About this Niagara Falls tour
Begin your experience as the helicopter gently lifts off from its base location. The awe-inspiring views of the Niagara region begin to appear below as you ascend. Have your camera ready to capture some of the best and most breathtaking pictures during your Niagara Falls tour. Starting at the Sir Adam Beck Generating plant and the Niagara Parks Commission School of Horticulture, the tour follows the Niagara River from the Whirlpool area, over the Whirlpool Rapids and the Rainbow Bridge.
The green grass and floral beauty of Queen Victoria Park stretches below as the helicopter passes by the American Falls and the Skylon Tower. As the helicopter reaches Minolta Tower, prepare for a change of direction along the top of Canadian Horseshoe Falls. Experience a colorful natural occurrence as rainbows appear and disappear from all directions due to the sun’s shine on the mist. Then, the helicopter will begin to level off and travel along the route back to base. The heliport is centrally located along the Niagara Parkway, just minutes from the fall.
With thousands of visitors from all around the world each year, this helicopter tour offers individual headsets with taped commentary in different languages. After your experience above the falls, take some time to visit the gift shop featuring exclusive Niagara helicopter collectibles. A gourmet café serving the best hot and cold meals and a photography lab producing personalized, high-quality photos are also available during your experience on site.
