The Lake Louise Gondola
The Best Grizzly Bear Viewing and Scenery in the Canadian Rockies!
Located in Banff National Park, the Lake Louise Sightseeing Gondola & Interpretive Centre offers a unique opportunity to dine in the beautiful Lodge of Ten Peaks, ascend to an awe-inspiring viewpoint, and to learn why we are the home of the grizzly bear. 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.
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.
