There is no better way to see this spectacular country than by soaring above it. If you take a helicopter tour in Canmore this summer, prepare to be absolutely amazed!
We all know the Canadian Rockies is a special place. It attracts millions of visitors a year and there is absolutely no end of things to do and see. One of the most unique and thrilling ways you can experience the Rockies is by getting out of them. By which I mean high above them! The mountains have a tendency to make us feel small, insignificant and full of respect. It’s this feeling of awe and inspiration that many visitors are looking for when they visit these great peaks and valleys. Get into a helicopter, and be swept into the troposphere. It will be something you’ll never forget. The professionals at Alpine Helicopter in Canmore really know how to deliver an amazing experience. Take a look at some of their incredible tours that will be sure to take your breath away this summer.
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.
