Cross a destination off your bucket list with unforgettable memories that are just a hop, skip, and a jump from Vancouver. Come experience the vastness of British Columbia, the best thing about escaping the city…
It is 8 o’clock in the morning, the sun is sparkling on the calm water of the Fraser River as it meets the Pacific Ocean. The six of you are waiting in the lounge at Million Air, sipping on a beverage and getting a quick briefing before boarding your private plane. It is time to rediscover, reconnect & revive your inner explorer!
Let’s take you to:
· Sunshine Coast · Skookumchuck Rapids · Princess Louisa/Chatterbox Falls
Leave the stress of city life behind and experience the natural wonders and peaceful pace of the Sunshine Coast. Very quickly you depart the concrete jungle to the rain forest that surrounds us. It is likely you will see very few people on your adventure today (an Adventica perk is small group travel). This spectacular journey starts with a scenic flight. You and your friends each get a seat giving you an unobstructed view of the water, mountains, and glaciers. The pilot describes your adventure through the Bose headsets you each will wear. Hear about the area, local stories, and maybe the wildlife you fly over. Whether it’s whales or mountain goats, they will be pointed out and, if possible, circled over for your enjoyment.
Fly over the Skookumchuck Rapids on your way to Egmont. As your aircraft touches down on the water, you are greeted by your private guide standing by with kayaks prepped for your afternoon adventure. Spend the next few hours under the watchful eye of ravens, hawks, and eagles as you explore the coastline. Stop for a forest walk and spend an hour to connect your mind and body with nature through Qi Gong, visualizations, grounding, and immune building exercises. These teachings will keep the wellness flowing long after you return home. Enjoy a tea ceremony and nibble on healthy muffins before returning by kayak to Egmont. Your package might include a southern style BBQ lunch or a beautiful multi-course gourmet meal using locally sourced and foraged treats from the forest.
Princess Louisa/Chatterbox Falls
Next, you hop back on your private aircraft to fly north to Princess Louisa, a narrow fjord lined with steep granite bluffs. James Bruce Falls, the tallest waterfall in North America and ninth tallest in the world feeds into Chatterbox Falls, the crown jewel of this marine provincial park. This area is only accessible by floatplane or by boat. The Malibu Rapids act as a gatekeeper to the fjord as boats can only enter twice a day when the tidal push raises the level of water over the rocks guarding the entrance. From the dock, follow the boardwalk to the base of the falls and revel in their roar!
And we promise to have you home before dinner!
