Head to the Banff Gondola any time during its normal hours of operation to begin your ride. Climb inside a comfortable, modern, 4-person gondola cabin for the trip to the top of Sulphur Mountain. As your cabin ascends high above this mountain paradise, admire bird’s eye views of Banff’s alpine scenery and meandering rivers, arriving at the summit of Sulphur Mountain.

While on top, feel free to explore the boardwalk leading to Sanson’s Peak, a national historic site, or just sit back, relax and enjoy the view. After your allotted time at the top, simply grab your assigned gondola back down to the base of the mountain.

Such a great experience! Pre-booking with Viator made it so easy once we arrived to the gondola. It was 100% worth it, and will continue to recommend the gondola, and booking through Viator to all my friends and family!

I would never use this third party business again. They charged us an extra $100. We did not realize until we showed up that Albertan's get a cheaper rate and this site never asked us this-we therfore payed an extra $100 for our family- i suggest just going to the gondola to get tickets.

The works there are very friendly and helpful . One family in a group , everyone wears mask. On the way up it's kind more scared than go down, but the views on the top of the mountain are so amazing !!
