If you love taking unusual photographs when you travel, you really need to go to Lake Abraham, in Alberta, Canada. Its frozen landscape is a winter wonderland for any keen photographer where you can capture unique shots of some stunning snowscapes and some even more amazing frozen bubbles.

Don’t let the areas remoteness put you off planning a trip there. Yes, it is in the Canadian Rockies, but getting there is not as complicated as you might think. Nor do you need a massive amount of expensive equipment to get an incredible picture. What you will need to know is how to go about taking your pictures safely, which are the best places to go to get great shots and maybe a few tips on shooting the frozen air bubbles in Lake Abraham.

If you’re shivering at the thought of sleeping out in the open in all that snow, don’t. While Lake Abraham might be a bit of the Canadian wilderness, you won’t need to camp out as there’s some great places to stay. To find out more, just keep reading and even if you’d never contemplated photographing ice bubbles before, by the time you’ve finished this article you’ll be packing your suitcase with snowshoes.

How To Get To Lake Abraham

If you’re flying into Canada, the closest airports to Lake Abraham are Edmonton or Calgary. From both it’s around a three-and-a-half hour drive up into the lower hills of the Rockies. There is only one road in and one road out to Lake Abraham. No matter which part of the lake you’re heading for, you’ll be doing it on the David Thompson Highway (H11)

It’s quite isolated so make sure your vehicle is roadworthy enough for the trip, you’ve got back up food supplies packed in case you breakdown and don’t forget to fuel up at the last gas station which is in Nordegg. If the worst happens and your vehicle does let you down, you might find yourself without a phone signal, so don’t leave your car. Stay with it until the highway patrol comes along and enjoy some hot coffee from that extra large Thermos you stowed on the back seat just in case.

Best Time To Visit Lake Abraham

Although winter grasps Lake Abraham in its icy grip from as early as late October, there won’t be any frozen bubbles to see until much later in the season. It all depends on Mother Nature and what weather she sends so don’t plan to take your trip too early. A good time to consider going is after you’ve taken down the Christmas decorations, seen in the New Year and dusted the glitter off your camera case.

Halfway through January through to February is from when there’s more possibility of Lake Abraham being completely solidified and you’ll have the best chance of photographing frozen bubbles. Winter temperatures do fluctuate though and on a major scale, anywhere from five plus to minus thirty, which affects the ice forming process. As can the warm winds, or chinooks as they call them in Canada, which blow in and melt the surface ice which can leave it opaque.

Where to Stay in Lake Abraham

While you’re not going to be spoilt for choice between a massive range of five-star hotels, there are some great places to stay around Lake Abraham. The ultimate accommodation has to be Aurum Lodge. Run by a man who probably knows more about ice bubbles than anyone and he’s also photographed more frozen bubbles than anyone else too, Aurum Lodge has stunning views down onto Lake Abraham. So if you don’t like the cold and have a good telescopic lens on your camera, you never know, you might well be able to get a decent shot from your bedroom window. You’ll need to book well in advance to get a room there for when Lake Abraham is frozen over as it’s a very popular place, but there are other options which you might want to consider.

Although Nordegg isn’t exactly Las Vegas there are a few more people around than you’ll find on the shores of the lake. If you’re not on a big budget, try the HI-Nordegg HostelВ which is just a thirty minute drive from Lake Abraham, open all year round and very reasonably priced. Share a dorm with friends, have a cookout in the communal kitchen or if a warm chinook blows in, then light the barbecue and have a great night out on the terrace with a few beers.

If you prefer your outdoor experiences to be more on the wild side then book into the HI Rampart Creek. It’s a bit further away from Lake Abraham, around an hours drive, and there’s no electric lights to read by at night just the flicker of flames from the fire pit. Though you’ll be pleased to know the dorms are heated. You won’t need to pack your snowshoes if you stay there either as they’ll provide them for you.

Where To Get The Best Frozen Bubble Photos At Lake Abraham

The waters of Lake Abraham stretch for just under sixty square miles. That’s a lot of lake, so you’ll save time searching if you know before you go where the best places to find the frozen bubbles in Lake Abraham are.

