Ride to the top of Sulphur Mountain to experience a bird's eye view of six mountain ranges.
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 degree 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.
At the summit. The gondola upper terminal offers restaurant options, a gift shop and a spectacular roof top observation area with interpretive material giving directions and distances to major cities of the world and commemorating the area's designation as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Visit the boardwalk. There are more view-decks on the main level, as well as the start of a 1km long elevated board-walk that leads visitors along Sulphur Mountain's summit ridge to the Cosmic Ray Station National Historic Site of Canada, and the historic Sanson's Peak Meteorological Station.
