Charters

Book a charter

There are about 150,000 square miles of inaccessible territory in northern British Columbia alone. As you can imagine, there are hundreds of pristine lakes and rivers to explore!

Whether you are hauling supplies, surveying, or planning your next outdoor adventure we offer charter flights throughout British Columbia and the Yukon.

We know the geography of British Columbia like our own backyard. We can fly you out for unguided canoeing, kayaking, rafting and hiking adventures. Experience the true frontier of B.C. - embark on a multi-day trip.

If fishing is more your thing, naturally, inaccessible lakes and streams contain a great number of fish. Additionally you will experience great scenery and solitude. We offer daily fly-in & fly-outs or we can make arrangements for multi-day trips.

For rules, rates and charges please view our Domestic Tariff or send us and email.
