Experience The Stunning Views On The Lake Louise Gondola
Cruise on the Lake Louise Gondola for 14 glorious minutes to one of Banff National Park’s greatest views! From the top at 2,088m (6,850ft), 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 yet short strolls for those with more leisurely plans.
No matter what kind of adventure you choose, Lake Louise will quickly capture your heart. 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.
Activities Atop Mount Whitehorn
In addition to the breathtaking views, the Lake Louise Gondola ride takes you up to the top of Mount Whitehorn where you’ll have the opportunity to explore the Wildlife Interpretive Centre, fun and challenging hiking trails, guided walks, and a range of dining options from a contemporary bistro located at 6,700 feet, to a new smokehouse with a patio dining area.
We recommend that you buy your tickets in advance to guarantee your ride on the Lake Louise Sightseeing Gondola.
