The staff at Glacier Air (special thanks to passionate Colette and Akshay) has helped me to arrange my secret in-air proposal to my fiance. It was very unique and awesome!

Booked the web special - Tantalus Ice Falls (~35 minute flight) and had a fantastic time. We loved Colette's friendliness and knowledge, and the views were breathtaking. I even got to take controls of the plane too! Highly recommended!

We try to make each trip an memorable experience in a positive way. We love what we do and we love sharing it with people! All our pilots are also qualified flight instructors and we are licenced by Transport Canada to teach, so allowing guests to take the controls for a bit is safe, legal and gives us an opportunity...

i booked a 60min tour over Pemberton Icefields last Tuesday and wanted it for Saturday,' kind of short notice' I thought, but the guy on the phone was fantastic and nothing was a problem. They took my Crdeit Card number, but wouldn't charge me anything by Saturday. In case of bad weather or being sick or whatever you can postpone.... More

My buddy and I took a day of skiing at Whistler in search of something to do that gave our legs a rest. After much research we agreed on a tour at Glacier Air. Words nor pictures can do the views justice! Match that with the value of $74CAD online price for the Tantalus tour and it is really unbeatable.... More

Thanks for the great review! Our air tours are a great alternative to a day on the slopes and gives you a chase to rest those wobbly legs. We like to offer a little education with each tour and maybe spark an interest in learning to fly at the same time. We look forward to flying with you again! More

We went for a 45 minute tour for my wife's birthday. Good value for the money for the tour element alone, but fantastic value when you consider that the pilots are certified flight instructors and allow you to take the plane's controls for as much as your comfortable with. That exceeded my expectations as I was just expecting a token... More

You’re right, JK604 - sounds like your wife was quite comfy behind the controls; a budding aviatrix, perhaps? We do believe that the sky’s the limit, and always do the most we can to enhance our customers’ experience. We also appreciate your nod to the value for money – we try to remain as competitive as is possible! Big thanks... More

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.

Ah, the impulse flight. Sometimes those spur of the moment decisions turn out to be the best! So glad we were able to accommodate you at the last minute. Our intro flights are a great way to guarantee that you get some time at the controls. The bonus is that it’s impossible NOT to get some sightseeing in when you’re... More
