Don’t you want to fly high above Revelstoke?
Look up, way up! Get a bird’s eye view of beautiful Revelstoke from the air. Marvel at the breathtaking views of mountain peaks, verdant valleys, glaciers, alpine lakes, the mighty Columbia River and the picturesque town itself. We’re tucked between the Monashee and Selkirk mountain ranges, so this is a unique opportunity to check those peaks out from above by flying in an airplane or helicopter in the summer.
Easy: Get your feet wet on a quick valley helicopter tour around Wap Lake or the Revelstoke Dam. These tours show off our amazing waterfalls, rivers, the town site of Revelstoke, and the Columbia Valley. You’ll be itching for more after this taster, so hop on a glacier tour of the Blanket Icefield, Mount Begbie, Bourne Glaciers, or the Albert Icefields.
Intermediate: If that’s not enough wind on your face, try a tandem paraglide flight. Situated at 2,200m, the highest vertical flight in North America leaves from the peak of Mount Mackenzie. Each pilot is fully qualified, trained, and approved under the standards of the Hang Gliding and Paragliding Association of Canada. Flights are available year round, open to all ages, and require no prior experience.
Difficult: If you have your own wing, visiting paragliders are welcome to fly at Revelstoke Mountain Resort. Please read & follow the rules for everyone’s safety here.