At the top of everyone’s list is Preacher’s Point. The H11 highway, coming from Nordegg, runs right by this part of the lake. So if the conditions are right, you’ll be able to photograph frozen bubbles without venturing too far into the wilderness or far from your vehicle as there’s a great staging area where you can park.

The lake waters at Cline LandingВ are relatively shallow and so freeze over easily, but it’s a spot which is quite likely to be covered with a dusting of snow which doesn’t constitute ideal conditions for ice bubble photography. The shoreline along the Belly of AbrahamВ often gives up the best results. Try the stretch between Hoodoo CreekВ and David Thompson Resort as shots of superior clarity have been captured there.

Don’t think that just because these are the best spots to see frozen bubbles they’re guaranteed to be there. They’re not. Weather conditions, especially the warm chinook winds, can melt the upper layers of ice which often leaves the surface cloudy and difficult to see through. Bubbles are bubbles and if they can find an escape route, well, they will do. So be prepared to visit several spots around Lake Abraham to find the one which will hopefully give you the results you’re looking for.

Tips For Photographing Ice Bubbles In Lake Abraham

You don’t need to be an expert photographer to get some interesting shots of the frozen bubbles in Lake Abraham, but you will need something more than a disposable or instant camera to make the trip worthwhile.

Light conditions on the ice vary so you’ll need to be prepared to cut out glare. Consider investing in a polarizing filter before you go, you’ll kick yourself if you don’t.


If you’re out on the ice and discover an amazing frozen bubble formation, you’ll more than likely want to get a close-up shot to capture all the magical details. Not all cameras can manage that, but a macro lens attachment will probably give you the end result you’re looking for.

There’s some amazing landscapes around Lake Abraham which will quite likely ignite your photographer’s creative juices. To get some fantastic shots of the ice with mountain backdrops, don’t forget to pack a wide-angle lens.

Safety Tips For Photographing Frozen Bubbles on Lake Abraham

What you need to understand about Lake Abraham before you go is that it is in the middle of nowhere. There are no convenience stores, no gas stations and no help close at hand if you need it.

If you’ve never been someone who goes adventuring in the great outdoors, you might want to consider taking a map reading course before you head out to Lake Abraham. Understanding this old fashioned way of finding your way about will come in handy as you’ll have no signal to use the GPS on your mobile phone. Even better, when you’re not familiar with the terrain, it’s much safer for you to go with an experienced guide who knows their way around.

Ice conditions are unpredictable. A covering of snow can mask dangerous areas where the ice isn’t as thick as you might think it is or has some fault in it. The ice needs to be at least ten centimetres thick before you should even consider venturing out on to it and that is still no guarantee it’s safe. To walk on the ice, you’ll need crampons attached to your boots.

Make sure you have the right equipment and clothing. This is not your average ski resort. It can be a very harsh environment and even when the sun is shining, the wind chill factor can be crippling and with gusts strong enough to blow you over. So be prepared. Don’t go alone. For your own safety, either go with friends or join one of the group tours guided by an expert.

You won’t need to consider just your own safety, but keep in mind that of your equipment too. If you’ve mounted your camera on a tripod because you can’t stop your hands shaking enough to get a still shot, be careful. It too can get blown away by the wind and you could end up watching your camera go skidding across the ice and far enough out of reach to be unretrievable.

The Secret Of The Lake Abraham Ice Bubbles

You might like to think that somewhere, down in the depths of Lake Abraham, there’s a lake goddess with a digestive problem, but that would be stretching any one’s imagination just a touch too far. What is down on the bed of the lake is vegetation which, in its natural process of decomposition, is being consumed by bacteria. It’s those bacteria which emit the methane bubbles which freeze in the ice. So, when you’re out there snapping away with your camera, just remember what you’re actually photographing are, in fact, bacteria’s farts. Have fun!

