Ride the Banff Gondola
Travel to the top of Sulphur Mountain to experience a bird’s eye view of six mountain ranges. The Banff Gondola is located just five minutes from the town on the shoulder of Sulphur Mountain, in the heart of the Rockies, and offers 360o views from the summit.



View from Sulphur Mountain

Get on Track
Hop aboard the historical railroad tour, departing Jasper on Sundays, Wednesdays and Fridays. The half-day train trip takes you over the Yellowhead Pass following the Fraser River past the highest mountain in the Canadian Rockies, Mount Robson, and with plenty of chances to see moose, eagles, deer, elk and coyotes.
Ski Hat-Trick
The ski resorts of Lake Louise, Sunshine Village and Mt. Norquay are located within the limits of Banff National Park which means the unspoiled views are protected from over development as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Visitors can ski three pristine wilderness areas and see spectacular mountain scenery using interchangeable lift tickets.
Go to the Dogs
Ride a sled pulled by Alaskan Huskies as knowledgeable guides or “dog drivers” teach you how to handle and harness their team of dogs in preparation for an exciting outing along frozen lakeshores and through snow-blanketed valleys.

Banff Upper Hot Springs
Experience the relaxation and rejuvenation inspired by Banff’s naturally heated mineral spring pool in a spectacular mountain setting. The restored heritage bath house offers all the amenities of a modern facility within a historic spa and bath house against a backdrop of Banff’s spectacular alpine scenery.
