Lake Louise Gondola

Cruise for 14 glorious minutes, in an open chair or a fully enclosed gondola, to one of the Banff National Park's greatest views! From 2088m (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. Complementary transportation is available between the village of Lake Louise and the Gondola during the summer.



Larch Trees at The Lake Louise Gondola.

For a short time in the fall the Lake Louise area turns spectacularly golden! One of the best and easiest ways to see larch trees is by riding the Lake Louise Gondola and hiking the 1.7km return 'Kicking Horse viewpoint' trail. The trail is well maintained but does have a steep section. With the largest parking lot in the area, incredibly good value ride and dine packages and the mid-mountain Whitehorn Lodge what are you waiting for? The Larches don't stay golden for long!
