flightseeing tours

Tweedsmuir South Provincial Park | Tyler Cave

Glaciers, mountain lakes, peaks and valleys, hidden fishing spots and rarely-traversed trails – you can visit all this and more courtesy of a flightseeing tour in the Cariboo Chilcotin Coast. Whether by floatplane or helicopter, a flightseeing tour can take you to remote regions of beautiful British Columbia to discover some of the most stunning scenery you can imagine – as well as providing a gateway for further backcountry adventures.

Touch down on a picturesque, glacier-fed lake, then embark from the floatplane with your gear in tow for a backcountry hiking and camping excursion into the wilderness, where it’s likely the only mammals you encounter will be of the four-footed variety. Hike your way up mountain ridges and through alpine meadows to find a scenic spot to setup your tent, where the air is so clear you’ll be amazed at the number of stars you see in the sky, and you’ll sleep deeply after a day of adventuring through the wilderness.

Mountain bikers can embark on one-way trail backcountry rides for single or multiple days, getting further into the wild than on a round trip backcountry mountain bike trek alone. Guided backcountry excursions are also a popular flightseeing add-on, so you can ride or hike the most sought-after trails and overnight in ideal locations, watching the sunrise each morning as you gear up for another adventurous day.

Laid-back wanderers are invited to explore at their own pace with day trip flightseeing tours; touring lakes, rivers, mountains and glaciers – typically with a stop at one or two top locations to provide time for photography and shorter hikes, or just taking in the magnificent views and learning about the region’s ecology and history from your tour operator. Getting off the beaten path and connecting with the wild has never been easier with heli and floatplane flightseeing tours!
