Sit back and relax in a 4 passenger, glass enclosed gondola. Marvel at the unsurpassed view of Banff and the Bow Valley in a breathtaking journey to the top of Sulphur Mountain. You will feel like you're on top of the world when you are standing on the spacious main level observation deck.
Enjoy an educational excursion on the waters of Banff National Park's largest lake. The Minnewanka Valley is home to many species of Rocky Mountain wildlife, and is surrounded by picturesque scenery and interesting rock formations. Live narration is offered throughout the interpretive lake cruise by an experienced guide and naturalist.
Largest of all icefields in the Canadian Rockies, the Columbia Icefield is guarded by 11 of the Rockies' 22 highest peaks. Here, perennial snow accumulates and turns to ice which flows to feed six major outlet glaciers, three of Canada's largest rivers and eventually three oceans. The ice straddles the Continental Divide, two provinces and two national parks. The ice is 365 metres (1,200 feet) thick - about the height of the Empire State Building.
This package does not include transportation to the Banff Gondola, Banff Lake Cruise, or Columbia Icefield Discovery Centre.
Tickets are valid for 2013 season, and may be used on separate days.
