Helicopter flights over Niagara Falls

  • Niagara Falls, Ontario, Canada

  • Bucket List Experience

Last updated: 28 April, 2024

For the full Niagara Falls experience, you really do need to see it from above. Short helicopter flips, usually 15-20 minutes, are worth the price tag, for the spellbinding views. They also take you out over the rolling landscapes of the Niagara Wine Region to Niagara-on-the-Lake, and the Sir Adam Beck Hydroelectric Generating Station.

From Matt: I did this as a teenager and it’s something I’ve never forgotten. I highly recommend it.


Price from: £200
Minimum age: Any
Age suitable: 8+

Getting there & doing it

There’s no minimum age, but realistically it will be too frightening for children under 8 (and even some adults).
