Take your autumn adventures to new heights! The open-air gondola ride at Blue Mountain is an incredible way to enjoy the magic of this colourful season here in Ontario.

According to Destination Ontario, this is one of the best autumn sightseeing experiences in the province.

You’ll feel the crisp autumn breeze and sunshine as you soar towards the summit.

Views of the Niagara Escarpment and Georgian Bay will be visible all around you, and if you visit at the right time, the trees will be a breathtaking palette of emerald, gold, and scarlet.

Panoramic 360-degree views will surround you as the gondola takes you to the top of the mountain.

Once you arrive, you can either stop for a scenic bite at the Summitview Pavilion or hit one of the mountaintop hiking and biking trails.

The gondola operates from 10 AM to 11 PM from Friday to Sunday until the end of October, so you can also plan your gondola ride during sunset.

You also have from 10 AM to 10 PM to visit on weekdays.

During peak times, groups will be combined to fit more visitors onto the gondola — a maximum of eight are allowed at one time.

Pets cannot ride the gondola and its operations are weather-dependent.

There is so much more to do in Blue Mountain Village, making it the perfect spot for a day trip or weekend getaway.

The cobblestone-filled streets and turn-of-the-century architecture add to the charm as the surrounding hills burst with autumn colours.

This destination has tons of shops and restaurants to check out, as well as year-round activities and outdoor attractions of all kinds.

What better way to welcome the new season than with a soaring gondola ride overlooking nature’s beauty?
