Glacier NP is so massive and taking a heli-tour is the best way to see a great portion of it. Flying across the continental divide, seeing melting glaciers, watching the geography change. I've never been happier to face my fear of flying in my life. My brother rode in the front of the helicopter, with a glass bottom, I don't... More

Excellent trip. The owner/operators of this business are down to earth people who know how to do a professional tour. We arrived a half hour early and they were flexible and got us in the air right away so we could fly the one hour tour, even though we originally had booked a half hour. Our pilot was courteous, friendly... More

This was our first heli tour and it was more than fantastic! I can not compare to any other helicopter tour but, I do recognize quality of service, knowledge and professionalism. The experience was exceptional from every point of view: punctuality, all the great landmarkks from Glacier NP we saw from the air, a funny, respectful and knowledgeable pilot... and,... More

We had never taken a helicopter tour before, but decided to splurge. Wow! We took the 1 hour tour & got to go from West Glacier up to the Canadian border and back. We could see several glaciers up close - something you can't do from a car or tour bus. The park is breath-taking from below and just as... More

This is an hour tour and if 4 or more the cost was $250 each. The views are incredable and the pilot was very knowledgable. It is the best way to see the park, the glaciers and we actually crossed into Canda. I think this was best tour we have done and we have done several heli tours in other... More

We had a wonderful time on the flight. The staff was professional and flexible with our large group of 10. We arrived an hour early, so they took us then. The views were amazing and we had an unforgettable way to celebrate my parents 25th wedding anniversary. I will recommend them to anyone looking for a special way to see... More

I've been on many helicopter rides in various parks. This exceeded all of them. The equipment is top notch and safety is an obvious priority. We went for 30 minutes because we had one person in our party who had never been in a helicopter. She loved the ride and felt very safe. You are able to see things from... More

I'm soooo glad me and my mom chose to tour GNP via helicopter, and especially with this company! I booked this tour for us on a whim, just because I knew if I sat and thought about it I would chicken out... I've never been on a helicopter and I'm afraid of heights! I called to make reservations and we... More

Since Glacier is mostly accessible through hiking trails (over 400 miles of them), this is a perfect way to experience a much greater portion of the Park. The company (pilots & staff) were enthusiastic and eager to please. Glacier from the air is a unique experience. It is well worth the ticket price. We took the 1 hour flight and... More

Amazing park views. We chose the hour option to go to the border (It was neat to see the line cut through the trees for the border division). It is west side access close to the NP and easy to spot on hwy. Staff was friendly but not a super Hi-tech operation. If you are used to helo rides at... More
