I was in Squamish for a night and I decided before heading to Vancouver to have the experience of an introductory flight. First time ever in a so small plane. Before taking off the instructor was fantastic giving the basic notions of flight!! Nice view of the mountains from above! I was a little scared flying in a so small... More

This experience was an awesome double win. For my wife’s birthday we wound up going for a flight over the Tantalus Mountains near Squamish, BC, where I was the pilot. Awesome Experience! ... I want to thank the staff of Glacier Air for an amazing time, service and taking the time to totally take care of me and my wife.... More

Bought a flight for my husband on his 70th.birthday. He got to fly the Cessna and land it all on his own. Instructor/pilot was amazing. Best gift ever!

We had such a great experience with glacier air! My uncle had taken me on the tantalus falls sightseeing flight when I was 10. This year I decided to treat my husband and my 8 yr old step son to the same flight. We all had an amazing flight and unforgettable family experience! Francois our pilot went above and beyond,...

I thoroughly enjoyed Glacier Air's aerial tour of the Tantalus Glacier and the Squamish Valley. My wife and 10 year old daughter were very impressed with it as well. The pilot was knowledgeable about the area and was entertaining. This was an adventure we will never forget. The service level was exceptional and all the staff and owner felt like... More

We did the Tantalus Glacier Tour. Our pilot, Nico pointed out the landmark lakes, mountains and glaciers and gave us safe close up views. Geology came alive. Whistler and Squamish are gorgeous from the road and ski runs, but the view from the air is amazing. The front office is friendly, response, and accommodating. Great value and looking forward to...

"Geology came alive". We love it! Yes, that is exactly what happens when you soar above the roads, ski runs, hiking trails and more, they all take on a whole new perspective and beauty. We are happy to hear you appreciate the value of your flight experience. Thank you. More

Our family had a great one-hour sightseeing trip. The staff and pilot were wonderful, the cost was very reasonable, and the views were outstanding. We took our 11 and 7 year old and they loved it! Thank you Glacier Air!

Wow! What an amazing experience! I was coming from Victoria, BC for my very first flying lesson and very first time being in a small plane. It wasn't as scary as I was expecting, but I attribute a lot of that to the Glacier Air staff. The staff was AMAZING. So helpful, patient, and friendly throughout the booking and reservation... More

There's nothing like the freedom of flight! So glad you got a taste of flying and completed an item on your bucket list. Our introductory fights are an amazing experience, so much so that many have gone on to take our flight training course. It can be addicting! Thank you for sharing. More

What you see from this ride has the highest WOW factor of any attraction we have been to on our trip thru Canada.

We are all about the "wow" factor! Many don't believe until they actually fly above the ancient glaciers, lakes, volcanic rock formations and more. The airplane ride definitely beats the helicopter tour in pricing and experience. Our Cessna's get almost as close and personal to the mountains as the heli, but for a fraction of the cost. Thanks for your... More
