Visitors can choose from a variety of helicopter tours in Banff that provide breathtaking aerial views of the majestic Rocky Mountains.

These tours offer a unique perspective on the stunning natural beauty of the area, including its rugged peaks, expansive glaciers, and pristine alpine lakes.

Whether you’re looking for a short scenic flight or a more extensive adventure, there are options to suit different preferences and budgets, making it a must-do experience for anyone visiting Banff.

Rockies Heli Canada

Official website

Located about two hours north of Banff, near the stunning Abraham Lake, Rockies Heli offers a variety of helicopter tour packages year-round. Yes, you can even take a helicopter tour in the winter!

Their highly experienced pilots are also incredibly knowledgeable about the area, providing informative commentary throughout the flight so you can learn more about the breathtaking landscapes you’re flying over.

The reason why I think they are the best helicopter tours in Banff is because they are NOT in Banff per say. So way way less crowds. Big bonus is that Abraham Lake is my favorite lake for paddle-boarding and camping. It is a crown land zone so you can basically camp for free there + first come first serve so no need to book a year in advance.

Rockies Heli Canada fly in an area where it is almost just them. They also have different packages for different needs like just short flights or flights with drop off or a combinaison of flight, camping, horseback riding…

They do heli-elopements (or helicopter elopements) or even heli-weddings (helicopter weddings) where you can bring your guests, catering, music, whatever you can think about on top of the mountain to be alone with your partner or with your guests.

One of their most popular services is the surprise proposal. Rockies Heli Canada has partnered with several photographers, including myself, who specialize in surprise proposals, ensuring everyone works together to make your proposal truly unforgettable – everyone is in the loop except for the person being proposed to!

If you are thinking about proposing and a heli-proposal is something you are interested in, it’s best to contact the photographer in advance (feel free to message me, for example). The photographer will guide you through the process and make your dream proposal come true!

Helicopter tours packages

My favorite package they offer includes a landing in a remote area for a hike to a picturesque waterfall, suitable for all skill levels. You can find more details about this package on this link1.

Can you imagine being alone in this place? Psss: This is the perfect proposal spot! Far from the crowds, it offers an unforgettable adventure in a breathtakingly romantic setting. You can even ask for some bubbles, bring a picnic, a musician or even a photographer (wink wink, me!).

Rockies Heli Canada dates are filling up quickly for the summer so don’t hesitate to reach out sooner than later if you are interested!

If you are willing to bring me on a flight to get this special moment captured for you, send me a message or checkout some of my packages here.

Dog friendly helicopter flights

Oh and bonus points: they are dog friendly so your dog can fly with you! You heard me! Dog friendly helicopter flights! And if you don’t want your pup in the helicopter, they have a small dog run where your dog can stay.

Happy flight!
