Rockies Heli Canada's Kananaskis Base, located between Calgary and Canmore,...

Rockies Heli Canada's Kananaskis Base, located between Calgary and Canmore, offers helicopter tours for those wanting an epic view of the Rocky Mountains and easy access to the iconic sights of Banff National Park, Lake Louise, Moraine Lake, and deep into the backcountry from a super convenient location. Our experienced pilots will whisk you from the flatland into the amazing rise of the Rocky Mountain peaks to experience unbelievable views, all packed in to a tour as short as only (the most incredible) 20 minutes of your life. If you’re interested in something even more unique, why not stop for a hike, a mountain top picnic, or bring a special someone to enjoy a private romantic tour you’ll never forget. Whether you're coming from Calgary, staying in Banff, Canmore, or Lake Louise, you’re just a few minutes away from the heli-adventure of a lifetime. Crossing off your bucket list has never been so easy!

On our Rocky Mountaineer train trip through the Rockies, the views were fantastic, the hosts were totally entertaining and the service was first class. The gondola ride gave us a great view of Banff but the helicopter ride was a complete waste of time. We were in the air for 10 minutes and we looked down at flat country and... More

Hello Ceedee 1942, we thank you for your message and its with great disappointment that we got your comment. The Summit Tour that is offered by your first class operator is one that showcases a taste of the Rockies Only as a free inclusion into your package. Yes the tour is only 12 minutes but our team puts in the... More

Great helicopter tour of Kananaskis and Bow Valleys, Kananaskis River, Barrier Lake, Mount McGilivrary, Nakiska Ski Resort, Ribbon Creek, Ribbon Falls, Three Sisters, Exshaw and Yamnuska with a mountain top hike and hot chocolate before returning to the base. The ground staff, and our pilot, were welcoming and very pleasant and professional.

We visited Canada for our 20 year anniversary and decided to book the Love in the Rockies package. This excursion was worth every penny. I cannot remember our pilot's name but I will post a pic of him. He was knowledgable of the area and made us feel comfortable during our flight. We made a stop along a riverbank for... More

If you have never been on a helicopter, then fine, it is a helicopter ride. But if you expected as I did (as part of the Rocky Mountaineer tour) that we would get a helicopter ride over the Rockies, then this is not worth it. I have done helicopter tours before in Alaska and South America where the sights are... More

Hello Craig, We're sorry you did not get what you expected, however, to blame us as the supplier and give us a low rating for delivering as promised is harsh. We can only offer you what was asked of us. Your tour company, one of the best in the world, chose to give you a taste of the rockies with... More

Great service, not pushy on the sales of the photographs they take of you in front of the helicopters. Comfortable waiting area with coffee, tea and cookies while waiting for your chopper ride. Staff was helpful in buckling everyone in as well as adjusting the headsets. The quality of the recording describing the sights while on the ride could be... More

Had the opportunity to do a quick tour of the Canadian Rockies by helicopter. It was AMAZING pretty much sums it up. Wonderful people, impeccable safety record. My tour was very quick due to time restraints but they have an extensive variety of tours from hell skiing to mountain top weddings. Check out their website: rockiesheli.com.

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.
