We took the gondola to the top of the mountain. A big queue but moved very quickly. An enjoyable ride and the views at the top were stunning! Walked along the boardwalk relishing the scenery. Had lunch in the panorama restaurant excellent service and a very tasty bison burger while enjoying the beautiful vistas. A definite must!

Highlight of our couple's getaway to Alberta. Exciting trip to the top of the mountain on the gondola, hardly any waiting since the have so many gondolas going up and down the mountain. Spectacular view from the top of the mountain from both peaks.

I was uncertain about the price for this attraction, but it was well worth the money to go to the summit of Mount Sulphur via the Gondolas. It's a 20 minute walk on the boardwalks to the higher peak of the mountain, where you get a wonderful glance at the city of banff and the Rockies. If you want breathtaking... More

The gondola trip takes you up the mountain with the most amazing views, and a boardwalk at the top (about 1km each way) takes you to the summit.

We decided to hike up Sulphur mountain rather than pay for the Gondola. This was a good decision as the hike is pretty easy and very rewarding with the most incredible views from the summit. The boardwalk that has been created makes exploring the summit very easy and there are many places to take great photos.

You'll spend a couple bucks, but it's worth the time and money and braving the crowds for the views and birdseye perspective. Make sure you get off the beated track and take one of the gravel paths a ways to feel like youre really in the mountains, give yourself an hour or so at the top to walk to the... More

I came when it was foggy , but I prayed for the clouds to go while going up the gondola. the fog cleared up for a moment , enough time to take pics of the view from the Sulphur mountain.

Caught the gondola up to Sulphur Mountain and walked the path to the top. Quite a steep climb at times, but mostly solid paths. Lovely views from the top.

After taking the gondola up to the top of Sulphur Mountain, we decided to come back later in the week and take the trail to the top. We are so glad we did, really a superb hike. This is not an easy stroll to the top and can be a bit of a challenge, but manageable for anyone used to... More

We took the Gondala up Sulphur Mountain on a sunny saturday in June, the view from the top was spectacular! Well worth the trip, we took lots of wonderful photos of the Banff townsite and Lake Minnewanka in the distance. There is a lovely resturant and cafe at the top too, we didn't eat there but one day would love... More
