Visit to see the awe inspiring magnitude of the event and the eery “ghost trees.” Read more about it from National Geographic here, from the Madison Valley Historical Society here, and get directions from the USFS here.

Hard to know what to write here without seeming too biased, but our owners built this course because it would be a one-of-a-kind highlight opportunity for any Yellowstone vacation! So – you don’t want to miss experiencing our world class zipline adventure course.

This was a last minute surprise helicopter tour for my wife and family. Our bus tour through Yellowstone National Park was amazing but the family was totally thrilled to do a surprise sunset mountain helicopter flight on the same day. Incredible helicopter tour staff helped us every step of the way, from booking online to the actual flight. This will be a memory of our visit to Yellowstone we keep forever. Thanks!

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!

A wonderful Yellowstone experience. We booked our tour from Australia and love the tour from start to finish. The ride over Bald Mountain itself was spectacular. Our pilot Marc and his ground crew were very knowledgeable and answered all our questions. This was a tour we will not forget, it added to our Yellowstone experience from a very professional company!

Wow! We flew over Bald Mountain, lakes and wild rivers all from a bird’s eye view. A visit to Yellowstone National Park takes on a different view from up here. We took the early morning flight when the sun was just coming up. The experience of a helicopter ride is worth the ticket price. Very professional company, will fly again!

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!

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!

As a tour leader for China Tours this was my first time experiencing a Yellowstone helicopter ride and the pilot and helicopter experience was first rate, knowledgeable and friendly staff make flying in a helicopter near Yellowstone a must do experience. There are a lot of tour options to see Yellowstone National Park, this was recommended by another tour leader and I can’t recommend it enough to others!

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!

Our trip to Yellowstone National Park this year didn’t initially include a helicopter tour for our entire family but we are SO glad we did! This tour was fantastic and inexpensive, possibly the best ‘tourist experience’ we’ve had! We had a fantastic pilot, Marc, who took the tour to the next level. Would recommend this tour to anyone!

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.
