The Banff Gondola is one of Banff’s ‘must do’ activities and it gives you the best mountain view in the Banff area, a view normally reserved for mountaineers. Access to the gondola is from the base of Sulphur Mountain, which is a 5 minute drive from downtown Banff, and is serviced by Banff’s transit bus. Also in the vicinity are the Banff Upper Hot Springs, a naturally heated spring-fed outdoor pool, where you can ‘take the waters’ and admire the view year round. A ride on the gondola and a visit to the hot springs is a great way to spend half a day. You could also include the gondola ride as part of a Banff sightseeing tour.
