This ride is only 12 minutes but is very scenic over interesting peaks, lakes and where are nance was filmed. They are extremely safety conscious, the pilot is extra friendly, and I sat in the front and got some great shots. The whole experience is well handled and worth doing.

I had the pleasure of having the front seat, because of weight restrictions they accommodated ne at front seat. Breathtaking 20min ride. With courteous staff and discovered lot of good things around the mountains. Pilot was knowledgeable. It was my first helicopter ride and cannot forget the moment. Thanks to the team.

The tour was beautiful. The only thing that would have made it better is if it were a longer flight! This was booked through our Rocky Mountaineer tour so it was a short flight. If you have the option to do a longer one I would recommend it in a heartbeat! The staff was wonderful too!

We were on a small tour of 17 people, 16 flew and the staff were incredibly friendly, a really nice bunch of people. It's a helicopter so there's not a lot of room but you soon forget that when you're heading into the mountains. Great experience

We did the 20 min tour & was extremely disappointed. I was squished in the middle with a pole literally 20 cm in front of my face, couldn't see squat and had to duck down the whole time as my head was hitting the roof, and I'm not even a tall person. The helicopter itself isn't good for viewing out... More

Went on the as part of the heli-horseback package. It's was a brilliant end to the package. By the way the horse riding was awesome. The staff were really lovely and helpful and there was complimentary yes coffee and biscuits. A small detail but appreciated. The flight was breath taking and the pilot was excellent. An amazing experience highly recommended.

This was my first Helicopter ride and I was a bit anxious. Staff was very friendly, reassuring and safely conscious. We had a preflight safety review and staff made sure we had our seat belts and headsets in place properly. The ride was smooth, even tho there was a light wind. The view was incredible over the blue lakes, mountains,... More

If you are contemplating this, just do it. A little expensive but there's no better way to see the rockies and feel just how small you are next to the rocks. Great guys too. We had a good time chatting with the pilot and he was personable and knowledgeable about the area.

I have always dreamed of flying above the mountains and forest! Enjoying every single second! For sure coming back to do the longer tour and reserve the seat beside the pilot! Thank you for making a dream come true!
