This is our most popular experience and the 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!
Enjoy a bird’s eye view of The Sea To Sky’s mountainous region which 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 you 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.
