Icefield Helicopter Tours
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 9,000 feet and beyond, trips take tour-goers over the surrounding countryside for breathtaking views. Trips from the Icefield base treat passengers to views of glaciers, a waterfall, and mountain lakes, whereas journeys from Kananaskis whip through snowy peaks that include the site of the downhill skiing portion of the 1988 Winter Olympics. Passengers watch all of these breathtaking panoramas glide smoothly by underneath during flights, content to let their expert pilot guide them on a leisurely loop before returning to base. Guests with more adventure or luxury in mind can also opt for extras such as a wilderness walk through an old growth forest or a gourmet picnic amid the natural beauty of the mountains.
