Helicopter Flights in Banff

The Alberta mountain ranges of the Canadian Rockies are some of the tallest in North America and include the famous Mount Assiniboine, also known as the “Matterhorn of the Rockies”, and Banff’s highest peak Mt. Forbes, which stands at an impressive 11,850 feet (3,612 metres). The Canadian Rockies cover an area of roughly 180,000 sq km (69,000 sq mi), stretching as far as you can see as you soar high above the tallest peaks on our of our helicopter flights.


What to expect

Banff Adventures offers five different helicopter tours, with various activities such as hiking and sightseeing stopovers included with some of our packages. You’ll be able to learn more about the Canadian Rockies from the sky and observe firsthand how erosion has shaped the mountain ranges over time. These tours are a photographer's delight, and also perfect for romantic getaways to the top of the world.

What to Expect

  1. Typically how long are your helicopter tours?
    Our helicopter tours run from 12 minutes to as long as 2.5 hours, depending on the distance and stopover activities involved.
  2. How many people can I book for a helicopter tour?
    Each helicopter can hold up to five people at a time. Larger groups would involve more than one helicopter. Our Marvel Pass tour is a private tour designed for two people.
  3. For the helicopter and hiking excursions, what type of clothing and footwear should I bring?
    We recommend wearing clothing that suits the weather, along with unexpected weather changes that may occur. Summer months typically call for comfortable walking shoes and a light windbreaker for the breeze at the mountain summit, as well as some comfortable layers for warmth.
  4. Can you still see the view with cloudy and rainy weather?
    Definitely! While cloud cover and rain may obstruct the views further away, most days you will still be able to see for some distance from the mountain summit.
