Explore Canada’s Best Trails

Head to rustic Sunshine Village, located on the Continental Divide and discover the 120 trails that cross the area formed by Mount Standish, Lookout Mountain and Goat’s Eye Mountain. Breathe in remarkable views and vistas, and explore on foot, by bike, or - depending on the season - by snowshoes. Soak in the area’s largest hot pool and a delicious meal afterwards will ensure that you’re ready to do it all again the next day.

Things to do:

Sunshine Meadows

See wild flowers, sparkling lakes, tumbling waterfalls, and the stellar, unobstructed view of Mount Assiniboine at this alpine version of “heaven on earth.”

Banff Sunshine Gondola

Ascend from the village base to its highest terminal in Banff’s biggest gondola and enjoy the 360-degree view of the surrounding Rocky Mountains along the way.
