See natural landscapes rarely seen by visitors on a helicopter tour over the mountains of Whistler. Choose a departure times that fit your schedule, and select one of two tours: a 12-minute tour over Whistler, or a 39-minute tour of British Columbia. As you fly over meadows and lakes inaccessible to the public, hear pilot commentary about the area’s geology. Pickup from Whistler Village makes for a hassle-free adventure.

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.

Loved the BC Tour!

Worth every penny, an amazing experience

We travel a lot and have taken helicopter tours on multiple vacations because it is the best way to see the area where you are staying. This is exceptional as others have posted, as the mountains in the Whistler area are jaw dropping, even landing...More
