This is an absolute must. I took the 30 minute ride and saw some of the most breath-taking sites I've ever seen. Soaring above snow-capped mountains, glaciers valleys of trees and blue lakes. Pilot was very knowledgeable, pointing out everything we flew past. If you're anywhere near Calgary, definitely worth the drive and the price.

They provided a pick up and drop off service to Banff at no extra cost even though we were the only two needing picked... More

We booked the Mount Assiniboine Glacier tour which is the longest of three offered by Alpine. Tours require a minimum of two passengers. “This sensational flight incorporates all the sights of...

We booked this trip with our daughter and son-in-law and none of us where disappointed. Safety talk first, photo shoot then up and away. The flight was amazing and all my wife could say " was wow this is amazing " and it certainly was flying over mountains,lakes and glaciers - Fantastic experience !!

Day after we arrived Canada, I had this planned on the agenda on the way into Rockies. Unfortunately the weather was clouded over in the morning however the team were great, getting in touch and postponed the flight until later on the day. Great experience and beautiful lakes to be seen! Great staff - can't fault them!

Turned up at Alpine Helicopters as a drop in. They could not have been more accommodating. We were straight into the safety brief and then before we knew it we were in the air! Issac was our pilot and was informative and super polite. Great customer service. I flew with this company just over 6 yrs ago and they were... More

We chose this as an excursion on our Cosmos Tour of The Rockies and what an experience it was. We arrived to free coffee or tea - just help yourself in the small lobby. We were then escorted through into an adjacent room for a very thorough safety talk given by a very polite and jovial young man. Once the... More
