What You'll Get
DEAL FEATURED AND CHARGED IN US CURRENCY.
On this private helicopter tour, take a walk over ancient lava flows on an extinct sub-glacial volcano. Marvel at the evidence of the reaction of molten rock against the underside of a glacier. This particular type of volcano is known as a Tuya. It is a distinctive, flat-topped, steep-sided volcano formed when lava erupts through a thick glacier or ice sheet. At some point in time, an explosive eruption occurred blowing out the northern flank of the volcano, leaving pyroclastic rock debris everywhere. The crater is your playground. Enjoy at your leisure. Afterwards, return to the helicopter for a gourmet picnic lunch.You are able to choose your desired departure time. Your flightseeing tour must fall within daylight hours. For example, the earliest you can depart during the fall season is 8am and the latest you can depart is 1pm. If you wish to have a shorter tour, the departure times are more flexible.
Only one tour is booked per day, which allows for maximum time in the wilderness. Each leg of the flight is approximately 20 - 22 minutes. You and your private group are able to rotate seat positions so everyone can have a window seat.
Check in 30 minutes before your scheduled departure time to sign waivers, listen to a safety briefing, and load your personal gear and photos. The primary departure location is the home base in Abbotsford, BC, although your guide can certainly pick your party up from the Vancouver Heli Port or alternative locations (for an additional cost based on flight times and landing fees).
This package does not include any form of accommodation or ground transportation to the departure point.
