The hour helicopter ride included beautiful views of mountains, glaciers, lakes, rivers, and towns in the area west and south of Glacier National Park - all described and named for you by your pilot. Ramsay did a fantastic job letting us know what we were looking at and keeping us safe on our flight. The entire process was very organized, which was greatly appreciated. Read closely on the website where the tour will be taking you- they do not go into the very busy park areas like Logan Pass or Many Glacier. You can see the Canadian Rockies in the distance and Lake McDonald in different portions of the flight. It was a beautiful experience.

We took at trip with Glacier Aviation Services to celebrate a milestone birthday on May 5! It was fantastic and has created life-long memories for us. We ended up taking the trip a day earlier than planned. The pilot was very pro-active in checking the weather for the week and finding the best possible flying conditions for us. We had a wonderful smooth ride and have come back with some incredible photos! The pilot was very knowledgeable about the area and quickly pointed out the various lakes, mountains, roads, and great hiking and fishing spots. I highly recommend Glacier Aviation Services if you are looking for a memorable experience>

What a beautiful adventure. Our tour over Glacier National Park was exquisite. The half hour flight was definitely worth the money, we definitely will be back to go on the hour flight.
Experiencing the clear blue alpine lakes and snow covered peaks are some of my favorite views, seeing them speckle the landscape was a life long dream.
I recommend booking a flight through Glacier Aviation Services

Our family of 4 did an hour-long helicopter flight to Glacier National Park that we'd visited by car 2 days earlier. The flight was a surprise experience for our teenage kids and made our first trip to Whitefish one that won't be forgotten. Although the weather was a little cloudy the morning flight was smooth and the scenery was amazing. The helicopter is a tight squeeze for 4 passengers so it's worth avoiding bulky clothing. Thanks to the clear canopy it's possible to take good photos of the amazing mountain scenery. Our pilot Jim was friendly, professional and knowledgeable and communication with Gary via email and texts to arrange the flight was brilliant. Worth the price and highly recommended!

This was such a great experience for our honeymoon!! The guys were great and even gave my husband and I a bottle of wine as a honeymoon gift. The pilot gave us an amazing tour (I believe his name was Scott). He was great at pointing out the peaks, lakes, etc., and he even gave us great ideas for places to go while we’re in Whitefish! Definitely worth it and it’s something we’ll never forget.

Every aspect of our flight was great, from ease of booking to our final landing. Seeing this area from the air was like nothing else, and the highlight of our trip to the Glacier area. The crew was knowledgeable and friendly, we would highly recommend this company as we have used others in years past, and this crew exceeded our expectation.

Our flight was gorgeous. The day we flew was slightly breezy, but our pilot navigated our tour to make it a very smooth flight. We saw so many untouched nooks and crannies of the mountains and lakes. Our pilot was very knowledgeable about the area and was easy to chat with. We highly recommend Glacier Aviation!

Came all the way to Glacier and couldn't really go see the glaciers due to parts of the park being closed. Decided to splurge a bit and hire a helicopter to go see the park by air. No regrets. This company was great. Met us on time, provided a safe flight, created a smooth flight on a potentially bumpy day, and even changed the day to accommodate due to upcoming bad weather. Best birthday present ever! Thank you for a great flight!

Bring good quality cameras or go pro because the scenery will blow your mind. Never in my life would I have thought that what I was about to experience was even real. The flight was amazing smooth and extremely informative. I would definitely recommend doing the hour flight because it goes by do fast and its a once in a lifetime experience.

What an awesome way to see Glacier National Park, and because of the altitude you see much more off in the distance. Our pilot/guide (Gary) did a fantastic job of pointing out different places as we went by; at times rotating or circling so back seat passengers got the full view as well. I just don't think there is a better way you could see the numerous glaciers you get up close to with this tour!! We did the 1 hour tour which covered about a 100 mile path. Imagine seeing all that we saw of the park, and some surrounding areas, in just 1 hour. A helicopter ride is one thing, this is so much more. Can you tell Gary's a fun pilot to ride with :)
