Soak Up Golden Ears Park from Above
As we depart from our base at the Abbotsford Airport, look out for Stave Falls Dam, a popular National Historic Site of Canada constructed in 1912. Learn about the renewable logging practices of B.C. before entering the iconic Golden Ears Provincial Park.
The first sight you see as we enter the park is Mt. Crickmer, the southernmost mountain of the Garibaldi Range and the highest point in Mission. Take in the spectacular views of Stave Lake and Alouette Lake. Admire the sprawling landscape of temperate rainforests and mountain vistas as we loop around the inaccessible Mt. Robie Reid and Mt. Judge Howay before returning to base.
The tour includes 30 minutes of flight time and unparalleled views of Golden Ears Provincial Park.
