Spring Helicopter Tours in Yellowstone’s Outback

No question about it, spring Yellowstone is a time of excitement. In fact, some of Yellowstone’s most amazing experiences happen  without the large crowds of summer. Book a scenic helicopter tour this spring and enjoy the epic scenery from 10,000 feet as you explore more of the West’s great natural treasures.

In April and May, the bears of Yellowstone come out of hibernation, and with them new cubs. Bison calves are being born on the plains, and bighorn lambs up on the cliffs. Birds pass through on their migration routes; frogs call loudly in ponds. Roads that closed during winter — which is almost all of them — start opening back up, as do four of the park’s 12 campgrounds and most of its lodges. Around April, most of the park’s seasonal employees and volunteers will start getting back into the swing of things.

If you’re bringing your kids to Yellowstone, there’s a strong case to be made that spring is the best time to visit, what with all the frolicking baby animals and shorter lines. Moms and pops, try to work things out with the school schedules and check out the springtime packages geared toward families.

This was one of the most amazing adventures my partner and I have ever been on. The staff at Yellowstone Helicopters from booking to meeting our pilot was great to work with from. We did the $69 helicopter ride and it was well worth it. What a special addition to our Yellowstone Park experience – we will remember this spectacular flight together.

I did the Grizzly 20 minute tour today and had an amazing flight with Kameron! He was knowledgeable about the area and history and was an excellent pilot! It was an amazing experience to see West Yellowstone from the air and I would do it again in a heartbeat! Definitely would recommend family and friends!

We had searched online for quite some time during our Yellowstone vacation planning for a reasonably priced helicopter tour we could do while on our trip out west and I am so glad we found this company. Marc was able to arrange an hour-long flight for us like I wanted for a very fair price and was so easy to work with. His response to my inquiries while planning was much more prompt, thorough, and courteous than other companies I had checked into. When we arrived for our flight, everyone on the team was very professional and welcoming and we ended up having a fabulous tour with our pilot, Justin. It was our first time in a helicopter and he made us feel totally comfortable, explained all the sights, and answered all our questions. He even back-tracked so I could get pictures of the elk we spotted. We saw a herd of bison crossing the river, and it was truly a once-in-a-lifetime kind of view. I highly recommend this company and if I am ever back in West Yellowstone we will be looking forward to flying with them again. Thank you Yellowstone Helicopters for the outstanding experience!! Loved it!

Amazing staff and very accommodating. Must check these guys out if you are in the area! We had a party of four so we were able to take a tandem flight and still see the sights together!

This flight was a birthday present for my wife and I let our two daughters go along. It was a great smooth flight and the got to see an elk herd from overhead. We have been in the area many times but to see Hebgen Lake, Quake Lake along with the mountains from above was very exciting for them. My 20 year old daughter said the view was incredible and then she looked out of the window. I guess the pilot was cute. Thanks to Tadd, the ground person and pilot for making this happen!

Bill Metzger

Worth every penny. Great pilot and beautiful views!

Jessica Miller

Our Yellowstone helicopter tour was easy to book online. Our helicopter pilot made sure everyone was catered to and went the extra mile for our elderly grandmother. Helicopter pilots have an excellent knowledge of the surroundings and talked us through everything and made sure we had a smooth flight. The mountain views are breathtaking – plenty of opportunities for great photos/videos. Would definitely go again, good value for the money!

Travelling through Yellowstone on our camper adventure across the USA. I can’t begin to explain how incredible it is to see the wild and scenic Yellowstone area from a helicopter at 10,000 feet. We did a last minute helicopter tour booking online and flew over a snow capped mountain peak and into a lake below. Best money we have spent on our travels so far, this is a MUST DO tour in Yellowstone!
