What You Can Expect

Helicopter Tour over the Canadian Rockies

Canadian Rockies

Start with easy pickup from your Banff hotel at a time of your choice, and head to the Canmore heliport located near the Stoney Nakoda Resort and Casino. After checking in, meet your pilot and receive a brief introduction to helicopter safety. Then board your helicopter and take off! During the 20-minute flight, listen to commentary about the sights from your pilot through your two-way headset.

Soon, you’re in the heart of the Canadian Rocky mountains and cruising at a speed of 100 miles (161 km) per hour. Admire the surrounding mountains while you soar over Bow Valley, and learn about the First Nations people in the area.

Cross over the impressive massif of Mt Lougheed, which has three summits, the tallest one at 10,187 feet (3,105 meters). Capture aerial views of its narrow ledges covered in snow, and check out the adjacent Wind Mountain, with an even higher elevation.

Then enjoy a smooth flight back to the helipad. When you land, your tour ends with hotel drop-off.

Customer Reviews

5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2014

Was the best thing ever, it was hit and miss wether we were going to be able to go due to wind conditions, and the pilot did have to change the route we took, which was a bit unfortunate but still very well worth doing, and we appreciated that it was for our safety this was done. Life time experience

5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2014

Haven't got the words to adequately describe the thrill of climbing to over 11 thousand feet and sailing over the snow covered mountain tops. A brilliant hour.
