Sunshine Village sits high on the Continental Divide in the heart of Banff National Park. It features three sprawling mountains with breathtaking sights, uninterrupted by any signs of civilization. Just a quick 15-minute drive from the town of Banff, Sunshine Village is the perfect place to escape the crowds and enjoy nature. Take a ride up to the skies with the spacious, eight-passenger cabins of the Sunshine summer gondola. Once you have reached the top – the Sunshine Village area, or just “the Village” – stop in at our interpretive center before embarking on an exploration of the six diverse, gravelled hiking trails, that wind their way through three alpine lakes, waterfalls and flower-filled meadows. Feel on top of the world when you summit Mt Standish via our Standish Express Sightseeing Chairlift. With an elevation of 2,400m/7,875ft, it will give you a full 360-degree view of the area. From here you can enjoy an unobstructed view the famous Mount Assiniboine – the Matterhorn of the Canadian Rockies. Banff Sunshine operates daily shuttles from the town of Banff.
