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!

What an amazing thing to do for an epic date! The only heli-tour company that offers the snow shoeing trek as part of the package. This really makes the trip that much better - the helicopter is great but to get out, snow shoe and then sit and cuddle and sip on baileys and hot chocolate (water and snacks too)... More

Everyone here is incrediy friendly from the start. The owner will come and talk with you when he is not flying anyone around for tours. I will definitely be taking tour again and again. Flight time is reasonable. Of course you want to stay up there longer but you do not feel as if it is too short. I recommend... More

Our family took the 20 min tour over the Rockies. We couldn't have asked for more perfect weather! The scenery was breathtaking!!! Our pilot was friendly and knowledgeable. The staff were very friendly, helpful and accommodating, which helped make this an experience we will never forget! Would definitely recommend this tour if you are in the Canmore area.

We were picked up on time in Banff by a very friendly and helpful driver and taken to the base at Kananaskis. After checking in, we had time for a complimentary coffee and biscuit before our flight briefing. We paid an extra $25 for the front seat upgrade for one person, which was well worth the money. The remaining five... More

Our family of five went for the heli ride over the Rockies , everybody was extremely nice, helpful and made the experience very enjoyable.

Our Kananaskis Heli ride was in doubt until the last moment due to bushfire smoke that plagued our Rocky Mountaineer trip since leaving Vancouver 4 days earlier..
