If you are near Banff, this is a must do trip. Make sure you book the 30 minute trip and you will see the most spectacular glaciers. The shorter trips miss that part although the scenery on the way is breathtaking. It is well worth the cost as it has been, for us, the highlight of our trip to Canada’s west so far.

Hello!

Thank you so much for taking the time to review your recent trip with us. We couldn't agree more - the Assiniboine Glacier is very special and we are so happy you got to experience it.

We hope to see you again soon.

Cheers,


Bailey

I went on my 3rd helicopter ride in mid May as part of a Scenic Tour, staying in Banff. I chose to pay extra to go on a 25 minute ride. The take off site was located about 30 minutes from Banff. I was very impressed that staff made sure that every passenger had their head phones on and seat belt fastened securely.

The scenery was fantastic with views over the snow fields and also the village of Banff. I could pick out the Fairmont Banff from the helicopter.

Well worth the money for the flight!

We took a 30 min flight and very glad we took the longer option even if it was expensive. Views of the mountains and glaciers wonderfull and even saw some wildlife.

The first try, we were told that wind up high was too dangerous to fly. Second time, the weather was beautiful and definitely was worth going up on a helicopter. The Rockies were wonderful. I’ve been on heli before but not a small one which carries only 4.

I very rarely give 5 stars but this was a wonderful experience. Thirty minutes flying over the Rockies with fantastic views. Take a drink of water as it can be a bumpy ride and you may feel queasy, as I did. However I would have got back on in an instant. An experience we will talk about for many years.
