The Best Places to Photograph in Montana
Whether you’ve lived in Montana your whole life or you’re just on a quick trip up here for vacation, you know that our beautiful state has some of the most incredible landscapes in the country. Since our part of the country is so lovely, we get a lot of customers who want to take a ride in a helicopter for aerial photography in Montana. But time is limited! Here are a few of the most beautiful places in the state, which we believe are ideal for capturing a one-of-a-kind photograph:
- Glacier National Park: Perhaps one of Montana’s most popular tourist destinations, this national park lies in the northernmost part of our state along the Canadian border. The mountain and lake scenery along with the opportunity to see a variety of wildlife make it a popular choice for professional aerial photographers and folks just taking a helicopter tour. The Canadian Waterton Lakes National Park lies on the other side of the border and also offers incredible shots to add to your landscape portfolio!
- Lake McDonald: If you’re interested in taking photographs of one of the state’s most beautiful lakes, be sure to ask your pilot to take you over Lake McDonald! Surrounded by towering, snow-capped mountains, Lake McDonald is the largest lake in the national park and is sure to be one of the gems in your portfolio.
- Grinnell Glacier: No trip over Montana would be complete without snapping a few pictures of one of the largest glaciers in Glacier National Park. The massive river of ice is truly a sight to behold for any nature lover.
- Upper Missouri River Breaks National Monument: Head about 250 miles east of Glacier National Park to get more unbeatable snapshots of the state! The landscape is a stark contrast to what you’ll find at the previous destinations and adds a special flair to your Montana scrapbook. The national monument has magnificent rock outcroppings and steep bluffs that make for excellent photos. You’re lucky you’ll be flying in a helicopter because, without many roads, the area is tricky to navigate via car!
When it comes to prices, nobody can beat Rocky Mountain Rotors! We guarantee that our rates for rides up in the friendly skies are some of the best in the country. We rent several different models and sizes of helicopters by the hour. You can rent the smallest vehicle, the Robinson R-22 Beta II, for $350 per hour. This great helicopter offers tremendous unobstructed views of the landscape. However, it only seats two passengers. If you’re traveling with your family or group of friends, we suggest taking a tour in the Bell 429. For $4,440 per hour, this top-of-the-line craft carries up to seven passengers on an unforgettable tour of Montana.
It doesn’t matter if you’re visiting our state, or if you’ve lived here your whole life, you can’t go one more day without taking an aerial tour of any of Montana’s incredible natural wonders. Give us a call today to schedule a helicopter tour to capture amazing aerial photography in Montana!
