Want to see Whistler's wilderness without having to huff up any mountains? Take a comfortable helicopter ride over some of British Columbia's most stunning glaciers and snowcapped peaks to orient yourself with Whistler, or amp up the joy ride with longer aerial explorations of Whistler and Blackcomb mountains and Garibaldi Provincial Park. You can even choose to touch down on Rainbow Glacier for a short stroll, where the scenery might take your breath away after all.
  • Two tour options: 12 minutes over Whistler, or 39 minutes over BC
  • Aerial views of British Columbia rarely experienced by visitors
  • Guide provides an overview of the area’s 12,000-year-old geology
  • Hassle-free, round-trip shuttle service from Whistler Village included
What to Expect
Your day starts with convenient pickup from Whistler Village. After greeting your pilot, listen to a safety briefing and board the helicopter. Your itinerary depends on which of the two tour options you select.
If you’ve selected the 12-minute Whistler Explorer, enjoy immediate views of Whistler and surrounding areas after takeoff. As you soar thousands of feet in the air, take in the rare sight of meadows, waterfalls, and lakes unreachable by car or on foot.
On the 39-minute British Columbia Experience, go above and beyond the Whistler area. After a scenic flight with unimpeded views of snow-capped mountains, disembark the helicopter at Rainbow Glacier, where your pilot provides an overview of the region’s 12,000-year-old geology.
On either tour, return to the heliport with bird’s-eye photos of British Columbia that very few visitors have the opportunity to take.

We had an amazing experience. The flight up was spectacular and the walk on the glacier was much longer than expected. I would recommend this trip without hesitation.
