Scenic Flights Summer Outdoor Activities

Everyone wishes they could fly like an eagle. An Alberta aerial tour is the next best thing. Feel the steady hum of the engines as you soar above the Canadian Rockies. Brilliant alpine lakes peek out from between frosted summits. See ancient glaciers and high alpine meadows from a bird’s eye view, by helicopter or fixed wing plane. Hop on a float plane to a secluded fishing lodge and visit a lake where the fish practically jump into your boat. Step back in time when you ride in the back of an open cockpit biplane at the Reynolds-Alberta Museum.
