COVID-19 UPDATE: Face masks are required during the onboarding process, safety training and in flight. 

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:

Three Sisters Peaks Tour – 25 minutes ($280 pp)

An excellent tour for the first-time flyer in the Canadian Rockies, and the most action packed 25 minutes of your life! Your adventure will take you between the Three Sisters Peaks, Hope, Charity and Faith as you spectacularly escape to the Spray Valley.  Along the way, you will see the magnificent Goat Ranges where you can observe the radiant aqua-turquoise colours of the Spray Lakes and rugged peaks of the Rockies.  Your return flight will provide views of Wind Ridge and the Bow River as it meanders back towards the town of Canmore.

Mt Assiniboine & Glaciers Tour – 35 minutes ($380 pp)

An extension of the Three Sisters Peaks Tour, this sensational flight incorporates all the sights of the previous flight 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!

Continental Divide Tour – 45 minutes ($480 pp)

The Continental Divide Tour is not only an extension of the 3 Sisters and Mt Assiniboine tours, it takes you deeper into the continental divide in the south of Banff National Park. You will see the divide peaks in the Sundance and Goat ranges and the alpine meadows and pristine lakes hidden there. The Continental Divide Tour is truly a rocky mountain experience not to be missed.

 

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.
