Helicopter Glacier Kayaking

Every spring, alpine and glacier lakes begin to thaw from the top down, revealing vibrant turquoise water so extraordinary looking you have to see it to believe it. Embark on a helicopter flight through the spectacular Cascade Mountains before we arrive at our favourite glacial lake. See our beautiful province from a completely different perspective and enjoy magnificent views as you fly over cascading waterfalls, glaciers, rivers, valleys, and mountains.

Take a moment to revel in the true beauty of British Columbia’s untouched wilderness as we set down beside a lake and get ready for an experience of a lifetime. Choose from glacier melt water kayaking or paddle boarding and enjoy complete peace and serenity. Vibrant blue melt water is only available in June. Once the ice is off the lake, the best times to visit are late July through to September. However, kayaking and paddle boarding are available until the ice returns in October.

The tour includes a 60 minute round trip sightseeing flight from our home base in rural Abbotsford, use of kayaks or paddle boards, 4 hours on location, trip photos, and a gourmet picnic lunch from Lepp Farm Market.

During the month of June, the snow along the edges of frozen lakes melts first, revealing the vibrant blue seen in the picture below on the left. A month later, the ice is all melted off the lake, revealing the lake’s true colour, seen in the picture below on the right. This is great for paddling leisurely across the huge glacial lakes.
