Leave the Whistler valley behind and fly deep into the pristine and rugged landscape that gives these coastal mountains their sublime character. Your day will start with a scenic flight over timeless glaciers before landing at a beautiful backcountry to enjoy your private backcountry picnic. 

A private 2.5+ Hour lakeside, backcountry lunch where you will be free to explore the local wildlife, sample delicious charcuterie and salads, and perhaps bring along a bottle of your favourite wine.  Your guide will be happy to teach you about your surroundings, go for short hikes in the sub-alpine terrain, and ensure a gourmet catered experience.

Want to add even more to your experience? For an additional cost you can add alpine paddle-boarding to your day. See below for prices and conditions.
