Think you’ve experienced summer in Lake Louise? Think again.Look no further for world-class views (with a side of adventure and grizzly bears).

Lake Louise, the gem of Banff National Park, attracts millions of visitors each and every summer.  And who can blame them?  It’s one of the most spectacular natural settings the world has to offer.  But your Lake Louise experience shouldn’t end at the turquoise blue shoreside; this is just the beginning of deeply exhaling in a true Lake Louise experience – one to be remembered.


Just a short drive from the lake itself, you’ll find an authentic slice of the Lake Louise region, without the need to wait for the crowds to disperse before getting that mountain-drop selfie.  Soar above and breathe in the wonder.  At Lake Louise Summer Gondola, prepare for never-ending stretches of alpine vistas as far as the eye can see, on-hand expert guides and know-how on our wilder neighbours, fine dining at elevation, and perhaps even a big-footed resident wandering in the valley below...
