Rockies Heli Canada's Kananaskis Base, located between Calgary and Canmore, offers helicopter tours for those wanting an epic view of the Rocky Mountains and easy access to the iconic sights of Banff National Park, Lake Louise, Moraine Lake, and deep into the backcountry from a super convenient location. Our experienced pilots will whisk you from the flatland into the amazing rise of the Rocky Mountain peaks to experience unbelievable views, all packed in to a tour as short as only (the most incredible) 20 minutes of your life. If you’re interested in something even more unique, why not stop for a hike, a mountain top picnic, or bring a special someone to enjoy a private romantic tour you’ll never forget. Whether you're coming from Calgary, staying in Banff, Canmore, or Lake Louise, you’re just a few minutes away from the heli-adventure of a lifetime. Crossing off your bucket list has never been so easy!

Went on the romantic heli tour. Staff was very accommodating - replacing the champagne with red wine. Pilot was friendly and had lots to say about the area. This particular tour went primarily north and east over the damns and flatlands - would have preferred to go further into the mountain passes. They have those tours too, just not this... More

I am glad to hear you enjoyed our Love in the Rockies romance package with the 20 minute flight. If you want to get further into the mountains of the helicopter flight, I recommend our Exclusive Love in the Rockies package that includes a 42 minute heli tour that would take you further into the mountains.

We were greeted by a friendly staff. I was very impressed with the young man Darren an aborigional from the local area. He provided us with information on Dead Mans Flats and the origin of the name. He has a strong heart. Our pilot Darren was easy going and informative. We spent about an hour over the Rockies and I... More

Went to Kananaskis for a helicopter tour over the Canadian Rockies. The pilot gave an excellent overview of the area, the history, geology and pointed out the main features during the flight.

I had never flown on a helicopter until today. I was a bit nervous but the folks at Kananaskis Helicopter Tours were warm and welcoming. Our pilot, Kenton, was friendly and professional. The ride was smooth and once we were in the air I forgot about everything but the magnificent views. We did the 20 minute ride and I wish... More

Add this awe inspiring trip to your Canadian Rockies Itinerary. Up into the air and over the foothills and cliffs, this was a vacation highlight. They have an experienced and pleasant crew and the pilot narrates what you are viewing. We were on the Rocky Mountaineer tour so we only had a 12 minute ride, but if you are on... More

We had paid for this helicopter trip, via The Rocky Mountaineer Company (who operate the Train) and we were squashed into this helicopter, we could not actually move our arms and it was incredibly uncomfortable, hot and unacceptable. Everyone commented on this. Never anywhere in the world have we experienced this. Even in the front seat next to the pilot... More

Dear Tarakay, We here at Rockies Heli are so sorry to hear that you did not find our experience enjoyable, that you felt squished and that the flight was too short. We do recognize that helicopters are relatively small and offer a different experience to a fixed wing aircraft. For example, the seats are benches with no armrests in between,... More

Well organized, safety conscious, expertly flown. This was one of the highlights to the Banff -Lake Louise vacation. This was arranged on our Rocky Mountaineer trip but I'm very glad that we took advantage of the opportunity. The trip lasted 15 minutes or less but it was a great experience. Never higher than 5000 feet with an experienced pilot.

We had the short 12-15 minute flight that was already scheduled and paid for as part of Rocky Mountaineer 'First Passage to the West' tour. My wife was initially somewhat afraid to fly in the small helicopter but once we were airborne, she loved it. Although the flight was short (and somewhat expensive based on the posted fares), we both... More
