Dining packages

Banff Gondola is so much more than just a breezy ride and a pretty view. You'll elevate almost 700 metres as you glide over the forest canopy, admiring the rugged views of Canada's first national park.

Explore the glorious Sulphur Mountain surrounds at your leisure from the gondola summit. Here you'll find interactive and educational displays, a mind-blowing multi-sensory flight experience, and a range of food and drink options.

Having marveled at your 360° perspective during an eight-minute journey from the gondola base, you'll stop off at the Above Banff Interpretive Centre for an interactive look at the region's rich history and famous trailblazers.

Ever wondered how your hands compare to bear paws? The kids can learn all about the local flora and fauna through the Junior Explorer Program, available before 10 am.

Included in your gondola ride experience is admission to the multi-sensory Above Banff Theatre. Soar over the Rocky Mountains as a bald eagle, and experience the raw power of mother nature in a truly immersive setting.

Away from the gondola summit activities, you can choose your own adventure with several scenic trails leading away into the great outdoors. Stroll along the boardwalk to Sanson's Peak, or hike the South East Ridge Trail to reach Sulphur Mountain's true summit and a breathtaking lookout.
