Ride the cable car to the top of Whitehorn Mountain and enjoy an exceptional view of Lake Louise and the Canadian Rockies!

Starting at the Lake Louise station, a hamlet located near Banff National Park, you'll take the cable car to admire Lake Louise from the top of Whitehorn Mountain.

You'll board an open or closed cable car that can take up to 4 people, and enjoy a 15-minute ascent to the top of the mountain, which is over 2,000 metres high. As you go up, you'll see Temple Mountain, Fairview Mountain and Fairmount Castle.

Once you reach the top, you'll find a panoramic view of the lake, the Victoria Glacier and Bow Valley. Gaze down at the turquoise waters of the lake and admire the flora and fauna - you may even get to see this region's famous inhabitants - grizzly bears.

When you're ready you can take the cable car down the mountain (4pm at the latest).

Once you're at the bottom you'll have free admission to the Wildlife Interpretive Centre, a fascinating place where you can learn more about Banff National Park's wildlife. What's more, you can enjoy breakfast or lunch in one of the resort's restaurants.
