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! The staff at Alpine Helicopters in Canmore is very friendly and organized well, our pilot gave us lots of informative information about the areas we were flying over. We had a beautiful... More

The views were amazing, we got to see the mountain goats on a ridge line also. I can totally recommend this trip, if you do do it then stretch to the 30 minute flight it's... 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

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

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
