Each vacation we try to do at least one thing that is out of our comfort zone: this year it was the helicopter ride. And what a thrill! The staff is very professional, and our pilot was exceptional. The sights were fantastic, and the little comments that the pilot added made it that much better. A definite re-do; and next... More

This is a not miss event. The flight crew as so professional and safety of utmost importance. the views of the lakes were breathtaking. the 30 minute tour was just right. I'm afraid of heights and did just fine. Only complaint was the lobby. We walked in and were not directed where to sign up. Staff stood around doing nothing... More

We were made very welcome on arrival and were taken into the safety room where we were given a briefing before going out to the helicopter. Craig, our pilot was most informative on the mountain ranges we flew over and the scenery below. He happily answered any of our questions. The Glory Glacier was stunning as well as the beautiful...

This is a MUST DO! We did a private tour as two couples and had the most memorable day! Being up close flying around the mountains felt as if I was seeing them for the first time despite living here in town. Our pilot Leslie was PHENOMENAL. She was extremely personable and knowledgable. She gave an amazing tour telling us... More

Today was my first helicopter ride and although the shorter 12 minute trip, I really enjoyed the experience. The team made sure everyone was safe and understood the safety protocols. Leslie was our pilot and she explained the areas and features were flying over. The peaks, the three sisters were stunning to see from a very different perspective. Many thanks... More

Though it last only 12 minutes it is packed with so many photo ops and such a smooth ride from the talented pilot who dips in around Three Sisters Peaks and zooms over the Bow River and Spray Valley. You are securely bucked in and fitted with a headset and speaker to communicate with pilot and others on board (usually... More

My adult daughter and I took the 30 minute Mt. Assiniboine glacier tour. It was amazing. The company seems to really appreciate the customer experience. They treat you well, everyone is friendly and focused on your safety. But more importantly, they do not pack you into the helicopter like sardines! Our helicopter could have transported 6 or 7 passengers, but... More

What an amazing experience! Booked the Royal Canadian Tour (about 25 minutes long) with my partner and a few family members, and every one of us absolutely loved it! Got some breathtaking views of the mountain area surrounding Canmore, and the nearby glaciers. The staff were very friendly, and incredibly knowledgeable about the entire area, which made our experience that... More
