It was a nice helicopter tour. We had a nice view over the islands and over the Elk waterfalls! 20 minutes is pretty short but what you see is great fun!

MAC was our friendly pilot for a tour of the glacier, Strathcona Park and Della Falls. Pointed out many lakes and hikes. It was relatively clear day - not as much smoke as we’ve had - and the views were incredible. Highly recommend!

What a terrific experience. We had a great time for our first experience in a helicopter. Mack (our pilot) was great and very knowledgeable on all of the areas we flew over. We would recommend this to anyone thinking of giving this a try.
