The Lake Louise Sightseeing Gondola, Restaurant and Interpretive Centre

Guided Walks & Interpretive Presentations

Cruise for fourteen minutes, in an open chair or a fully enclosed gondola, to one of Banff National Park's greatest views! From the top, at 2088m (6850ft), the spectacular scenery is yours to explore. There are ambitious hikes to the summit of Whitehorn Mountain for the hardy, or equally lovely short, leisurely strolls for those with more modest exercise goals.

Join us for a moderate, 45 minute walk along the Trail of the Great Bear, which addresses a question most of us have while in bear country. "What should I do if I see a bear?" We will learn how to stay safe in bear country while keeping bears safe as well.  Note: walks are based on a first come first serve basis. A minimum of 4 people are required to walk, up to a maximum of 14.  The Wildlife Interpretive Centre, located at the top of the sightseeing Gondola in Whitehorn Lodge, provides guests with a unique opportunity to learn about the local wildlife and rich history of Lake Louise and the Banff National Park. Complimentary programs are conducted daily by our Interpretive Guides who will lead you through the landscape in the footsteps of wildlife and early explorers. 

Dates: Daily.  Gondola Hours - 8:30AM to 6:00PM from Sept 4th – 7th & 10:00AM to 4:00PM from Sept 9th – Oct 11th.  Guided Walks: Depart at 11:00am, 1:00pm & 3:00pm.  Presentations: 10:00am, 12:00pm & 2:00pm
