Whistler Floatplane Travel

You know you're on your way to a remote mountain village when travel arrangements include a float plane. This service connecting Victoria and Vancouver to Whistler is available from May 1-September 28, 2014 (the lake is covered in ice during the winter months).

The Coast Mountains of British Columbia boast some of the most spectacular wilderness scenery in the world and there's no better way to appreciate it than from the air. Majestic glaciers, rugged peaks, unique volcanic formations and lush alpine meadows are some of the amazing landscapes of Garibaldi Park, just a few minutes by air from the heart of Whistler. Every guest gets a window seat for picture taking and a stereo headset to listen to your pilot's knowledgeable commentary regarding the fascinating history and geology of this amazing area.

You can also explore Whistler from the sky on a scenic floatplane tour.
