and enjoy breathtaking views over Canada’s rugged mountainscape on this 30- or 40-minute glacier sightseeing experience by floatplane from Whistler. Hop into your flightseeing plane near Green Lake and take your seat. Then, watch as the land disappears beneath you and soar high over Whistler’s rugged terrain. Admire panoramic views over the region’s mighty glaciers, soaring peaks, shimmering lakes and dense forests. Listen as your pilot shares insight into the valleys’ rich geography, and upgrade your tour for a further 10 minutes’ airtime.
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!
