Located at Lake Louise Ski Resort with views to Victoria Glacier, hiking trails, and wildlife viewing opportunities, Lake Louise will capture your heart.

Cruise for 14 glorious minutes, in an open chair or a fully enclosed gondola, to one of Banff National Park’s greatest views! From the top at 2,088m (6850ft), the spectacular scenery is yours to explore at will – there are ambitious hikes to the summit of Mt. Whitehorn for the hardy, or equally lovely short, leisurely strolls for those with more modest exercise goals.

Whatever your fitness level, Lake Louise will quickly capture your heart, so be sure to bring your camera to save your own special memories of soaring peaks, stunning glaciers, lush carpets of alpine wildflowers fed by clear bubbling springs, and-often-delightful glimpses of wildlife surrounded by the unspoiled beauty of summer.

Other services at the Lake Louise Gondola include an Interpretive Centre, Lodge of the Ten Peaks Dining, Cafe and hiking trails.
