Banff Gondola Ride Admission
From US$51.77
Maximize your views of Banff National Park with minimal exertion during this round-trip gondola ride to the top of Sulphur Mountain. Take in views of 6 different mountain ranges and nearby rivers aboard your state-of-the art alpine transport, offering large windows and seating for 4 guests. Enjoy time exploring the ridge line boardwalk before returning back to town.
What to Expect
Head to the Banff Gondola any time during its normal hours of operation to begin your ride. You’ll climb inside a comfortable, modern, 4-person gondola cabin for the trip to the top of Sulphur Mountain. As you cabin ascends high above this mountain paradise, you’ll admire bird’s eye views of Banff’s alpine scenery and meandering rivers, arriving at the summit of Sulphur Mountain after an 8-minute ride.

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 hour and forty minutes at the top, simply grab your assigned gondola back down to the base of the mountain.

More deals should be offered...

The gondola is of course spectacular BUT the admission is quite high. They should offer more deals or two for one specials. Full price makes it nearly impossible for a regular families to attend...

Spendy but worth it.

Expensive? Yes, but how can you pass up on a ride like that. We wanted to eat at Sky Bistro so it was a no brainer.

Amazing views for people with strong stomachs!!!

Quite a steep Gondola ride! but when you get to the top the views are amazing and you can walk up to the next peak, but quite a lot of steps. Be prepared for breathlessness because of the height. Small cafe area and restaurants there.
