Nothing like seeing Glacier National Park from the air! Glacier Heli Tours - The flight is a breathtaking view over a million acre geologic park, of which only a fraction of its awesome terrain and beauty may be seen by road or trail. Our heli tours are also a special opportunity for elderly and handicapped tourists, who are not physically able to hike the trails; and so very little of the Park is seen from the road.

Montana's Glacier National Park is fast becoming a much desired destination for many tourists. We invite you to consider Glacier Heli Tours, offered by Minuteman Aviation, Inc., as part of your vacation.

Glacier National Park Glacier National Park is one of the areas most awesome experiences. This is one you have to visit. Wild Montana really comes alive here, with Grizzly bears, Moose and Mountain Goats being common sights. There are abundant hiking trails, a visitors center a top of the summit, and plenty to see. Be sure to bring the camera on this one!

The West Glacier entrance is only 45 minutes away from Whitefish, Montana.
