It’s true – the views from atop Sulphur Mountain really are spectacular, and riding the Banff Gondola is the most fun way to get there.
From the fully enclosed glass gondola, you’ll see six mountain ranges, the town of Banff and the immense river valley. At the summit, stand on top of the world at the Upper Terminal and follow the self-guided Banff Skywalk along the summit ridge.
Hike the South East Ridge Trail, or visit the summit’s historic buildings, including a meteorological station and interactive giant compass.
Dinner at the summit is an amazing experience, with views of Banff’s twinkling lights and snow-capped peaks.
The eight-minute journey aboard the Banff Gondola takes you to the 2,285-meter (7,494-foot) summit of Sulphur Mountain. The gondolas seat four people and provide panoramic views.
The Lower Terminal is 4 km (2.5 miles) south of Banff township, an easy trip by bus or taxi.
