My girl and I love touring around and trying out new adventures and seeking new thrills. Since we enjoy hiking, trekking and the outdoors - what better way to experience a true alpine experience! Since Revelstoke is so special to us, I thought to treat her to one of our bucket list items and go marvel at the beauty this awesome place has to offer. We were greeted by our pilot Eric who was very professional, knowledgeable and knew the area very well. He showed us glaciers, pristine landscape and beautiful scenery. Our flight was very smooth, full of amazement and it gave us such appreciation of Canada and B.C. This being one of many tour groups across Canada I’ve taken as a Former Concierge for a luxury hotel brand- I comfortably rate Glacier Helicopters as one of the top of all time. Eric was very skilled, welcoming and showed us all the gems in the area. My girl was beyond happy and completely elated at this perfect experience! If you love nature, the outdoors and want a true alpine experience do yourself a favour and visit Glacier Helicopters- you will be thoroughly impressed! 🚁🇨🇦🏔❄️🏆

We stopped by on a whim after seeing the sign for rides. We were myself, my daughter and grand daughter who had snuck away for a two night adventure well over due. I went in and looked at the trips offered and knew we could not afford such a treat for all three of us. The lady behind the counter, sorry I am terrible with remembering names was the nicest person I have met in a long awhile. We decided we couldn't swing it as it was out of our budget and she said my 4 year old grand daughter could ride for free!!! Well what a treat we went and saw the dam and rode over the snowy mountains, a once in a life time experience for my little family!!!! It was an unbelievable experience for us and we talked about it all day, for sure a highlight of the trip. Once we got back the lady even gave my grand daughter a tee shirt as a memento, she wore it all the next day. Needless to say, the ride and the lady made our whole day. Thanks for the wonderful experience that we will remember forever and the kindness of a stranger who touched our hearts. You guys are the best!!!!

We finally got to go up in the helicopter on our 4th attempt. The weather had been very cloudy. It was great. A very smooth take off and landing in the glacier. It was great to see from the air. We were only able to do Franz Josef glacier. Highly recommend.

$225 with fees for a helidrop to Mt Cartier. Approximately an 8-10 min ride. It's difficult to relate how much safer I felt in a helicopter than a 747, but. Simon was not only our email contact point, but the pilot. They have 2 helicopters, a blue one for sightseeing, and the orange one with bike racks. UNPARALLELED views of Lake Revelstoke and the Columbia River which make for fantastic pics and videos. They let you take whatever you want. We had to do 3-4 cycles near the subpeak in order to dip through dense clouds that can creep over the Ridgeline. The landing was abrupt but soft. They fully debrief you on the bike rack and belongings disembarment procedure, and don't overcomplicate things. They show you a 5 min video before take off and everyone is really calm. Would do it again in a heartbeat

Thank you for providing your feedback - we're very glad that you had such a positive experience and enjoyed the ride down Mt. Cartier. The weather can change quickly in the mountains but safety is always our first priority and so it is fortunate that the clouds held off long enough that day for us to complete the drop. Thanks again for flying with us!
