Helicopter Tours in Jasper, Canada
There is no more spectacular way to see Canada’s Rockies than on a helicopter tour
Jasper, Canada sits just outside of the famed party paradise of Banff. This National Park spans 10,878km across spectacular Rocky Mountain peaks, glaciers, and lakes that would take an entire lifetime to explore. That is, unless of course you take one of Jasper’s many well priced helicopter tours.
Helicopter trips in Jasper range anywhere from $60 to $6000. And compared with Banff, Jasper is likely to offer up good deals on helicopter
tours for people traveling through the Canadian Rockies on a budget.
Jasper is blessed with natural Rocky Mountain monuments that include Maligne Lake, Miette Hotsprings, and the Columbia Icefields. Although access to most of the many natural wonders in Jasper is possible, each takes a good chunk of time to get to. On a helicopter tour, however, you can see these sites quickly and with a bird’s eye view. Here’s a list of helicopter trips worth exploring in Jasper, Canada:
High Country Helicopters offers a 90-minute trip along the north boundary of Jasper National Park that will no doubt rank as one of the most
memorable experience of your lifetime. You’ll see all of the wonder surrounding Mount Robson, as well as wild animals like bears, mountain lions
and big horn sheep.
Other helicopter trips are quicker (and cheaper), including an 18-minute burn across the Roche Miette, the Athabasca Valley, the Athabasca River and Sand Dunes and the six-minute, $60 flights over the Cline River Canyon, Coral Canyon, and Abraham Lake reservoir.
Jasper is still something of a secret in the Canadian Rockies and is often overlooked as people pass through to the far better known town of Banff. But do yourself a favour and make Jasper a stop on your trip through the Rockies. You’ll avoid big crowds and high prices and with the right helicopter tour, you’ll take home the experience of a lifetime.
