We took the Gondola up and had dinner at Panorama restaurant. The views from the restaurant and the viewing platform of Banff are excellent. It is a bit too busy, but that is to be expected. The queues to the Gondola in both direction was also very long.

It is to beautiful and to close not to visit. Only 15min by car from center of Banff, easy to find and easy to park. The hike is around 5,5km to the top, it is of moderate intensity and we definitely recommend it. One good tip: if you hike up and want to go down after 6.30pm, the skytram is free :) Consider it as an award for you effort. We did :)

You need to be a serious walker to walk up to the top of Sulpher Mountain, so we got the Gondola. A very small queue and 5 minutes later we were at the top.

At the top you get ones of the biggest views I've ever seen, looking down at Banff with all the huge mountains surrounding it.

Wait until it is sunny to go up if you can. We were going to go but it was gre and dull, so went for a walk elsewhere and as soon as the sun started to come out we headed back to the Gondola's and got the great views.

We had a great time, taking the gondola up the mountain, it is something my family will always remember! The day we went it was incredibly cold, but we still had an amazing time. The view at the top is nothing short of spectacular. Definitely don't miss this attraction if in the Banff area.

Wow. Seriously this was the highlight of the area for me. We went up on the Gondola early in the morning before the crowds. There is a wonderful wooden walkway linking the gondola station to the weather station and is a very easy walk with some steps. You will get to see so many things from high up there and quite literally bought a tar to my eye
