Ride the Gondola for a New Perspective

A ride on the Atlantic Gondola will take you to the summit of Cape Smokey mountain, where you will find expansive views of the Cape Breton Highlands National Park, the Atlantic Ocean, the Keltic Lodge, and Ingonish. Grab a snack and a cold drink from the Summit Shack, take a walk through nature and learn about the history of our area, go kayaking on Hawley lake, and maybe see some wildlife. Please wear shoes with good traction and we’ll see you at the top!

 We do not book dates or time slots, there is always room for you to come and enjoy! 

Frequently Asked Questions:

1. Can a dog ride in the gondola?  Yes, Service dogs and Emotional Support dogs are permitted in the gondola if they are trained and well behaved. You must keep your dog on a leash and be in complete control of your dog at all times. 

2. Is the gondola wheelchair accessible? Yes, the Gondola is wheelchair accessible. You may pull your vehicle right up to gondola bay. The guest services staff at the kiosk will move the barriers for you to do this. The gondola staff will slow down or stop the gondola if needed so you can get on and off. We welcome guests of all abilities. 

3. Does the ticket include the trip up and back down? Yes, we would never leave you stranded at the top. A ticket is good for the day and you may ride up and back down as many times as you like in that day.
