Offering Spectacular views of Banff townsite and a 360° Canadian Rocky panorama, the Banff Gondola is an experience not to be missed. On a recent trip to Banff, we decided to give my Mom the real tourist experience (she was only visiting us for three weeks, so this was the most obvious choice for seeing as much as possible in little time!)
We bought our tickets from Brewster Travel, they had an epic deal for residents of Alberta and we took full advantage of this special (basically it was 4 adventures at a huge discount!). You can book single gondola tickets from Brewster as well.
Have I mentioned the amazing views? Oh my goodness, the amount of “oohs” & “aahs” going around was ridiculous, but there just isn’t words to describe the amazing feeling you get when admiring this gorgeous landscape!
For the more ambitious, there is also an 8.4 km hike to the top – it is much harder work, but you get to skip the lines, the ticket prices and probably feel way more accomplished. I have yet to do this, but it is on my list for sure! 😀
Do not miss this if you ever find yourself in Banff! The Banff Gondola is in my opinion the best view of Banff and surrounds and I don’t think you’ll be too sad about the missing dollars from your pocket. 🙂