Pimp my shack: Luxury ice fishing a growing trend in Alberta

Social Sharing

TVs, toilets and comfy quarters in high demand, business operators say

If your idea of ice fishing involves some poor soul shivering away on the frozen surface of a remote lake, you might be in for a shock.

Demand for a more comfortable experience has prompted several Alberta companies to start renting shacks that rival high-end campers in the amenities they offer.

«We’ve put out some man-cave ice fishing shacks,» said Nathan Piche, owner of Stony Plain, Alta.-based company Dokcyde.

This is the first winter for the Stony Plain based business, which Piche bills as «an experiential rec [recreation] and social company.»

PIche’s goal, in addition to making money, is to make it easier and more enticing for people to get outside and enjoy what winter has to offer in Alberta.

Piche’s luxurious shacks, which he puts on Wabamun Lake, are the biggest factor in achieving that.

«We threw a bunch of stuff in there,» said Piche. «We’ve got two TVs on board, one purely dedicated for the fish camera with a rotating pan and tripod so you can look 360 degrees in the water.»

The other TV offers a satellite feed and video games for when the fish aren’t biting.

«We have an 801-video game machine emulator and a DVD player,» said Piche, adding that sports are also available. «Whether it’d be some local NHL, NFL, whatever the sport is, we’re able to have that going on as well.»


There’s also a barbecue for cooking your catch and if you like a beer or two with your fishing, you’ll be relieved to hear the shacks are also equipped with toilets.

For those who do decide to do some actual ice fishing, the shacks also come with tackle and — of course — holes in the floor.

Renters bring their own food, water, bedding and outdoor gear but everything else is taken care of, including heat from a propane furnace.

«It’s essentially turnkey,» said Piche.

He used sturdy sheds as the foundation for his shacks with the larger, fully equipped ones costing in the range of $30,000.

That’s probably why most opt to rent rather than buy.

«The way the rental works is it’s a price per person per evening,» said Piche. «On the weekends it’s $115 per person per evening and then during the weeknights it’s $95.»

There are also options for guests wanting to stay for one or more nights, and an «Ice Pub» for quick trips.

«That’s a day-use, drop-in type of arrangement there, and that one’s $65 per person for the day» said Piche. «You can kind of drop in, hang out with some other folks, do a little bit of fishing.»

Further south, Kim Carmichael is also in her first season of offering luxury fishing shacks for rent on Sylvan Lake.

So far business is good for Carmichael’s company, Cool Toyz.

«Interest has been quite high and we’ve had a diverse group of customers since we opened our doors,» Carmichael said. «Many are beginners.»

Sylvan Lake is already well-established as a tourist draw so there’s plenty to do outside of ice fishing.

«You can go skating out at the outdoor range, walk the marina — it’s all lit up at night. There are local shops and restaurants,» said Carmichael. «It was just the perfect area to attract visitors.»

It’s a very comfortable and fun day to spend out on the lake to learn something new, or to show up and everything is luxury and prov >

A visit to a luxury fishing shack can be a mini holiday, appealing to the whole family, she said.

«I believe it’s because people want to spend time with their family and introduce them to new things,» Carmichael said.

«It’s a very comfortable and fun day to spend out on the lake to learn something new, or to show up and everything is luxury and provided for you.»

Cool Toyz currently has two shacks available for rent but there is room to grow, Carmichael said.

«We wish that we had three more for this season. We believe next year we’ll be running with about six shacks.»

She believes there might also be a market to sell luxury shacks to people who want to own one.

«As far as building them for other people, we’re definitely open to that.»

Where do I go to book ice fishing? Any recommendations of particular companies?

Ice fishing tends to be in Kananaskis Country, about 30 minutes back towards Calgary from Banff.

Thanks. Can you do a half day tour or are they all full days?

No idea. You’d have to check out the websites for the outfitters.

Being in Australia, I hope you are not thinking that we ice fish this time of year! This is a December to March activity. When do you plan to come.

