LAKE LOUISE SIGHTSEEING CHAIRLIFT & GONDOLA

Summer Elevated

0% effort, 100% mind-blowing. From ground-level to jaw-dropping in minutes.
Embrace the freedom of exploring a wide-open alpine neighborhood, surrounded by soaring
peaks and stunning glaciers. Reach the summit and choose your own adventure.

Lake Louise Gondola Experiences

Lake Louise Summer Sightseeing Gondola is the ultimate stop-off for all-ages sightseeing, with some of the best chances to spot wild grizzly bears. To say it’s one of Banff National Park’s best-kept summer secrets would be a cliché, but you’ll see when you arrive how this place balances sheer beauty, effortless-to-extreme adventure, and an escape from the bigger crowds you’ll come across elsewhere.

The views will leave you feeling like you’ve got an all-access pass to the finest scenery Mother Nature has to offer. The impressive vistas that have earned the Canadian Rockies a reputation as one of the world’s most picturesque places, will be abundant.
