Helicopters are so beloved that they've earned countless nicknames, such as "choppers," "harleys" (short for harley-copters), and "motor-cycles," for the many cycling motors they contain. Be an easy glider with this Groupon.

After lifting off from the Cline River Heliport, the helicopter flies over the valley at altitudes of up to 9,000 feet. Passengers can take in views of the Cline Pass and Cline Glacier, and ogle the 900-foot falls spilling out of Michelle Lakes. The pilot will land in the wilderness and lead passengers on a walk along the banks of a glacier-fed stream to a 40-foot waterfall. Snowshoes will be provided in the rare event of snow.
Kananaskis Heli Tours has a second base, too, located near Lake Louise, Banff National Park, and Columbia Icefield. From here, the helicopter sails over Kananaskis Country with views of Barrier Lake, the Three Sisters peaks, the Bow River, and Mt. Yamnuska. This trip also includes a one-hour stop for walking or snowshoeing in the wilderness. This Groupon is valid at either location.
Rockies Heli Tour Canada
Blades humming, the helicopter from Rockies Heli Tours rises up from the heliport and soars away over the valley, crossing skies hung between tall mountain peaks. Rising to 6,500 ft., it might follow the rushing waters of the Bow River, or head toward Mount Yamnuska, whose stoic face is a popular destination for climbers. Passengers watch all of these breathtaking panorama glide smoothly by underneath during their 20-minute flight, content to let their expert pilot guide them on a leisurely loop before returning to base. Guests with more adventure in mind can also opt to land for a one-hour wilderness stop, taking wilderness walks or snowshoeing through frost-covered forests before flying away again.
