It's prime time to enjoy those changing leaves, and there are tons of ways to do it. From peaceful fall drives to strolls through the park, everyone is getting outdoors to enjoy the beauty of the season. The best views of fall foliage are usually from high up, and this season you can gaze over an expanse of colourful leaves with no climbing involved. Ontario's Blue Mountain open air gondola ride takes you through the sky over a colourful expanse of autumn trees.
No need to bring your hiking boots on this fall adventure! The gondola will float you up a hill, giving you a sweeping view of Georgian Bay. Look out over the enchanting blanket of red, orange, and gold as you drift through the air. This incredible 360-degree view is a unique way to experience one of the most beautiful seasons.
The gondolas run from September 3 to October 20 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. every day, says the website. It's a short window of time, so start planning your autumn adventure. Pets are not permitted in the gondola, and it is advised that pregnant women do not ride. Blue Mountain is also home to stunning hikes, so why not explore the colourful trails during your visit?
The gondola has a ride-down only option for $8.50 to $9.50 each, so you can hike first and enjoy a ride down after.
The suspension bridge is also worth checking out for more towering views. Get you fall-fill this month before the leaves disappear, and hop aboard one of these enchanting flying gondolas!
