Summer Update: Our signature “Doors Off” scenic helicopter flights are back. Must be 21 or older to participate. Experience Bend’s most thrilling scenic flights with the doors off today!
Ski season has ended in Bend but our backcountry is still covered in deep, beautiful snowpack. Our Winter Wonderland Helicopter Tour is perfect for Bend visitors and locals who want to experience and explore as much of our magnificent snowcapped Cascade range in the heat summer as possible. The Cascades are a unique part of the Pacific Ocean’s Ring of Fire, the ring of volcanoes and associated mountains around the Pacific Ocean. In fact, all of the eruptions in the contiguous United States over the last 200 years have been from Cascade volcanoes. You’ll be front and center to see the after effects of our last “big one” at Broken Top Mountain 100,000 years ago, revealing the colorful insides of our very own complex stratovolcano and high altitude glacial lake at 10,000 feet.
While Broken Top Mt is our local volcanic star this private and unique helicopter tour will also highlight Mt. Bachelor, one of the largest ski resorts in the U.S. On this tour you’ll swing over the mountain and watch skiers racing down the mountain. The Cascade Range is still active to this day. Mt. St. Helens (which you can see on most flights) to our North remains hot after a devastating and well known eruption in 1980.
At the summit you’ll be treated to an eye candy view of the Cascade Mountain chain stretching from north to south and including Mount Hood, Mount Jefferson, Three Fingered Jack, Mount Washington, North Sister, Middle Sister and South Sister.
Our Winter Wonderland Tours depart from our private heliport in Bend, Oregon. This scenic helicopter tour includes aerial views of the City of Bend, the Old Mill District and the Deschutes River as well as the spectacular snow capped Cascade range with it’s soaring volcanic peaks. The tour is hosted aboard one of our comfortable and air-conditioned helicopters complete with wraparound windows. These aircraft are designed for sightseeing and feature a nearly 180 degree field of view, clear passenger to pilot communications, and complimentary “doors off” flights by request!
You’ll love getting up close to Mt. Bachelor and the Cascades. Breathtaking views are all yours to discover.
