From the sensation of lift-off to the excitement of soaring above the turbulent rapids and the cascading waterfall, the all-scenic Niagara Helicopters flightseeing tour provides visitors with a thrilling view of Niagara’s natural and man-made wonders.
For over 60 years, Niagara Helicopters has been leaving people from around the world AWESTRUCK with the highest, most scenic, most exciting sightseeing experience in the Niagara Region – all from the safety and comfort of one of four meticulously maintained state-of-the-art Airbus H130 helicopters. 

These helicopters were specifically designed to enhance the sightseeing experience featuring THREE passenger seats in front with the pilot with floor to ceiling windows and four stadium-style seats in back which are raised a few inches higher than the front seats for optimal viewing regardless of seat position. The 9+ minute tour includes surround-sound on-board commentary in many different languages including English, French, German, Spanish, Japanese, Korean and Mandarin. The operation is well-known for fast, efficient, and friendly service – perfect for individuals, families and groups of all sizes.

Charter services are also available on request. One of their “Signature Experiences” worthy of note is the Helicopter Wine and Dine Tour. After viewing the Falls in all its beauty, guests are whisked off to experience another of the area’s natural gifts – the Niagara Wine Region. This tour flies The Classic Tour over the Falls BUT instead of returning to home base they will land at one of Niagara’s Premier wineries with the actual grape vines surrounding the landing area. Guests are met by the winery personnel and taken on a tour and tasting or a dining experience at one of their fine vineyard cafes.

Visiting Niagara in Winter?

Due to overwhelming demand, in 2022 Niagara Helicopters began offering a view of Niagara Falls that is absolutely “UNIQUE AND MAGICAL”. Throughout the World-Famous Niagara Falls Winter Festival of Lights and beyond, the company’s Classic Tour over Niagara Falls is also available AT NIGHT! The entire city sparkles below as the helicopter gently glides over the Niagara Parkway which is illuminated with over 3 million lights and lighting displays.  The Bridal Veil, American and Canadian Horseshoe Falls are the highlights – lit using 12600 LED lights with 1800 different colour combinations. Other points of interest include the Skylon Tower, Whirlpool State Park, Sir Adam Beck II Generating Station, Rainbow Bridge, and Clifton Hill. In the distance on a clear night, the Toronto and Buffalo City skylines can be seen twinkling on the shorelines of Lake Ontario and Lake Erie respectively.

For those not quite comfortable with flying, the company also provides on-site services such as a gift shop featuring exclusive Niagara Helicopters collectibles, grab-and-go snacks and cold drinks and a state-of-the-art Photography Lab producing personalized high-quality photos and Niagara Posters. There is also a lovely picnic and observation area for those who just enjoy watching the helicopters take off and land.
