The Banff Gondola is located at the base of Sulphur Mountain at the end of Mountain Avenue in Banff, Alberta in the heart of the Canadian Rockies. Discover sweeping scenes of six mountain ranges, the Bow Valley and the charming town of Banff from the Sulphur Mountain summit. Once you're at the top, begin your adventure by strolling the boardwalk to the Cosmic Ray Station and Sanson's Peak and learn about Canada's first national park. Then, head inside to explore the world-class mountaintop discovery centre. Fuel up on grab-and-go fare at Castle Mountain Coffee or enjoy an elegant meal at the award-winning Sky Bistro. Exceptional service and jaw-dropping vistas are hallmarks of all summit dining experiences. Summer nights are equally stellar on Sulphur. Think nightly live music, rooftop patio sips, and dazzling sunsets. Pets are welcome and encouraged to explore all trails and outdoor areas of the Banff Gondola, however due to the safety and comfort of all our guests, pets are not permitted within the gondola cabins or summit building. Service animals are welcome in all areas of the Banff Gondola when accompanied by their owners. No camping or overnight parking allowed.

The Ride is about 10 minutes and we had to wait a bit to go either way. I feel it is a great option when travelling with a smaller kids as they are free up until they are 5. The Hike at the top is very easy because it is an boardwalk and has some nice information about the surrounding area as well as amazing views.



$77 round trip, there is no free ride down, it is half the price from top to bottom (no one way ticket from bottom to top). So many people that actually do that! We walked up (medium speed, 1 h 40 min, 680 m elevation) and down. Saw many juniper plants and some kind of little orchids. Stunning view from the top, especially with changing weather conditions.
