Kananaskis Heli Tours

I had the amazing opportunity to go on a helicopter ride with Kananaskis Heli Tours. I had never been on a helicopter before and was kind of nervous, but their staff were fabulous and did an amazing job at getting me all pumped up! We did the Introductory Tour which was six minutes, the perfect length for my first time. The take-off was so smooth...I didn't even really realize that we had left the ground. We went across the Bow River and then over to Mt. Yamnuska; I loved being above the mountains and seeing everything from a "bird's eye view"

Kananaskis Heli Tours have a variety of different packages available, ranging from the six minute Introductory Tour to a 55 minute Ultimate Assiniboine Tour. You can also "build your own" package and add a one hour wilderness stop to any tour over 20 minutes. I think I would like to try the Romance Package where you have a private 20 minute sightseeing tour plus a one hour stop at their romantic wilderness location where you can sit by the water and enjoy champagne and chocolates or go for a snowshoe or hike. (Although I'm thinking the chocolates and champagne is more my style!)

If you are coming to the Canadian Rockies you must check out Kananaskis Heli Tours and everything they have to offer; they are a great company with superb service. Located just a 40 minute drive from Banff, at the Stoney Nakoda Resort and Casino at the junction of the Kananaskis Trail (Hwy 40) & TransCanada Highway (Hwy 1). Check out for more info~