15 Beautiful Places You Have to Visit In Alberta, Canada

Arguably one of the most scenic provinces in all of Canada, Alberta is home to two of the oldest national parks in the world and somehow managed to be be incredibly inviting (and very accessible) despite its jagged, rugged and harshly beautiful terrain. Actually, in retrospect, one might argue that it’s rugged natural beauty that is one of the main reasons to actually want to visit Alberta!

There’s so much outdoorsy stuff to do here all year round (even for people who aren’t usually keen on time outdoors) that Alberta is just the perfect holiday destination, regardless of the time of year you visit.

For starters, they do seasons here properly. Winter is winter – complete with snow, frozen lakes and more ice skating than you can handle, summer is scorching – just as summer should be with endless opportunities for barbecues, relaxed hangs with friends and very refreshing dips in the now warm lakes.

All in all, Alberta is incredible (as we’ve found firsthand over and over again) and such a beautiful destination to visit that your holiday plans need a trip to this amazing part of Canada.

This, of course then begs the question – where should you visit in Alberta? You can’t just book a flight to “Alberta Airport” – that would be like booking a flight to “Scotland Airport” (sounds daft, I know, I don’t mean to be patronising but if you’re not familiar with Alberta, after all my raving about it above, it starts to sound like one place you can visit instead of series of several amazing places in one huge region of Canada).

Anyway, to help you on your merry way, here are 14 places we absolutely recommend visiting when you’re looking to book that trip to Alberta!

1.) Banff National Park


Banff constantly tops the list of the world’s most beautiful national parks and it’s easy to see why. Established in 1885, it is Canada’s oldest national park and is located in the ruggedly wild Canadian Rockies. With trails, lakes, forests and mountains to keep you enthralled, Banff is every outdoor enthusiast’s dream destination.

Essentially, if you google a picture of “Beautiful Canada (not even “Beautiful Alberta”), I guarantee you Banff National Park with be one of the tops images that will show up – it’s that pretty and that popular!

2.) Medicine Lake

Located not far from Jasper town (it’s actually in the National Park), Medicine Lake is often described as a sinking lake (yes, you read that correctly!) that has holes in the bottom of its bed.

It’s something of an anomaly and it’s so much more fascinating that I can describe on here (also mostly because, I’m pretty sure my attempt at describing the geological/geographical phenomenon that makes this lake disappear would actually be quite bad) that you should probably check out the official Wikipedia page here for more deets on ‘the mystery of the disappearing Medicine Lake.

Think of it like a bathtub without a plug that’s essentially constantly filled faster than it can drain off. As a result, Medicine Lake has two distinct “looks” one where the lake fills with more water than it can drain away and it appears deep and bottomless and the other where it all disappears through an underground system leaving the lake to shrink to the size of a stream.

3.) Calgary

Often overlooked for Canadian hard hitters like Montreal and Vancouver, Calgary manages to combine big city cool with understated charm. It boasts all you typical city mod-cons (you know – nice shops, amazing restaurants…etc) and is particularly known for the generosity and largess of its citizens.

Calgary is also home to one of Canada’s biggest parties –the Calgary Stampede (I can’t tell you how many of my friends recommended visiting during the time when the stampede is on after I checked in during a transit in the city).

Calgary is also a great entry spot for Banff National Park so if you plan on visiting Banff, you might as well spend some time making the most of city life in Calgary.

4.) Waterton Lakes National Park

What do you get when flat prairies meet the Rockies?The amazing Waterton Lakes National Park! The jewel in the park’s crown is the sparkling sapphire lake and hilltop castle that make it look like something out of a movie.

While Banff and Jasper are often more popular with tourists, Waterton seems to have escaped most people’s radars so if you looking to escape the crowds and still make the most of that stunning Canadian natural scenery, Waterton is really where you should be headed.

Top 10 Places for Fishing in Canada

Fishing is often a great combination of manliness and meditation (Manitation? Sure, why not?) It offers the best of getting in touch with nature, and the satisfaction of making a big catch. And some of the best places to fish are located in Canada. With Canada’s well-earned reputation for high-quality fishing opportunities, TopTenz is confident you’ll be able to find the right type of fishing experience for you somewhere in Canada.

