Alpine Helicopters – Canmore Base
- Guided Tours
- Sightseeing and Scenic Drives
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 which is at the base of the world famous Three Sisters Peaks and 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 little bit of history. But mostly you’ll be grinning ear to ear!
Mount Assiniboine Glacier Tour
This sensational flight incorporates all the sights of the previous tours as well as transporting you to the “Matterhorn of the Canadian Rockies” which rises majestically to 3,611 meters along the Great Divide. The surrounding glaciers and icefalls will astound you and capture your imagination.
Three Sisters Peaks Tour
This will be the most action packed 12 minutes of your life. Your adventure will take you past the Three Sisters Peaks as you spectacularly escape to the Spray Valley. You will see the magnificent Goat Range where you will observe the radiant aqua blue/green colors of the Spray Lakes.
Marvel Pass Tour
Located on the southwest border of Banff National Park, Marvel Pass has long been a favorite spot for that special private moment. Flying south from Canmore you will pass the Three Sisters, over the Spray Reservoir and the high ridges to Marvel Lake and the famous Mount Assiniboine.
Royal Canadian Tour
The Royal Canadian is an extension of the Three Sisters Peaks Tour. Your journey will take you to new heights through the Goat Range Pass and along the Sundance Range of Banff National Park where you will see mountain peaks, alpine meadows, and pristine lakes.
