Overview

  • Only a short drive from the Banff Townsite to access, Sunshine Meadows is a unique region of the Canadian Rockies and well suited to all ability levels of eager mountain traveler. 
  • While much of the height of the Continental Divide is covered in glaciers and high peaks, this small 15km long stretch of between Citadel Pass and the Monarch Peaks lies a mixture of gentle rolling sub-alpine terrain perfect for those looking to experience some of the best hiking the Canadian Rockies has to offer, a centerpiece of which are a spectacular array of wildflowers found nowhere else in the range.

 

About This Tour

  • Nearby lies the Sunshine Village Ski Area.
  • A shuttle or ride on the Gondola will deliver us the Village itself at 2200m and the start of our day.
  • Full and Half Day hiking packages available with our professional ACMG Certified Mountain and Hiking Guides.
  • Come and join us to learn about the spectacular natural history, wildlife and ecosystem of this gem of the Canadian Rockies.
  • A fantastic hiking objective within easy reach of the Banff Townsite.

Is this tour right for me?

  • This trip is for those looking for an easy to moderate hiking experience.
  • We will spend our day between elevations of 2200m - 2500m, which for those visiting Banff from lower elevation locales can ocasionally feel taxing.
  • This said, the availability of both shuttle and the option to use the ski lifts lighten the load tremendously.
  • Total hiking distance often falls between 5km - 10km, while total elevation gain can be between 100m - 300m over a duration of 3-5 hours.
