Ice Bubbles & Winter Sights

We have gorgeous winters and many of the great spots can be seen right from the highway or just a short walk away. Places like the Abraham Lake ice bubbles only require a short walk from the car while others can be found simply by taking the back roads instead of the main highways.

The now famous methane bubbles of Abraham Lake are worth a visit throughout the winter months.

The lake typically freezes in mid to late December with the ice bubbles at their best from mid January to early February. The bubbles are still visible later in the winter but the ice starts to get cloudy and is more likely to be snow covered in sections.
