Oh Canada! Banff from Above
A trip on the Banff Gondola on our Canadian Rockies tour is an 8 minute ride up 2292 feet to Heaven!!!
When you arrive at the top of Sulphur Mountain, you are immediately greeted with a 360 degree view of the incredible snow capped mountains of Banff National Park.
Continue along the boardwalk on the ridge of the mountain and you’ll get stunning views of the Bow Valley and the town of Banff far below.
If you are up for a challenge, you can hike 3.2 miles down the mountain switchbacks instead of returning on the Gondola.
We’ve experienced the Gondola ride in all kinds of weather. One trip took us through the clouds, only to be greeted by sun and unbelievable views of mountains peeking through the clouds.
Another trip started out in light rain, which turned into snow by the time we reached the summit… in September! Other tours we’ve had clear days where we watched the fog roll in, while others have started out foggy and we had a beautiful reveal of what was around us! You simply never know what you are going to get but it is always spectacular!
The views high above Banff are not to be missed!
