You’ll encounter some of the oldest homestead farms and scenic backcountry in the USA and fly over ancient Native American winter camp locations. Greater Yellowstone’s location at the convergence of the Great Plains, Great Basin, and Plateau Indian cultures means that many tribes have a traditional connection to the land. For thousands of years before Yellowstone became a national park, it was a place where Indians hunted, fished, gathered plants, quarried obsidian, and used the thermal waters for religious and medicinal purposes.

Testimonials

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!

Mark Crowley

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!

Tammy Tamplin

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!

Nathan Nelson

Took a early morning tour with Jeremy. Great pilot and wonderful experience. Beautiful scenery, wildlife, and fantastic time. Look forward to next time!

Bill Metzger

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!

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!

Matt Hobbs

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!
