“Amazing view from the top”

Great ride to see the amazing beauty of Lake Superior. A must do if u visit North Shores in Minnesota.. Recommend to get the unlimited combo pass so that u can go for alpine slides as well. Very popular among kids.

“Priceless views of Lake Superior and dogs can go along for free!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2011

It is definitely worth the time and money to take the gondola up to the Summit of Lutsen Mountain. After a short 8 minute ride with breathtaking views along the way you arrive at the summit of one of the tallest points in Minnesota. The views of Lake Superior are amazing, especially on a clear, sunny day. Once you reached the top take the short, easy hike to the observation point to see the lush green valley. After that head to the snack bar for a quick sandwich and sit on the deck and look out over Lake Superior. Dogs are allowed on the gondola ride and they are free!

“Gentle ride, fantastic view.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2011

We were here in early June 2011 on a weekday and had the place practically to ourselves. You purchase your tickets in the gift shop and then board the mountain tram "gondola" car (it's enclosed except for a few inches open above the door handle). Beautiful views of streams, foliage, deer, as you ascend up the moutain. At the top, you exit and there is a chalet-type restaurant with outdoor tables. The view of Lake Superior is outstanding. When you are ready, just present your return ticket to the gondola attendant for a leisurely ride back down the mountain. I think we paid about $12 each (adults). Well worth the time & money.

“Lutsen Mountain Tram - WORTH YOUR MONEY!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2010

I just visited Lutsen mountain tram and it was some $11 and believe me the view is worth all the money you spend on the ride. It's AMAZING especially during the fall season. The color right now are at their peak... worth a trip.

“Great view from the view point @ top”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2010

The ride itself is thrilling.
But the view of the fall color bed from the view point at the top of the ride is marvellous.
Best spot to see fall colors .
