Park Distillery Tour

Take a tour of the only distillery within a national park. Their water originates at six glaciers high in the Rocky Mountains and gains minerality as it travels across rich limestone deposits. Their grains are sourced from high-altitude family farms in the Alberta foothills. They hand-mill, hand-mash and hand-distill to preserve the purity of their ingredients. Park Distillery’s line of craft spirits are only available at a small store outside the distillery and a handful of restaurants and stores around the province of Alberta. Stay a while after your tour and enjoy dinner on your own in the attached restaurant- reservations are recommended. For more information about the venue please click here.

Banff Gondola

As a delegate of ICAC 2017, you save 20%* on Brewster’s Banff Gondola and associated packages. This excursion can be booked at your leisure using the code ICAC2017.

Journey to the top of the Banff Gondola to see a whole new side of Sulphur Mountain and the Canadian Rockies. We’ve completely rebuilt, redesigned and reimagined our mountaintop experience, creating a world-class indoor experience that equals the awe-inspiring ridgetop boardwalk 2900 ft. above Banff. From new restaurants and interactive exhibits to a multisensory theatre and a breathtaking 360-degree rooftop observation deck, the all-new Banff Gondola experience heightens every sense.

*Please note that gondola bookings are available at a global discounted rate online up to 48 hours in advance, and the ICAC2017 promo code discount is only valid off the full price rate. The discount will therefore only be applied when booking within 48 hours of the requested tour time.
