We took the optional 30 minute chopper flight... hey you are only here the once, so 10 mins is just not long enough. The sky was clear so this was a dream come true. The helicopter is easy to get into, and comfortable while flying. You get a thorough safety briefing before takeoff. The pilot tells you what is below... More

This tour is outstanding and the ground crew and pilot were absolutely fantastic. I took the early morning tour on June 5. It was spectacular and worth every penny. Getting the view of the mountains from the sky is absolutely breath taking. I have been in helicopters many, many times in my life and I have to say this tour... More

Tour date: 4 June 2015 I just went here this afternoon (4 June 2015) and I must say, it is the best experience I've ever had. 1. The Alpine Helicopters Inc. will pick you up at any hotels around Banff and surrounding, which is very good because as a tourist, it is really hard to get to the helipad (about... More

If you want to splurge on one thing in Canmore, taking a helicopter trip on a bluebird day is the way to go! The views from above are unmatched. Going out to Assiniboine is a perfect trip, you also get to see the view of Spray Lake from above and you fly over the Three Sisters. Worth it!

We went mid week on a clear blue day. We didn't pre-book and managed to get a ride with only an hours wait. The booking process was very simple and we paid just before the safety and preflight check. All instructions were clear and boarding was simple, then your ready for take off. The pilots instructions we're clear, concise and... More

I have lived in the Bow Valley for 17 years and have always wanted to see the Rockies from a helicopter! It was everything I expected and more!

From the beginning to the end, Alpine Helicopter tours was amazing! We were originally supposed to go on Saturday but because of the wind conditions the pilot himself suggested we come back on Sunday so we could have the best experience as the weather was suppose to be better.. And was it ever! The honesty we received from the staff... More

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
