Getting to the Banff Gondola
As Banff’s most popular attraction, our parking lot fills quickly between the hours of 11 AM – 3 PM. For the best experience, we highly recommend taking our free shuttle service. Not only will you skip the parking lot, but you will be dropped off right at the front door of the attraction. With two convenient pick-up locations and frequent schedules throughout the day, this is the best way to visit us car-free!
