I have lived in Calgary all my life and until this year never been up the Mt Norquay Gondola. The view is spectacular. A must visit when in Banff. The restaurant at the top has historic photos that are great. If you are in shape and adventurous you can do some challenging rock climbing.

The Via Ferrata at Mount Norquay just opened this year in June and it is something that you should experience. it is not too challenging but the views from the top of the mountain are breathtaking and the thrill of climbing sheer almost vertical cliffs is awesome. The four hour tour is much better than the two hour tour since... More

We took a ride to the top and the view from the top looking over Banff and surrounding area is fantastic. we didn't consider $35 overpriced at all, the staff were great and the ride to the top cold but fun.

Mount Norquay according to speaking with the employees at the ski hill are offering a summer ride up their chairlifts as their first year. I can definitely see much more of Banff from the top. The view is excellent! Be sure to bring your camera, tripod, and a jacket as the wind can be a bit cool towards the top.

During summer, the café and ski lifts are still open. We stopped in for coffee, but thought it was ridiculously overpriced to charge $35 to ride the lift. The best spot on the drive up to Mt. Norquay is the large turnout that overlooks the town of Banff. We had fun driving up the switchbacks because there was a wolf... More

A gondola to the top is worth the effort and the price. The vistas are magnificent and all are worth recording. Pick a sunny day and you won't be disappointed.

I took my niece and two of her friends, (14 and 15 years old) on the Via Ferrata. They loved it! An excellent, safe and fun adventure for anyone who has never tried rock climbing but is curious to see if they'll like it. Great way to get out into the high mountains and mix a bit of exercise with... More

We took the chair lift after being given free passes from the shop where we rented bikes. We would not otherwise have thought of going up here but we are glad we did as the views of Banff were spectacular. There were not many other people around so it was very quiet and peaceful which made for an even more... More
