Niagara Grand Helicopter Tour

Enjoy The Majestic Niagara Falls From The Air!

  • Take a 20-minute trip over the majestic Niagara Falls, historical landmarks, and Niagara's famed wine country to see Niagara from the air.
  • See it all in a way unimaginable from the ground. Don't forget your camera!

The Niagara Helicopter Grand tour is National Helicopters' most popular Niagara Falls tour. It's a twenty-minute flight from the Niagara District Airport to Brock's Monument in Queenston, flying over Niagara's world-renowned wine-producing region. The helicopter then heads south along the Niagara River, passing the Sir Adam Beck Hydroelectric Generating Station, the Whirlpool Rapids, the Spanish Aero Car, and the Maid of the Mist below. The journey concludes with a breathtaking aerial view of the American, Bridal Veil, and Canadian Horseshoe Falls. The helicopter will fly over the falls a second time so that passengers on the opposite side of the plane may see them as well. The helicopter then returns to the Niagara District Airport through a circuitous path.
