Helicopters are superior to planes in almost every way: vertical takeoff and landing, ability to manoeuvre in any direction, and more likely to deposit Green Day outside your high school because they heard there was "a pretty cool prom goin' down." Let your dreams soar with this Groupon.

The helicopter sails over Kananaskis Country with views of Barrier Lake, the Three Sisters peaks, the Bow River, and Mt. Yamnuska.

Kananaskis Heli Tours has a second base, too, located near Lake Louise, Banff National Park, and Columbia Icefield.
Rockies Heli Tours Canada Inc.
Blades humming, the helicopter from Rockies Heli Tours Icefield rises up from the heliport and soars away over the valley, crossing skies hung between tall mountain peaks. Rising to 9,500 feet, trips take tour-goers over the Cline Pass to breathtaking views of six glaciers, a 900-foot waterfall, and mountain lakes. Passengers watch all of these breathtaking panoramas 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 a wilderness walk through an old growth forest that leads up to Twin Falls before flying away again.
I would not hesitate to tell you that if you want a really unique view of the Canadian Rockies you must include a helicopter tour with Icefield Heli Tnsbailey, 8/11/11
