You depart from your hotel in Calgary and are transported across Alberta's rolling countryside to the beautiful town of Banff. Stop to visit Hoodoo Lookoff, Hidden Corner and Bow Falls along the way.
Your first stop in Banff is the Sulphur Mountain Gondola. Here you’ll take an eight minute ride in a glass enclosed gondola to the 2288 m (7500 ft) summit of Sulphur Mountain, where three levels of outdoor observation decks offer a panoramic 360 degree view of Banff and the surrounding area.
Then we’ll introduce you to the majestic Banff Springs Hotel http://www.fairmont.com/banffsprings/. You will receive a personal 30 minute tour of this unique blend of opulence and seclusion. The Banff Springs Hotel has been a symbol of Rocky Mountain magnificence for more than a century. Styled after a Scottish baronial castle, the Banff Springs offers stunning vistas, timeless beauty and luxurious comfort in a pristine wilderness. After your escorted tour of this magnificent structure you will enjoy a beautiful luncheon buffet prepared with special care and attention in the Hotel’s exceptional kitchen.
Now, take time to visit Banff townsite, where you can tour the many fine museums and natural history centres, in addition to sampling the extensive and unique shopping opportunities provided by an array of the interesting and unique gift shops.
