Description

Take in all the rugged, wild and majestic splendour of Banff National Park and the Columbia Icefield on this helicopter tour of the best of the Canadian Rockies. Fly from Alberta to British Columbia, across the Great Divide and over the glaciers, lakes and peaks of Canada’s most stunning mountain landscapes.

Make your way through the spectacular scenes of Clearwater County to a helipad nestled at the edge of Banff National Park’s untouched wilderness. Climb aboard a comfortable helicopter, get acquainted with your pilot and take off, gazing down as you veer towards the untamed alpine world to the west.

Soar high above the peaks and valleys below you at an altitude of 12,400 feet (4,000 m), for truly unencumbered panoramas that stretch out as far as the eye can see. Cruise over icy glaciers, emerald-hued lakes and tumbling waterfalls between stretches of rocky ridges and dense evergreen forests, flying above the turquoise waters of Lake Louise and passing over the Great Divide.

Approach the Columbia Icefield and marvel at its incredible expanse. This wonder sprawls out over 325 square miles (125 sq km), making it the largest body of ice in the Rocky Mountains. See miles-long tongues of ice stretching through slow-carved valleys, peer down into frozen crevasses in the blue and white mass and snap photos from your sky-high vantage point before looping over the park to touch back down.
