Helicopter Tours near Jasper National Park

On the drive to our scenic Mount Robson accommodations, visitors pass through the amazing forests and mountains of the Canadian wilderness. Hiking, biking and skiing are just a few great ways to experience the raw natural beauty of this area. There’s another unique way to see area attractions such as Maligne Lake, Mount Robson and Jasper National Park. Since 1996, High Country Helicopter Tours has been offering helicopter sightseeing flights as well as custom tours. There’s a good range of flights to choose from.

The Rocky Mountain Odyssey is the shortest trip available. Get a bird’s eye view of the Rockies’ eastern slope flight during the 18-minute flight.

Most popular is the half-hour Peaks and Passes flight. The dramatic views of the rugged mountain passes are absolutely awe-inspiring.

The 1-1/2 hour Explore Mount Robson flight is the longest tour. See the canyons, glaciers and deep valleys of Jasper National Park as you’ve never seen them before.

There are other sightseeing tours, all flown by experienced pilots who prioritize the safety of each guest. Click here to see the full list of available tours. Flights are offered year-round. Some packages, such as the heli-tour with hiking trip, occur only during the summer months. Of course, all flights are subject to cancellation due to weather conditions.

High Country Helicopter Tours also offer custom flights for personal or business-related gatherings. Just think of having a helicopter flight for your wedding, anniversary, company retreat or family trip! Combined with a stay at Mountain River Lodge, it would be an unforgettable experience.

Helicopters seat four guests in the Bell Jet Ranger or five guests in the Eurocopter A-Star. Keep in mind that sightseeing tours require a minimum of three guests, but custom tours can be booked for one to four or five guests depending on the helicopter’s capacity. To book a flight, contact the Operations Manager, Hjalmar Tiesenhausen at 1-877-777-4354 (toll free) or 1-780-852-0125 (local in Jasper). You can also learn more at www.hcheli.com.

Note: Due to Federal park regulations, take-offs and landings can’t take place from within Jasper National Park. All of High Country Helicopter Tours flights are conducted just east of the Park.

After a high flying heli-tour adventure, you can relax and unwind at our comfortable Mt. Robson lodging near Jasper National Park.
