This helicopter tour is as exhilarating as it is fun and memorable!

Choose from two exciting helicopter tours over Edmonton:

  • Edmonton City Helicopter Tour (30 minutes)
    Within a minute from departure you’re over Capital Raceway, on route to the North Saskatchewan River. You’ll follow the winding river along the many golf courses to Historic Fort Edmonton Park, Legistlature Grounds, Hotel Macdonald, Muttart Conservatory, Commonwealth Stadium, West Edmonton Mall and the new impressive Rogers Arena!

  • Edmonton City and River Valley Helicopter Tour (40 minutes)
    After taking in the highlights of Edmonton’s downtown core (city tour route), you’ll fly west along the North Saskatchewan River to get up close and personal with the River Valley itself. You’ll never forget landing on a sand bar in the middle of the North Saskatchewan River and then gently climbing as the glistening water disappears below. This is the perfect setting for an early morning or sunset flight in any season!
