The whole operation is run in a professional manner and yet we felt that everyone was so friendly and helpful! Safety is very important so a briefing is done. Then it's into the heli where someone helps you to fasten your seat belts and get your earphones on. You can hear the pilot and talk to him too. But the... More

I booked the 55 min ultimate Assiniboine flight with 1 hr wilderness drop as a single rider. I was originally supposed to go with a couple of other people. Unfortunately, right before I was supposed to leave, I got a call saying the two other passengers had rescheduled so if I wanted to still do this tour I would have... More

Instead of toys and a party this year, my 10 year old son and I decided that a mom/son day that included a 20 minute helicopter ride out of the Icefields centre would be more fun and memorable. It was his first time in a helicopter and he LOVED it! He even got to sit in the front on the... More

Did this helicopter tour as part of my Rocky Mountaineer Tour and boy what a thrill it was! This was my first time on a helicopter and it was such a sensation to fly over the Rockies! Got to ride shotgun in the co-pilot's seat and it was probably the best seat in the house! Staff and pilots were all... More

If you are just looking for a helicopter ride the 12 minute flight is ok but you don't get far enough from the base to see much. You see a little of the valley, but you don't see much else. Very disappointing.

12 minutes went too fast. I was lucky enough to sit up front in the co-pilot's seat so got a full view of the beautiful scenery. Weather was good for flying and photography. The staff were efficient, welcoming and experienced. Photographs were taken before the flight and were ready afterwards, quite expensive but on such an occasion they were a... More

This helicopter tour is magnificent. It was part of our Rocky Mountaineer Train tour after leaving the train in Banff, and traveling by motor coach to Calgary. This attraction is off Highway 1 just outside of Canmore and across from a casino. Our ride was 12 minutes and we flew over mountains, lakes, canyons and forests. The crew was fantastic.... More

I was very impressed by the whole operation- the ground crew was very polite and professional and did their best to reassure the non aviators that helicopters are the perfect way to view the Canadian Rockies! The weather was marginal at best, but the pilot did an awesome job and was obviously very familiar with the best route to take... More

My boyfriend surprised me with a Heli flight over the mountains and a snowshoe hike at the top. The staff were super friendly and our pilot Dan was a terrific guide! Baileys & hot chocolate included, we would absolutely recommend this company to others looking for a unique mountain experience.
