Stargazing at the Banff Gondola
The winter sky becomes alive at dark, and it’s just that much more spectacular when you’re standing mountaintop at 2200 metres. After dinner at Sky Bistro, make sure to head to the rooftop and join astronomers from the Royal Astronomical Society of Canada, Calgary for an amazing stargazing adventure. Learn through interactive exhibits and games for kids and young-at heart adults. After, warm up with a night cap from our signature after dinner taste and drink menu.
The Calgary Zoo’s annual Zoolights event will literally make you see this local attraction in a whole new light. Now in its 20th year, the event runs during the evenings from November 24 to January 6 (except on Christmas Day). The zoo is lit up in dozens of light displays comprised of 1.5 million lights. In addition to the light displays, there are more than 15 activities including giant puzzles about animal adaptation, weekend storytimes, a straw bale maze, a giant Lite-Brite and a skating rink.
