Description provided by Establishment

Cruise for 14 glorious minutes, in an open chair or enclosed gondola, to one of Banff National Park's greatest views! At 2088 m/6850 ft, explore the spectacular scenery. From ambitious hikes to the summit of Mt Whitehorn to lovely short strolls, you’ll enjoy soaring peaks, stunning glaciers, lush carpets of alpine wildflowers, clear bubbling springs and often glimpses of wildlife surrounded by unspoiled wilderness. In fact, the Lake Louise Gondola is one of the best places to see wild grizzly bears in their natural environment. There’s an Interpretive Centre with nature displays and themed guided walks. At the base, breakfast and lunch buffets are offered by Lodge of the Ten Peaks, while Canadian cuisine is served at the top at Whitehorn Bistro & Patio.
