The mountains are calling. Some days you want to be lazy, and climbing to a sky-high lookout seems like way too much work. But we found a great way to enjoy the views with zero effort. This unbelievable gondola in Alberta will take you to the top with no work required, plus, you can go zipping over grizzly bears.
The Lake Louise sightseeing gondola is open for summer 2020 and you'll want to add it to your bucket list.
The area is one of the best places to spot grizzly bears and other iconic Canadian animals. When you ride, you'll see wildlife like moose, deer and wild bears under your feet.
There are two different options; the enclosed gondola, which is better for those afraid of heights, or a chair lift with your feet dangling.
Both options are the same price, so it's up to you. But if you're planning on taking photos, the one without glass windows is better as you won't get reflections in your pictures.
On the ride, you'll soar through the sky, up to 2,101 metres. As you go up, you'll see wildflowers, mountain peaks, and if you're lucky, lots of animals.
It's a romantic journey and would make for a cute date idea. The two of you can snuggle together in a private gondola, for a date you won't forget.
Finally, once you reach the top, you'll get to experience one of the best views of Banff. Just a few steps away, you'll find a large patio where you can dine and take in the mountains.
Tickets are $39.95 per person and can be purchased online. They aren't for a specific date and can be used anytime before the end of the 2020 summer season.
What are you waiting for? This is your chance to see grizzlies from a safe distance.
