I was gifted this tour for Valentine's Day this year and WOW was it amazing! The process is so simple with a short safety video and up you go! Our pilot was very informative, and he even made a special loop back to see some mountain goats! This was on my bucket list for the longest time, and even though... More

I surprised my girlfriend with a Marvel Pass tour. Tyler our Pilot was amazing. He was very informative about the area and knew the answer to all of the questions we asked. The stop over was amazing the view was something from a Nat Geo. If you're thinking of proposing you WILL win life.

Thank you for your review, it is great to hear from guests who were thrilled with their experience. Marvel Pass is a spectacular location. We go there at least a couple times a month for proposals. The best part of all is that you are the only ones there, so privacy is guaranteed! Thanks for sharing. More

To start let me dispel any conflict of interest issues by stating that I do NOT recommend ANY helicopter tours in this area of the rockies but especially not from Alpine. Why? After doing a tour and traveling this area I realized: 1. Much higher and bigger mountains along with glaciers are easily seen by car on the road to... More

PilotCanmore, Manager Tourism Operations at Alpine Helicopters Inc., responded to this review

I am sorry to hear you did not enjoy your experience 5 months ago. Our heliport location dictates that tours must take in some of the reservoir and town site on the approach and departure from the facility. This allows us the clearest and most direct path to the sightseeing routes we fly . Our 30 minute tour travels to... More

A number of flights are available of different durations. We flew up over the three sisters mountains and into the next valley swooping close to the jagged ridges. We followed the river down the valley before heading back. A good close up of the Rockies peaks.

My Alpine Helicopter ride in Canmore—I chose the Three Sisters Peaks Tour—was the highlight of my trip to Alberta. First, the wiggly, backward liftoff from the heliport, then our pilot kicked it and we twisted over the hotels along the Bow Valley and straight to the Three Sisters—Hope, Faith, and Charity, smack in front a few miles ahead. The rotor... More

We hiked to Mt. Assiniboine in fair weather, stayed a few days, and then on the way out, it started to snow. Luckily, there was space in an Alpine Helicopter and we were down in half an hour. The helicopter was first class and I am sure the views would have been great, but we were socked in and did... More

Thank you for taking the time to submit your review. We provide air transfers for Assiniboine Lodge Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays (Mondays on long weekends) during their operating season. Due to varying weather conditions these transfer flights are not always geared to sightseeing. I'm glad to hear we were able to be of assistance and saved you the hike out... More

This was our main treat for our 25 wedding anniversary tour of western Canada so we opted for the 1hr Marvel Pass tour. The trip was fantastic from start to finish. Our pilot, Tyler, was excellent and not only explained our surroundings but also, when I sat next to him, how the helicopter worked. The good thing about the tour... More
