Day 01


Banff Gondola is an award-winning attraction that takes visitors in safety and comfort to a place many would never be able to access: the peak of Sulphur Mountain! Enjoy a stunning eight-minute ride to the summit of Sulphur Mountain, elevation 2281 metres (7486 feet), comfortably seated onboard a completely enclosed gondola car. From the vantage point at the summit, you will enjoy amazing panoramic views of Banff, the surrounding peaks, and the gorgeous Banff National Park.

Head to the upper and lower observation decks to receive fantastic panoramic views of the Bow Valley below. You may also enjoy the Banff SummitWalk, an easy 1km self-guided interpretive boardwalk that leads you from the peak of Sulphur Mountain to the Cosmic Ray Station National Historic Site of Canad, and the historic Sanson's Peak Meteorological Station. Hikers can also try the South East Ridge Trail - a favorite among locals.

The upper terminal is open now, which features the Explore Rockies desk, a gift shop with the all-new Ammolite Jewelry desk, Castle Mountain Coffee Company that offers grab-and-go sandwiches, salads, fruit, and other snacks. (Note: coffee will be available in the coming days).

Guests are encouraged to continue using the facilities at the lower terminal until all of the upper terminal facilities are open including:
♦ Tickets, Explore Rockies Activity Centre
♦ Gift Shop
♦ Photo Experience
♦ Starbucks
♦ Grab and Go patio
♦ Washrooms

Special Notes
  • The Banff Gondola is wheelchair accessible and easily accessed by those who are elderly or families with strollers and young children. We can put one of the seats up in the gondola car to accommodate strollers and wheelchairs.
    The gondola car itself comes off the track to load and unload passengers, leaving all our guests with as much time as they require to get in and out.
    Please note: Though our facilities are wheelchair and stroller accessible, however the boardwalk is not as it consists of 368 shallow stairs each way.
  • Dogs are allowed as long as they are kept on a leash and are well-behaved. Dogs will be counted as a passenger (i.e. 3 people and 1 dog are able to ride in one gondola car). Bikes are not permitted on the Banff Gondola and there are no mountain biking trails to ride down.
  • The best times to avoid crowds are anytime before 11:00 AM or after 5:00 PM.
  • Free Gondola Shuttle: Due to the ongoing construction, parking at the Banff Gondola is very limited. Guests are strongly encouraged to leave their car behind and ride the FREE shuttle. The shuttle departs every 15 minutes from the Banff International Hotel and Evelyn's Coffee World located on Banff Ave between 10:00am - 6:00pm. Last shuttle departs the gondola at 6:15pm.
  • The local bus arrives at the Banff Gondola every 40 minutes. The cost is $2.00 per person and passengers will need to provide the correct change as no change will be given on the buses.
  • The cost of a taxi ride from the Banff Gondola to downtown Banff costs approximately $10 to $15.

    Surprisingly Fun & Educational too!

    My wife and I took the Banff Gondola ride the 2nd week of October when many of the resorts in the area were closing down for the season. I expected to ride it to the top of the mountain, walk around cold and maybe go to some cheesy gift sh...op and go back down. Was I wrong!!! There were 2 restaurants and the National Parks Department had tons of exhibits and interesting wildlife exhibits. There was also quite a bit of history with a beautiful Welcome Center, an Observation Tower and other hiking paths that were nicely maintained with stairs and decks. Definitely worth the approximately $50 a person for the ride as we were up there much of the day, Read full review

    Enjoyed the ride on the Banff Gondola. Beautiful scenery. So worth the trip when you get to the top of Sulphur Mountain. 360 degree views of the valley below. Spectacular. The only negative about booking with tours4fun online is that there ...is no option for selecting a time for your activity. I had to call them for instructions as to time. Read full review
