This tour of the spectacular natural landscape surrounding the city of Banff is the perfect introduction to this famous Canadian resort town and Banff National Park.

Begin your tour with hotel pickup, and then proceed along to Sulphur Mountain. Here you will make an ascent to the top of Sulphur Mountain aboard the Banff Gondola, which ferries passengers to the peak of the 7,486-foot (2,281-meter) mountain. Snap a few photos and then head back down. Next continue to Tunnel Mountain Drive, where you can enjoy views of the town, Mount Rundle, Cascade Mountain and Bow Falls. Along the way, you’ll also have a chance to view the hoodoos, a series of interesting rock pillars shaped by countless years of wind and water.

End your day at Two Jack Viewpoint and Lake Minnewanka, and then head back down the mountain for drop-off at your hotel.

Our first day in Banff was wonderful. The scenery from the top of the mountain was spectacular and the boat ride was perfect but maybe unnecessary. Our guides, Andy and Jessel, were informative and loads of fun. This is a great way to spend the day.

I felt like this tour was a great exposure to the Banff area. Good intro. I opted for the extra boat cruise add on which was so worth it. Pace was good. Never felt like we dwelled too long at any one place. Smoke was definitely a bummer but that can't be controlled. Its 1/2 a day so eat a big breakfast. A lunch stop isn't really possible.

A great way to become familiar with Banff. We were taken to places like the Art Center and Tunnel Mountain Road that we wouldn't have found on our own. Great narration by the driver on a comfortable bus.
