Wilderness North Aerial Tours

Flying and Air Sports
The scenic landscape of Lake Superior flying over Silver Islet, the abandoned silver mine from the late 1800s at the tip of the Sleeping Giant. – Monica Prelle

A Wilderness North Aerial Tour is the only way to truly see and appreciate the beauty of the rugged shores of Lake Superior including the famed Sleeping Giant and Nor'wester Mountain range

The door closes, the pilot throttles up the engine of the historic Canadian made de Havilland Beaver and taxies out into the Thunder Bay Harbour. You’re on your way to seeing the majestic landscapes which surround Thunder Bay, the heart of the continent as your aerial adventure unfolds.

The low hum of the motor fills the airplane as you lift off from the water on your way to see the land unfold as only the birds see it, from the air. Fly over the lush Boreal Forests surrounding Kakabeka Falls to the emerald blue waters lapping at the beaches of Silver Islet.

Choose from a multitude of tour packages, ranging from 30 minutes to an all day adventure, and prepare to be awed.

Bring your camera, your sense of adventure, and we’ll take care of the rest.
