Garibaldi Provincial Park Heli Tour
- Private Group
Experience the Remote Southeastern Regions of Garibaldi Provincial Park
Embark on this aerial journey to witness some of the most beautiful glacial landscapes BC has to offer. The classic West Coast scenery quickly transforms into an endless stretch of rugged mountains, lush alpine, and rising snow-capped peaks as far as the eye can see. As we transition from Golden Ears Park into Garibaldi Park, the first of eight spectacular glaciers will appear, each unique in shape and size.
The ice fields are a photographer’s dream and the opportunities to capture BC’s immense beauty are endless. During the winter months, the entire region is covered in a thick blanket of snow. Often the glaciers are hidden. Keep this in mind if you’re hoping to see crevasses and extraordinary blue ice.
