“It’s not down in any map, true places never are.”

Herman Melville

All journeys begin with a dream, a destination, and a map. Maps represent the real world on a much smaller scale and help us travel from one location to another. They inform us of the world around us and reveal where we are in relation to it.

To the explorer a map is a tool that inspires the imagination. It’s a catalyst for adventure – the start of an epic quest to an exciting new destination located somewhere off the beaten path. If this sounds like you then the newest edition of our route map may be just the thing you’re looking for. We’ve given it a facelift, a splash of new colour, and made it easier to read. We fly to 16 airports on our regularly scheduled flights and, in conjunction with our affiliate airline Wilderness Seaplanes, connect to more than fifty other destinations in the province. Whatever your passion – hiking, biking, adventure touring, skiing, kayaking and more – it’s just a short flight away.

We hope our new map inspires you to explore all that British Columbia has to offer. So dream a dream, find your true place and let the journey begin.
