Are you searching for a fun family-friendly activity to add to your winter bucket list?
Look no further than the epic brand new Nightrise experience in Banff National Park. Imagine spending the night on a mountain top, while taking in the sound of the stars and more!
Nightrise honours the magic of these sacred mountains — a place of gathering for many, including the Îyârhe Îethka, the Stoney Nakoda People, since time immemorial.- Pursuit
The Nightrise Experience
Atop Sulphur Mountain
Moment Factory, a Montreal company that has created multimedia experiences around the globe. Now, they bring us an incredible show right here in the Canadian Rockies. The Banff Jasper Collection by Pursuit created Nightrise in partnership with Stoney Nakoda Nation. Lights dancing and reflecting atop a mountain is a magical way to celebrate family time this winter.
The Banff Gondola takes you up Sulphur Mountain and pays tribute to the stories and history of Stoney Nakoda Nation. The immersive evening lights up the sky with vibrant colours of light along the mountain top boardwalk. Nightrise is held indoors and outdoors with video projections and soundscapes along the journey.
Nightrise begins at the base of the Banff Gondola. The voices sharing the history and stories of the land, lift you up as the gondola carries you up, up, up and into the night sky.
You can wrap up your Nightrise experience by having family hot chocolates and treats at the Northern Lights Alpine Kitchen.
Find the magic this winter by creating memories close to home and filled with love and light!
- Dress for winter conditions and pack all the winter accessories because it can be chilly and windy on the mountain
- Be present and enjoy the different senses
- Cherish the family time and try to capture a family photo to hold onto the memories made
- Listen to the audio both up and down the gondola
- Follow all current Government Covid restrictions and protocols
Walk outside the lobby of the Mount Royal Hotel and into the local shops. We enjoyed the beautiful and modern Mount Royal Hotel. We loved the convenience and proximity to all of the shops and restaurants.
The Farm & Fire has many delicious breakfast bowls with locally sourced ingredients. Starting the morning with a gourmet latte and traditional breakfast in Banff is a must!
