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!

Was to be a flight "over" Banff and Lake Minnewanka but we never made it as far as the Banff park gates. Reserved flight (party of 4) in advance specifically to have my father, for his 75th birthday, fly in co-pilot seat. I made this clear at time of reservation. As we're boarding, they motion a lady walk-in to the... More

Hi Wendy, Thank you so much for your review! We were so happy to be a part of your birthday and feel honoured that you chose to share it with us. You chose to add on the one hour exploration hike and picnic to your tour which we think just makes the heli experience that much more special. Thanks again... More

This Heli Trip was an integral part of a 'Rocky Mountaineer' tour, so not sure what the cost is for an independent traveller, however it is one heck of a trip. The whole set up is professionally run and the staff are friendly & informative, especially the Pilots. Our particular trip only lasted 12 minutes, we wish we could have... More

We had an amazing time on the heli tour. The pilots were fun and very knowledgeable about the area. All of the staff were so welcoming and went above and beyond for us. We had a very memorable flight and I would definitely recommend this experience to others. We would love to take another tour in the future.

This time neither of us felt motion sick and the views were incredible! Being from Calgary both my wife and I are probably a bit jaded when it comes to... More

I did a 2 hour sightseeing tour which included a 20 minute sightseeing flight before landing on top of a mountain and going for an hour long show shoeing hike with concluded with hot chocolate and baileys - Wonderful day - the pilot was very knowledgeable and friendly. Definitely want to come back with my friends when they visit next.

We had the most amazing experience with Ralph Sliger and his Heli tours. We were a family of 5 and we went on the Heli- snowshoe ride. We absolutely loved it. What a thrill going over the mountains with. Ralph's reassuring and knowledgeable commentary. We felt really safe and looked after - as well as having a really amazing adventure!... More