If you can’t find what you’re looking for in one of these locations, get yourself a “Gone Back to Work” sign for your boat or fishing lodge. And if you don’t fish (in Canada or elsewhere) or watch for whales, feel free to move onto to an older, more bizarre top 10 list you might not have read. We suggest this one about mysterious unexplained disappearances. Otherwise, read about the Best Fishing in Canada…

10. Great Slave Lake

The deepest and sixth largest lake in the North American continent, this lake offers many opportunities for excellent fly fishing. Located in the upper Northwest Territories, this is also one of the more out-of-the-way Canadian fishing choices. On the other hand, there’s forty-inch pike, thirty-pound trout, and lots of them. Recommended lodges to be found on the lake include Taltson Bay Pike Lodge, Frontier Fishing Lodge, and Plummer’s Great Slave Lake Lodge.

9. Polar Bear Provincial Park

This park is located along Hudson Bay in the Ontario Province. Although the name suggests that you are more likely to be some animal’s trophy than the other way round, the Canadian park has taken big steps to ensure the safety of the visitors. For example, there are electrified fences that are graded to withstand charging elephants, as reported by the Chicago Tribune. It’s good these are there, because permanent buildings are not available in the park, so you’ll have to rough it in a teepee while you visit. Still, the fishing is so good, that hauls of 80-100 speckled trout are the norm, with many huge individual catches. Since the park has an average of three hundred visitors per year, and only one hundred of them take time to fish, you also can be sure it won’t be too crowded.

8. Big River

For a fisherman who wants a more easily accessed place to get away from it all, there’s Big River Camps Inc. Visiting this secluded and charming area in Middle Southern Newfoundland requires only a short drive from Deer Island airport, and then a quick second flight to their camp site. In addition to a wide range of hunting game, there is an abundant offering of salmon, with a catch-and-release request to ensure returning schools of salmon.


7. Tobin Lake

Does walleye sound like the fish for you? Then you’ll want to check out the Tobin Lake Resort, where one lucky fisherman became the world record holder for walleye ice fishing. Located 33 kilometers north of the closest airport in Nipiwan, Saskatchewan, Tobin Lake Resort also offers extremely affordable lodging and boat rental prices. By the way, regarding that world record-setting pike, it was caught by Father Mariuz Zajac. A priest. Something to think about before you drop your line.

6. Kispiox River

Located in mid-British Columbia, this location is famous for having the world’s largest steelhead fish, so it’s another very good option for someone who wants to set a world record while fishing in Canada. The river is prone to blowing out, due to high rains, for its fifty fishable miles, making for a more potentially thrilling experience. Nearby is the alternative Skeena River if you’re not in the mood for that. We highly recommend checking out the Bear Claw Lodge, whose beauty really speaks for itself.

5. North Lake

Want to really go for the big fish and catch some tuna? We’re not talking just any ol’ tiny tuna that fits in a can, but giant bluefin tuna. Then there’s no passing up North Lake, located in the far Eastern Canadian Prince Edward Island, perfect for after you’ve visited Big Camps River Inc. Your recommended contact to arrange for some rewarding tuna fishing is Tony’s Tuna Fishing. Seriously, fish that average 600-1200 pounds? The defense rests.

4. Bay of Quinte

Suitable for fishermen who just had to visit Toronto and didn’t want to travel too far from there, the Bay Of Quinte offers some excellent Canada fishing for largemouth bass, walleye, and a variety of other game fish. While there are several areas within this bay that are worth looking into, TopTenz particularly recommends Merland Park Resort for walleye fishing.

3. Jasper National Park

Specifically, you’ll want to go to Lake Malinge in this park situated in Alberta, west of Edmonton. Benefiting especially from runoff from the Rocky Mountain range, the amount and variety of trout, just waiting for you to catch them, is extremely tempting. The park is so popular that, in 2006, it drew over 1.9 million visitors. The fishermen among that many visitors can’t be all wrong.

