Gliding high over the Canadian Rockies, the glass-enclosed Banff Gondola flies its passengers above the peaks of six different mountain ranges. These are breathtaking sites and not just for the lack of oxygen.

The journey begins at the base of Sulphur Mountain. En route more than 2,000 feet to the white-tipped summit, the views just get better and better. At 7,486 feet, you'll reach the Summit Upper Terminal, where you can tour the peak's ridge along Banff Skywalk or stop for a bite to eat.
