We did the heli tour of Glacier largely because the Going to the Sun road wasn't open yet so parts of the park were not accessible by any other means, but I would recommend doing this tour to anyone at any time. The views are amazing! The pilot was awesome and we learned a lot about the glaciers & the... More

Glacier National Park is amazing from the ground but it is even more spectacular from above. We saw waterfalls, glaciers, hidden hangouts...it was very cool. It's a little pricey but it's worth it if you want a unique experience.

Husband had wanted to take a helicopter tour for years. This was THE place to do that! The people that run this also rent cars, which we needed to do as RV's aren't allowed in Glacier National park. They are incredibly friendly as was the pilot. It was probably a once in a lifetime thing for us as it was... More

I decided to spurge on my trip to Glacier and take a heli-tour. I thought it would be expensive, but hey, life is short and then you die! It was nowhere near as expensive as I thought it would be. Regardless, it was definitely worth it! You will see glaciers, mountains, lakes, etc., that you would never be able to... More

Fantastic experience. It was a beautiful day for this flight.We did the 30 minute tour and flew over the entire park and all all the lakes and glaciers up close and personal. The pilot was informative and a good pilot. It was one of the highlights of this vacation and I would recommend it to everyone as an excellent way... More

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
