  • It's a nice ride but it was misrepresented. It's not over Lake Louise - on the way back you can see it from afar.

  • This was a lot of fun. Going up the mountain and seeing bears were awesome experiences. There is a neat nature center at the top of the gondola too.

  • Even though we could only see a short distance, because of the wildfire smoke. The ride up and down on the gondola was very fun. We rode the enclosed cab up the mountain and the open air chair on the way down. The interpretive center at the top of the mountain was very interesting. The shop in the lodge has every souvenir you could ever want and there is a little snack bar as well. We rode the free Ski Louise shuttle from Lake Louise and back again.

  • Beautiful views of the surrounding countryside , with a great board walk .

  • Great way to see Lake Louise from a distance and the stunning scenery of the rockies

  • Beautiful scenery, open or enclosed gondolas, not too crowded at end of August, well worth the trip.

  • Great scenery. We went early in hopes to see grizzly bears but did not see any. We paid and extra 4 for a breakfast buffet and another 5 for a guided tour at the top of the mountain.

  • Not as spectacular as other gondola rides.

  • Wow awesome views, just amazing and still some snow on the mountains. The day we had booked they had a power outage and the gondola was closed but they quite happily allowed us to go back the next day. Lake Louise is just stunning the photo's don't really do it justice

  • So so, not that much to see. Best use your money somewhere else. But if you got nothing to do, go ahead.
