We were blessed with the weather so opted for the 30 minute flight to the glacier and enjoyed every minute. Each passenger is guaranteed a window seat which is so much better than other flights when someone is stuck in the middle with impaired views. They also seemed to clean windows after each flight which was a nice touch. Flight... More

After thanking the pilot for the flight with a light tap on the shoulder and a thumbs up, he "shoed me away". I think the pilot was green as he had to concentrate so badly at the controls and he was just on the ground with the blades turning. When we were in flight I thought he was a little... More

We took the 30 minute flight to Mount Assiniboine and the glacier. Wow. Our pilot Pete, swooped what felt like only 100 feet above it, then banked and dropped along the leading edge. Felt like you could reach out and touch it. Moving between the valleys through some passes felt like we where just clearing them. Of course it was... More

We were travelling from Calgary to field and wanted to take in as much as we could on a time budget. Since my wife had never been in a helicopter I thought a short tour over the Rockies would be great. I booked by phone and that procedure was handled promptly and very professional. Upon arrival at a very nice... More

We love Alpine Helicopters. We know them well from living in Canmore 15+ years, having watch them countless times take sightseers on their adventures and the numerous alpine rescues they do. The staff take great pride in their work, while taking the time to talk to families and especially kids about the world of helicopters, and life as a pilot/ground... More

The ride was beautiful. Did it with 3 cousins... a girls trip away. Quite pricey... but you know that commercial??? It was definitely 'priceless'... Once in a lifetime experience for us... We did the 30 minute ride out over the Glacier and 3 sisters... there were moments when we were all in tears... it was overwhelmingly beautiful.

Whilst on a motorbike tour of British Columbia, we visited Banff. My wife and I have taken many helicopter tours in various parts of the world, this 30 minute trip over the Rockies is definitely up there with the best. The pilot Paul and the ground crew were very pleasant, informative and efficient, the panoramas were amazing, the proximity of... More

We visited one evening to see was it possible to book at trip but as it was late I guess flights were finished for the day. We were accommodated for the following morning and went on the 12 minute trip. The pilot and staff were friendly and helpful. It is well worth the money.
