If you get a chance to take the gondola near the top of the mountain at Lake Louise, it is an experience you will never forget. The views of Lake Louise are amazing and the scene is simply heavenly. Had a lovely glass of wine on the patio and could have stayed there for ever. Make sure to visit the... More

This review is restricted to the several-times-daily interpretive guided hike from the Interpretive Center underneath the Whitehorn restaurant, near the top of the Lake Louise gondola ride. Living, as we do, in bear country in the mountains of Colorado, we were skeptical that we would learn much on this interpretive hike in a grizzly bear area at 2,000 meters east... More

We first tried to get on the gondola but it was down. It is only a short ride from other Lake Louise attractions so we went back to the lake and did the canoe paddle around the lake for an hour. Of course that was a good decision as the canoe paddle is beautiful also. back to the gondola for... More

Everything else is underwhelming but the view of Lake Louise and the mountain range is worth the ticket.

Our tour group started out with the buffet breakfast. It was probably one of the worst buffets we had ever been to. The hot foods were cold and the pastries were stale. But then we rode the open gondola--in the drizzle, no less. But the view was spectacular and the ride was tranquil. We enjoyed the nature center at the... More

We arrived at 1145; it was cloudy and cool, but we were trusting that the clouds would soon disappear and we were not disappointed! By the time we got to the top of the mountain, the clouds were gone and we could see as far as the eye could see. Truly, this is one of the most spectacular sights in... More

We bought the combination ticket which included the gondola ride and lunch buffet. We ate lunch first. We were impressed with the quality and the variety of dishes on the buffet. After a relaxing lunch we walked down to the lift area. Since it was a chilly day with new snow we opted to ride the gondola car versus an... More
