So, what’s it like to fly over Niagara Falls in a helicopter?  Pretty darn cool!  The images (above) and video (below) here were shot in the spring so you can still see some ice in the river and under the Falls.  Also, the springtime is an interesting time to view the area because there are no leaves on the trees to block your sight.

Helicopters have been operating over the Falls for many years and are considered very safe.  Some heroic pilots have been involved in amazing rescue attempts for people who’ve become stranded just before the brink of Niagara.  Most flights last less than 15 minutes and will cost $100-$200 per person.  You can find the helicopter attraction on either side of the border.  I think it adds a special touch to a private tour from Niagara Falls Walking Tours!
