Bend Area Helicopter Tours Give Birds Eye View of Central Oregon

Bend Helicopter Tours

Fly Cascades Winter Wonderland Heli Tour

The Central Oregon landscape is something to behold. From the snow-capped peaks to the wild and scenic rivers, the region is filled with picturesque scenes of pure, natural beauty.

And there’s no better way to soak it all in than from above.

“Big Mountain Heli Tours creates experiences. We will bring you to our secret hideaway locations and share our grand vistas with you. We’ll offer you the very best of our high desert playground, giving you memories you’ll relish long into the future.”

Big Mountain Heli Tours now offers half-hour or one-hour helicopter tours designed to “provide access to our playground to everyone, regardless of time or physical ability.”

Owner Patric Douglas says he realizes not everyone is able to hike up South Sister, Broken Top or Smith Rock’s Misery Ridge – but they’d sure like to be able to enjoy the views from the lofty peaks. Big Mountain turns an all-day adventure into a quick little outing that leaves guests breathless for entirely different reasons.

They like to say “you don’t buy a seat, you buy a helicopter.” What that means is you’re not heading up for some cookie-cutter, stale and boring tour from a robot sitting in the pilot’s seat. It means you get to direct the tour to fit your desires. Want to spend the whole time soaring over the river below? Cool. Want to get up close and personal to South Sister and Mt. Bachelor? Done.

They offer a handful of set tours, but once you’re in the air the agenda is flexible.

And thanks to the partnership Big Mountain has with Sun Country Tours, they’re able to offer a special helicopter tour/rafting combo package that includes a trip down the Big Eddy Thriller.

Looking for an extended helicopter experience paired with more Central Oregon adventures? Big Mountain has a selection of multi-day tours offerings as well. Enjoy a luxury 3-day helicopter retreat and horseback ride at the glamping haven of Ranch of the Canyons near Smith Rock State Park. There’s also a fly fishing and horseback tour, winery tour and an adrenaline-pumping heli sky diving adventure available.

The tours originate at both the Bend Airport and the Sunriver Airport.
