Banff Gondola

Things to do in Banff: Banff Gondola + Sulphur Mountain

I love it when you all message me asking for suggestions of things to do in Banff and around Calgary. I will be sharing reviews of our favorite activities. So, I’m super excited to start this series with Banff Gondola, the top destination in Banff National Park.

Banff Gondola is our favorite choice to take any out-of-town visitors because you get the amazing opportunity to ride up to Sulphur Mountain summit and take in six stunning mountain ranges. This is especially rewarding for people who do not want to hike up or down a mountain and still enjoy the views!

There is a state-of-the-art facility built right up on Sulphur mountain with two restaurants, a world-class interpretive centre and lots of terraces to enjoy the views.

You can also walk along the Sulphur Mountain boardwalk right towards Sanson’s Peak, which is the first thing we decided to do!

It’s hard not to be effected, as you find yourself immersed in a scene that is nothing short of a post card. Even those in our group who aren’t photo enthusiasts, were earnestly taking pictures. The one issue that you will have is which picture to pick from a great stock you accumulate!

For me it was a long wish fulfilled to be able to take my sister and her family up on the Banff Gondola, since I wanted her to see the best of Canada during her visit!

Hope you enjoy the above video of our whole experience up at Banff Gondola and Sulphur Mountain along with a candid commentary!

There are lots of fun events that take place up at the Sulphur Mountain like the Sunset Festival that is happening till September 2, 2019!
