Banff Holidays

Heart of the Rockies

Picture snow-capped peaks merging with pure white clouds as teal-green mountains offset the sky blue above; Banff is alive with natural beauty.

We love riding the Banff Gondola for panoramic views across not one, not two, but six breathtaking mountain ranges, taking you to the summit of Sulphur Mountain in the heart of the Canadian Rockies. Take the exhilarating eight minute journey over peaks and slopes, Bow River and Banff town, with more and more spectacular vistas as you climb to the 2,281-metre summit for a birds' eye view most birds don't even get to see. Once conquered, head to the Hot Springs to ease those muscles, or take in some first-class skiing and snowsports. 

Combine Banff with Lake Louise for even more breathtaking scenery, or Jasper where the mountainous landscapes will leave you speechless.
