Take a (Virtual) Hike
Parks Canada has recently teamed up with Google Maps to give you a "Street View" of some of Canada's most iconic landmarks, such as beautiful Moraine Lake.
Take an eight minute ride in a safe, glass enclosed gondola as you ride up to the top of Sulphur Mountain. Savor 360-degree spectacular views of the majestic rocky peaks that surround Banff as your eyes focus to Lake Minnewanka in the distance.
Enjoy lunch at the Summit Restaurant or dine at the Panorama Restaurant. If you are feeling adventurous you can hike up the Vista Trail Boardwalk to Sanson’s Peak or to the true summit of Sulphur Mountain on the South East Ridge Trail.
The Banff Park Lodge concierge desk can help arrange any of these excursions for you.
