There’s A Festival Taking Place At This Banff Mountain Where You Sip Beers At Sunset

This mountain gondola is running special sunset rides and once you reach the summit, you can watch Banff’s spectacular sunsets in real-time from a patio on the peak.

You can ride up in the gondola from 5:30 pm until 9:30 pm as part of the festival and once you’re at the top, there’ll be live music from local artists and rhythmic dancers performing for the evening.

The festival will have craft beers and delicious donairs to enjoy on the peak patio, and you can gaze out over the incredible panoramic views of Banff while you’re there.

From the peak of Sulfur Mountain, you’ll get incredible views of mountain ranges, the Bow Valley and Banff town. There’s also a boardwalk where you can walk across to Sanson’s Peak for even more incredible views.

At the top of the mountain, you also find a discovery center where you can learn more about the history of Banff National Park or head to the stunning Sky Bistro for the most scenic dinner imaginable.
