Beautiful views, covered a huge area, interesting information about the area from the pilot, great comfortable plane. The people at Glacier Air were lovely.

Our family gave us a mountain sightseeing trip with Glacier Air. Cam, our pilot was awesome, professional and knowledgable. We recommend Glacier Air for your next sightseeing trip while in the Squamish/Whistler area.

Book your trip now!! Glacier Air were more than happy to take my booking as a solo passenger for a charter sightseeing tour where other companies had refused. From the first phone call to the fond farewell, everyone I encountered were so friendly and welcoming. My pilot was fantastic in tailoring my flight to what I wanted to see and... More

What an AMAZING experience flying in the Squamish area. My wife has always been nervous of flying and was very hesitant of going. But with Colette behind the controls my wives experience was spectacular. I highly recommend Glacier Air to be on your bucket list. I'll be telling all my friends.

This flight was one of the highlights of my summer and it was a great pleasure to be part of your fund raising campaign for breast cancer. Helping nervous flyers overcome their fears so they can relax and enjoy the spectacular scenery is very satisfying for both the pilot and the passengers, but surviving breast cancer and conquering the fear...

We had an hour's flight over ice fields, glaciers and mountains. Akshay was knowledgeable and friendly. Even rearranging our flight time because of smoke cloud from forest fires was no problem. Even better than our helicopter flight over Grand Canyon!! Memorable day.

Wow, the grand canyon tour is spectacular in it's own way so we take this as a great complement! Sometimes we have to alter our flight route due to weather, clouds and in your case, smoke from nearby forest fires. When this happens we try our best to alter course so you are still able to enjoy the spectacular scenery... More
