Pictures do not do this place justice. Just stunning!!! Visit all 4 floors. Make time for a drink or meal at their restaurant. Dress appropriately for cooler temperatures.

We enjoyed the gondola ride very much. The views were good but the clouds blocked some of the mountains. The experience was fantastic. We enjoyed our supper in the Bistro and service was great.

Definitely recommend taking the open air seating above the gondola itself. One of our party was a little frightened of heights, but interestingly felt more comfortable in the 4 seater, rather than esclosure

Wow wow wow! This is an absolute MUST while visiting Banff. Whether you hike or take the gondola to the top (we took the gondola for the experience) and it was beyond worth it. Walk up the stairs to the highest viewpoint. You won't be...More
