    • Highlights Include:
    • Banff Gondola - Originally built between September 1958 and July 1959, the Banff Gondola was one man's vision to bring more visitors to the summit of Sulphur Mountain. Enjoy a comfortable 8-minute ride inside our fully-enclosed gondolas while you are whisked from 1,583 metres (5,194 ft.) to a breathtaking 2,281 metres (7,486 ft.) above sea level for fantastic 360 degree views of the Banff townsite and surrounding valley and mountains.
    • Bow Falls -One of the most popular tourist viewpoints in Banff, this waterfall was featured in the 1953 Marilyn Monroe movie, River of No Return.
    • The Hoodoos - These unique structures are shaped by the erosion of alternating patterns of hard and softer rock layers. Although most hoodoos are found in the desert where it is relatively hot and dry, they can also be formed by frost erosion in places such as the Canadian Rockies.
    • This stunning tour is a great way to see Banff and its surrounding area from an amazing selection of perspectives. Depart Calgary in the morning and travel west towards the Rocky Mountains.. After some time is set aside for lunch, enjoy a short tour of the highlights in the surrounding area including stops at the Bow Falls and Surprise Corner. Following this you will head up the Banff Gondola to the Peak of Sulphur Mountain. From here look out over the path you’ve travelled from a 360 degree observation deck, or enjoy a one kilometer walk along a boardwalk to the adjoining Sanson's peak. At the end of the day, hop back on the motor coach for your transfer back to Calgary.
