A once in a lifetime experience to fly over mountain peaks, alpine meadows, pristine lakes and to the “Matterhorn of the Canadian Rockies”.  A helicopter sightseeing flight will leave you breathless.

Located 30 minutes from the town of Banff in nearby Canmore, these sightseeing flights take in the breathtaking views of the Rocky Mountains and unparalleled views of Banff National Park.

Choose from three sightseeing flights:

12 Minutes  – 3 Sisters Peak Tour ($150pp)

An excellent tour for the first-time flyer in the Canadian Rockies, and the most action packed 12 minutes of your life! Your adventure will take you past the Three Sisters Peaks as you spectacularly escape to the Spray Valley. You will see the magnificent Goat Range where you will observe the radiant aqua blue/green colors of the Spray Lakes. Your return flight will provide views of the Bow River as it meanders back towards the Town of Canmore.

25 Minutes – Royal Canadian Tour ($275pp)

An extension of the Three Sisters Peaks Tour, your journey will take you to new heights through the Goat Range Pass and along the Sundance Range of Banff National Park where you will see mountain peaks, alpine meadows and pristine lakes. An extraordinary adventure not to be missed!

30 Minutes – Mt Assiniboine Glacier Tour ($330pp)

This sensational flight incorporates all the sights of the previous flights as well as transporting you to the “Matterhorn of the Canadian Rockies”, which rises majestically to 3,611 meters (11,870 feet) along the Great Divide. The surrounding glaciers and icefalls will astound you and capture your imagination where you will get up close and personal with the Gloria Glacier as it tumbles off of Mount Assiniboine. This is an experience you will not forget!

Looking for a private helicopter flight for two, for that special moment? Take a 30 minute sightseeing flight before setting down at Marvel Lake at 7,200 feet for 15 minutes. This spectacular location offers breathtaking vistas which are perfect for marriage proposals.
