Visited the Banff Gondola on my honeymoon and my husband and I loved the views from the top! Great photo opportunities from the top. Must see view of Banff.

Awesome! Awesome! Awesome! Went on a clear day & about half an hour after they opened. It was perfect! Everyone was so nice & we were the first to hike the boardwalk up to the summit. Worth the time & the workout to see Banff from as high as you can get.

Stopped on our way south from Jasper to our night stop at Canmore. Failed to notice it was a weekend, BIG mistake. Our ordeal began with a long traffic jam in the town of Banff, continued with the overcrowded parking lot and the long line to get to the gondola. But that was just the introduction to what waited us... More

Absolutely stunning views over the area from the top, a fantastic way to spend some time, and have a spa treatment on the way makes it even better. Only had a coffee up there but meals looked good

Being surrounded by amazing views from the centre of Banff and the roads surrounding it, we wondered how much better the views were from up on high...they were amazing! The food at the top is good too. At roughly £25 each it is a little pricey as once you are up (which takes around 8 minutes) another couple of hours... More

Visited back in the summer. The ride up and down is nice, but kinda scary if you're afraid of heights. The views at the top are awe inspiring. When we went, it happened to snow in the mountains the day before so all the mountains were snow capped which looked beautiful. The weather was around 10-15 degrees that day and... More

A definite must-do when in Banff! Truly breathtaking views! Good food at the restaurant at the top too. Do the full walk to the top point...worth it.

Because we went in early April there was no one there. Which was great for us. The ride is fun and our young kids enjoyed it. The views are great from the top. Make sure to wait for a day when the weather is clear. The only thing is that it's quite pricey. But still go if you can.
