About
Soar to the top of Sulphur Mountain to experience a stunning bird's-eye view of six incredible mountain ranges. With breathtaking vistas in every direction, your adventure begins with an eight-minute journey to the summit of Sulphur Mountain in a modern, fully enclosed four-passenger gondola cabin. Glide up over the treetops to the crest of a steep-sided Rocky Mountain peak and step out into a jaw-dropping mountaintop experience at an elevation of 2,281 metres (7,486 feet). Stroll along the ridgetop boardwalk where the views get better with every step. Then warm up in our newly transformed, state-of-the-art summit facility. With new restaurants, interactive interpretive exhibits, a multi-sensory theatre and a breathtaking 360-degree rooftop observation deck, the new Banff Gondola summit heightens every sense.

Must do in Banff
Amazing experience despite the high price. All worth it once you get up there. Good mixing of viewing and trail that leads to the weather station. Peak to see the entire range of mountains. Gondola is approx 8 minutes ride very very stable. Hike fear wasn't too bad of a problem.

Good trip to the top of the mountains. The walk was good along the hike trail and the views were amazing. The money paid for that was okay not too much or too less just okay.

Hello MYUAKASH: Thank you for taking the time to review your visit to Banff Gondola. We are glad to know you enjoyed the boardwalk and the views. To get the best price for the day and time you want, we recommend booking well in advance. Because our prices will increase as the date approaches, you’ll get the lowest rates when you book early. Also, because our prices change based on the day of the week and the season, selecting a date mid-week, or in the early/late season is also a great way to find a lower price. We hope to see you back in the future. Kind Regards, TM

A must do activity in Banff. Superb views.
Well worth the time spent up on the mountain. Spent 3hrs (with dinner) but felt like we could have been up there for longer if not for our Gondola time

Nice gandola ride
It was a nice trip to Sulphur mountain where you use gandola to go up. Cars are having glasses so you can view the beautiful nature around. There is board walk on the top along with sky bistro restaurant which you need tk pre book. There is cafe where you can get the coffee and some snack.

A little pricey if you only want to see the view. But if able bodied, hiking an option. It was very windy the day we visited.

Awesome views

My wife and I visited for our 25th anniversary. We were amazed by the 360 degree views of the surrounding mountains. We took the boardwalk to the top and were blown away by the beauty.

Great View / Northern Lights Restaurant Great
Sep 2021
Good overall experience. As a disabled person, the lack of a handicap or accessible restroom on the ground level was disheartening. Having to go down a large flight of steps to use a washroom, when you recently renovated the site is inexcusable. I know Alberta does not have a disability act like Ontario, but as a leading company in Banff not having one at a tourist location is inexcusable.
