Tourism Squamish recently invited myself and some other local online media folks to come get a taste of life in nearby Squamish. It is like a little secret paradise, less than an hour’s drive from Vancouver. In this four part series, I will share with you some of the adventures we experienced.

Squamish Explorer Flight Seeing Tour with Sea to Sky Air

Generally, I don’t like flying, and I thought flying in a tiny little 4-seater plane would be even more scary, but I was in for a surprise with Sea to Sky Air. I had never been in a small plane before. It’s the BIG planes that are scary! This flight was a breeze, and that’s because of the small car-like feel of the little aircraft, and now I want one because I swear to God, this sightseeing-by-air was one of the very best experiences of my life! I need to come back, we were in heaven!

Watch as we fly above and beyond the massive granite cliffs of the Stawamus Chief, the cascading waters of Shannon Falls, and the spectacular peaks of the Tantalus range to see what really makes Squamish one of the world’s most beautiful places. If you want to experience this yourself, don’t worry they’re open through the winter too!
