There are several options, depending on whether you fly to Vancouver or Calgary. Experiencing the arrival by seaplane is particularly breathtaking. Flying in one of the last “Beavers”, the legendary and robust Canadian transport planes from the 1940’s, you soar across the majestic coastal mountains on an unforgettable journey filled with countless glaciers, lakes, and valleys and the world’s largest and only still intact rainforest region in the temperate latitudes that gently supply Tetachuck Lake with water. This is a must for lovers of nostalgia and aviation fans alike.
