Scenic Flights Summer Outdoor Activities

From above, alpine lakes and ancient coulees are a whole new kind of dazzling. Do a scenic aerial tour of Alberta and see views you can't get anywhere else. • Only here: A Rocky Mountain tour by helicopter or a fixed-wing plane makes soaring peaks into digestible topography. Somehow, the mountains look as small as toys, but seem to spread on forever. • YOLO: At the Reynolds-Alberta Museum, hunker into a biplane’s open cockpit. Let the air treat your face like a windsock as you check out the view of Westaskawin County.

Unlike when settlers headed north into the Peace River country in the early 1900's, today it is possible to get adventurous in the Peace region with relative ease. Explore with camping, river travel, by motorcycle, by air, and on horseback.
