In Banff

Ride to the top of Sulphur Mountain to experience a bird's eye view of six mountain ranges. The Banff Gondola is located just 5 minutes from the Town of Banff, on the shoulder of Sulphur Mountain, in the heart of the Canadian Rockies. The 360° view from the upper gondola terminal, view-decks and Summit Ridge interpretive boardwalk, is the very best vantage point in the west.

Safely seated in 4 passenger gondola cabins, visitors are transported in 8 minutes to the summit at an elevation of 2,281m (7,486 ft) above sea level. Indoors, the experience is equal parts excitement and exploration, with an interpretive centre and theatre to captivate the child in all of us. It’s also where culinary expectations rise to new heights, with menus that rival the views. Outside, the epic views are truly endless from the rooftop deck or with a stroll along the mountain boardwalk. Top it off with seasonal programs and exciting events for the ultimate mountaintop adventure. Children 5 and under are free.
