Go Sky High on the Banff Gondola
Want an unbeatable view that treats you to breathtaking views of the Bow Valley, as well as six mountain ranges, and world-class dining? The Banff Gondola is one of Banff’s must experience activities and allows you to travel to the very top of Sulphur Mountain, 7,486 ft above sea level. The interpretative centre is full of knowledge about the mountain, as well as the town of Banff and the Rockies themselves. For those wanting to go the adventurous route, there are hiking paths up Sulphur that would allow you to ride the gondola, though it’s worth noting that this hike is quite challenging and is probably best for experienced trekkers.
Atop the mountain, you’ll find the Sky Bistro which is home to delectable food and drinks and is the perfect way to relax and unwind in comfort while dining. With lunch and dinner packages available, it’s easy to plan the perfect day in the Rockies!
Conquer the Kicking Horse River
Located just 90 minutes away from Banff in Golden, BC, the Kicking Horse River is one of North America’s most majestic rivers and is home to some of the best white water rapids you’ll find anywhere. Banff Adventures is proud to partner with our sister company, Hydra River Guides to welcome rafters of all experience levels to this wonderful piece of the Canadian Rockies and to show you a good time that you’ll remember forever! Perfect for the whole family, rafting is an incredible way to see the Rockies like never before.
Check Out Local Breweries
The Rockies are home to more than just magnificent mountains and views! The Bow Valley region is home to multiple breweries, including the Grizzly Paw pub located about 20 minutes away in Canmore.
Explore By Horseback