2. Crow (Kakagi) Lake

From muskies to bass to lake whitefish, diverse schools of fish occupy this Ontario lake. It provides some monsters that might just help you set some records. It is also located near the Hudson Bay, and is part of a large collection of bodies of water called Lake of the Woods. Foremost among the resorts available to the the enterprising fisherman is the Lakeview Lodge. They also offer the option of baited bear hunting and deer hunting, but who wants to do that when you can fish in Canada?

1. Tree River

Rated by wilderness and outdoor adventure blog Across and Abroad as the best arctic char fishery in the world, Tree River is located in the western section of the far northern Nunavut Province. Arctic char is a type of salmon, and the world record catch was thirty-two pounds. Who knows, the next one might be caught by you. The river empties into the Arctic Ocean, so a great view is within easy access. Like with our #10 entry on this list, TopTenz is going to recommend one of the lodges that are part of the Plummers Artic Lodge chain. This time it’s Plummers Artic Lodge Tree River Camp, for reasons which will be obvious in the video above.

Does walleye sound like the fish for you? Then you’ll want to check out the Tobin Lake Resort, where one lucky fisherman became the world record holder for walleye ice fishing. Located 33 kilometers north of the closest airport in Nipiwan, Saskatchewan, Tobin Lake Resort also offers extremely affordable lodging and boat rental prices. By the way, regarding that world record-setting pike, it was caught by Father Mariuz Zajac. A priest. Something to think about before you drop your line.

6. Kispiox River

Located in mid-British Columbia, this location is famous for having the world’s largest steelhead fish, so it’s another very good option for someone who wants to set a world record while fishing in Canada. The river is prone to blowing out, due to high rains, for its fifty fishable miles, making for a more potentially thrilling experience. Nearby is the alternative Skeena River if you’re not in the mood for that. We highly recommend checking out the Bear Claw Lodge, whose beauty really speaks for itself.

5. North Lake

Want to really go for the big fish and catch some tuna? We’re not talking just any ol’ tiny tuna that fits in a can, but giant bluefin tuna. Then there’s no passing up North Lake, located in the far Eastern Canadian Prince Edward Island, perfect for after you’ve visited Big Camps River Inc. Your recommended contact to arrange for some rewarding tuna fishing is Tony’s Tuna Fishing. Seriously, fish that average 600-1200 pounds? The defense rests.

4. Bay of Quinte

Suitable for fishermen who just had to visit Toronto and didn’t want to travel too far from there, the Bay Of Quinte offers some excellent Canada fishing for largemouth bass, walleye, and a variety of other game fish. While there are several areas within this bay that are worth looking into, TopTenz particularly recommends Merland Park Resort for walleye fishing.

3. Jasper National Park

Specifically, you’ll want to go to Lake Malinge in this park situated in Alberta, west of Edmonton. Benefiting especially from runoff from the Rocky Mountain range, the amount and variety of trout, just waiting for you to catch them, is extremely tempting. The park is so popular that, in 2006, it drew over 1.9 million visitors. The fishermen among that many visitors can’t be all wrong.

2. Crow (Kakagi) Lake

From muskies to bass to lake whitefish, diverse schools of fish occupy this Ontario lake. It provides some monsters that might just help you set some records. It is also located near the Hudson Bay, and is part of a large collection of bodies of water called Lake of the Woods. Foremost among the resorts available to the the enterprising fisherman is the Lakeview Lodge. They also offer the option of baited bear hunting and deer hunting, but who wants to do that when you can fish in Canada?

1. Tree River

Rated by wilderness and outdoor adventure blog Across and Abroad as the best arctic char fishery in the world, Tree River is located in the western section of the far northern Nunavut Province. Arctic char is a type of salmon, and the world record catch was thirty-two pounds. Who knows, the next one might be caught by you. The river empties into the Arctic Ocean, so a great view is within easy access. Like with our #10 entry on this list, TopTenz is going to recommend one of the lodges that are part of the Plummers Artic Lodge chain. This time it’s Plummers Artic Lodge Tree River Camp, for reasons which will be obvious in the video above.
