I cannot say enough wonderful words about this peak life experience (pun intended har har). Breathtaking. Majestic. Thrilling. I participated in the ride as part of a familiarization trip with my co-workers at Evergreen Escapes. We were exploring Alberta to learn about the area and identify activities and accommodations to include in our adventure travel tour offerings. Hands down, this... More

Going up in a helicopter has always been an experience to be avoided by us -- fear of heights, fear of falling, etc. But I have to say that my fears were put to rest almost immediately. the only time I felt any stress was when we were being buffeted by the winds. and that was for just a short...

Booked a private flight for me and my wife landing in the wilderness for half an hour for photos and snow booting. At $849+tax it was worth every penny for the views and experience the pilot was great along with the views, we got to see mountain sheep on the high peak and landing/taking off in the wilderness was great....

Hello Robert, I'm happy to hear that you enjoyed your experience. The Marvel Pass tour is by far our most spectacular given that it is the only one of our sightseeing tours which provides a stop for guests to get out of the helicopter and enjoy our amazing mountain scenery. Just to be clear due to time constraints (landing for... More

My wife got me a helicopter trip for Christmas and it was truly a great gift. The weather was beautiful and the view was stunning when we flew over the Three Sisters. It was just a short ride but enough to make a long-lasting, excellent memory. I was very impressed by the professionalism of the team that executes the flight... More

We were ushered into a room for briefing before going onto the helicopters. The ride and tour was really good, so glad that we decided to do this. We shared the helicopter with 2 other passengers and it was just nice, not overly crowded. The views of glaciers, snow capped mountains and lake was magnificent.

Truly amazing! You skim over mountain tops, and then the landscape drops below you! What a ride! The views of the Canadian Rockies from above is spectacular! There are three levels of flights you can take...go for the Mt. Assiniboine (30-min.) flight. It's expensive, but you won't regret it at all!

A great experience for the family. The scenery was unreal and seeing it from above was something we'll never forget. And my three girls LOVED having a "lady pilot." They still talk about this six months later.

We were five (5) plus our pilot Paul on a nice sunny day . We first obtained our security session and then we were off. Our pilot provided a very smooth ride with a stop on Marvel Pass. Our stop gave us a chance to see the cabin as well as the lake. We then continued our flight back to... More
