Whistler helicopter tour with glacier landing on Rainbow Mountain

Whistler helicopter tour with glacier landing

Soar above Whistler Blackcomb's snowy peaks and fir-scattered valleys on a 25-minute helicopter flight. You’ll start with a bird’s-eye-view of the resort, followed by the striking Cheakamus Glacier and Garibaldi Provincial Park.

Part-way through the flight, you’ll land on Rainbow Mountain and step out for 15 minutes onto a 12,000-year-old glacier (subject to weather conditions). We recommend wearing warm clothing with plenty of layers, along with sturdy boots. Bring a camera if possible, as well as a pair of sunglasses if the sun's out so you can fully appreciate the panoramic views.
