Rockies Heli Canada
Blades humming, the helicopter from Rockies Heli Canada rises up from the Kananaskis Base and soars away over the valley, crossing snow-capped mountains, rivers, and lakes. Rising to 9,500 feet, trips take tour-goers over breathtaking panoramas like Barrier Lake, Bow River, and Mt. Yamnuska. Passengers watch all of these views glide smoothly by, before landing for a one-hour wilderness exploration snowshoe. After an exhilarating trek through the forest, guests warm themselves with hot chocolate and Irish cream before flying away again to return to base.
