14 Aug See Vancouver Via HeliJet
People often seek out high-rise penthouses or towering hilltops in order to enjoy the best possible views of Vancouver and its surrounding scenery. With the majestic Coast Mountain Range, the Pacific Ocean, and a glittering modern metropolis all joining together to create a sight which never fails to impress, it’s little wonder people place so much value on views in this city. Heck, one of its most prestigious dining establishments – the Top of Vancouver Revolving Restaurant – is almost entirely based on meeting that popular demand for idyllic vantage points! But truth be told, as amazing as some of those other views are, there’s actually an even better way to take in the sights of Vancouver: with a helicopter sightseeing adventure from HeliJet!
Starting as low as $149 per person, helicopter tours are not only the perfect way for a tourist to get a bird’s eye view (literally) of the city of Vancouver and its surrounding mountains, they’re also a great way for locals to see their home town from an awe-inspiring new perspective. Helijet offers three distinct adventures, each with its own perks. The cheapest tour, at the aforementioned $149/person (or $499/aircraft) is the False Creek Panorama Tour, which will take passengers on a 10 minute ride from Vancouver Harbour to English Bay via Stanley Park, then back over the city’s downtown area including BC Place Stadium. At 20 minutes in length, the West Coast Spectacular Tour offers more extensive sightseeing opportunities, flying high above West Vancouver all the way to Horseshoe Bay and Howe Sound, swinging around the North Shore Mountains, and ultimately returning to Vancouver by way of Capilano Lake – all for $224/person or $749/aircraft. The most extensive package is the Greater Vancouver Scenic Tour, which lasts a half-hour and costs $299/person or $1099/aircraft. This top-of-the-line helicopter tour provides the best aerial sights that Vancouver has to offer, including views of the Salish Sea and Vancouver Island off in the distance, as well as the mighty North Shore Mountains and the glittering downtown core closer to home.
