SOARING TOURS
For many people soaring is a beautiful dream. Silently sharing a column of rising air with the eagles above the breathtaking BC Rockies in a glider, the Invermere Soaring Centre can make this dream come true!
GLACIER FLIGHT
When the soaring conditions are truly spectacular, heights of over 12,000 feet can be reached. This allows us to travel deep into the mountain ranges where the higher peaks and glaciers are. These flights are not for the fain of heart, with strong thermals and fast climbs, you will enjoy approximately 1.5 hours of the most spectacular mountain views in the Duo Discus. Call ahead for an assessment of weather suitability.
