About Rockies Heli Canada
Rockies Heli Canada's Icefield Base on Abraham Lake, located between Lake Louise and Jasper, 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 Cline River on Lake Abraham into the amazing Rocky Mountain peaks to experience unbelievable views, all packed in to a tour as short as only (the most incredible 6-Glacier Tour) 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 short drive away from the heli-adventure of a lifetime. Crossing off your bucket list has never been so easy!

We had such a fun, exhilarating time with the crew of Rockies Heli. Fantastic flight over the Rockies and a short hike for some more beautiful scenic landscape. Would highly recommend!

Rockies Heli & Ralph; Where Do I begin!? Firstly. Thank you for everything!! From the moment we stepped in the door, Ralph greeted us and made us feel at home! I started to rib him, and he gave it back to me just as good. We hadn’t even left the ground, and I was having such a great time hanging out with him! We booked a .3 flight for Epic Wedding photos, and believe me, this entire experience was nothing short of EPIC!! Sue helped me get into my gown, while Ralph unwrapped my flowers and helped my husband with everything he needed! Everyone here is so kind and so professional! The entire experience was just unbelievable! We loaded into the helicopter and WOW! Those views! Ralph Is a fantastic pilot! We took selfies flying, shot the bull and had so many laughs! We were literally on top of the World!! (Well, 10,000 feet!) Upon landing on the mountain, the snow was 2 feet deep! Ralph was more then happy to stomp out the paths first, so it was easier to hike in my wedding dress! He held flowers, coats and everything in-between! All morning Ralph ensured I was warm and he took great care of us! When we landed back at the heli pad, they had a warm fire going and brought us fresh Bread that Sue made! The bread was knotted, and it was meant to symbolize tying the Knot! It was the sweetest thing! Thank you Rockies Heli and Ralph for the most amazing start to our Wedding Day!! I can’t wait for the summer to go back and fly again!

My husband and I took the 20 minute flight plus hike package. Are we ever glad we did. My only regret is that we didn't take the 55 minute flight! Check in was quick and smooth, safety precautions were explained to us, photo op in front of the beautiful Michelle (the red helicopter) and then we were ready for take off. Our pilot, Mark, was informative and fun. Flight was unbelievably gorgeous. We set down in the middle of nowhere and Mark guided us through the forest and we ended up at a clearing with a beautiful waterfall. Mark even got me revved up enough to conquer my fear of heights for an incredible photo op sitting on an outward leaning rock by the waterfall. I'm so glad I did it because this is my favourite pic of our trip. We will definitely do this again the next time we come out west. Maybe the 55 minute one...I don't think it will take much to convince my husband. Thank you heli team. We throughly enjoyed it.

The tour was amazing. The pilot was a very good guide. Also he told about all he’s doing with the helicopter and you don’t get unprepared. The view is breathtaking. The detour from our way to Jasper was the best experience we had on our vacation. Thank you guys.

I did the six Glacier tour which took 20 mins. I can check off “chopper ride” from my bucket list, but I’m HOOKED! I will be going up again in the future, next being the one hour trip. Both pilots are great guys! Mark was skilled, informative and chill. Don’t hesitate to take a flight, you will be in good hands! The views are breathtaking- and a fabulous way to “reset” from our hectic, everyday lives.
