Sit back and enjoy the ride with Alpine Helicopters, which has been in the business of checking off bucket-list wishes since 1961. Alpine Helicopters offers the most spectacular sightseeing tours in the heart of the Canadian Rocky Mountains. The full-service tourist facility is located at the Canmore Municipal Heliport at the base of the world-famous Three Sisters Peaks, adjacent to Banff National Park. The heli-tours provide you with unparalleled views of the Park. You’ll learn about Alberta’s Rocky Mountain topography and it’s fascinating history…but mostly you’ll be grinning ear to ear!



This sensational flight incorporates all the sights of the previous tour (Three Sisters Peaks, Hope, Charity and Faith as you spectacularly escape to the Spray Valley.  You will see the magnificent Goat Ranges, the aqua-turquoise colours of the Spray Lakes and rugged peaks of the Rockies, Wind Ridge and the Bow River.) 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!
