My husband and I just returned from a seven night stay in Whitefish, MT. We hiked, biked and drove for 5 days when we realized that we really only scratched the surface of what Glacier National Park has to offer. We took a one hour heli tour that took in sights over the entire park including the Many Glacier and... More

For the time I have spent in Glacier and for all the pictures you can possibly see, nothing will compare to the 120 mph helicopter views. Its breathtaking. You will see dozens of lakes, glaciers, beautiful peaks, unique resorts and in our particular case we saw two mountain goats that our pilot did an extra fly-by for our photo-taking pleasure....

You have no appreciation for the size and enormity of Glacier National Park until you see it by helicopter. This will go down as one of the "Wow, I'm sure glad I splurged and did this trip." You won't regret it.

This was just an awesome flight. You get to fly up close and personal with Glacier National park. Excellent pilot who pointed out all the lakes and mountains by name and even flew over the parts of the park in Alberta. Well worth the money for a trip of the life time!

Well, we were to do the full hour tour, but because of the dense clouds over the continental divide got restricted to half an hour. It just went so quickly. You will really appreciate the beauty of the Park on the Heli tour. You see the glaciers up, close and personal. You fly past the frozen lakes, the snow capped... More

Outstanding! Perfect weather. Do this last. After doing this, the other activities just didn't compare.

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
