When you’re ready to enjoy the most stunning eight minutes of your life, climb aboard the Banff Gondola to take in the gorgeous alpine landscape of Alberta.
The Canadian Rockies are among the most beautiful mountains in the world. In summer, these mountains are exquisite alpine peaks, capped in green trees and towering over lush valleys. In winter, these mountains are arguably even more beautiful—snow-capped precipices that stretch on as far as the eye can see.
You can get an up-close look at this beauty when sightseeing on the Banff Gondola. From the town of Banff, you’ll head to Sulphur Mountain, located just a few miles away. Climb into the glass-enclosed gondola with a handful of other passengers. When the Banff Gondola tour begins, your gondola will ascend the mountain range at a measured pace, giving you plenty of time to see Banff itself, the Bow Valley, and the mountain ranges that comprise the Canadian Rockies.
The Banff Gondola stops at a staggering height of 7,500 feet, allowing you an astonishing view of the world below. Bring your camera to snap some pictures, because you’ll never want to forget the stunning vistas that you see. If you elect to stay on top of the mountain for a bit, you can learn about the history of the region on a one-mile interpretive walk. Alternatively, you can enjoy a meal and refreshments at the nearby restaurant while looking out over one of nature’s most precious accomplishments.
