Abraham Lake’s famous frozen bubbles – a uniquely Canadian winter adventure.

This unforgettable winter experience is centred around the incredible natural phenomenon on Abraham Lake, where methane gas bubbles from plant life freezes at various depths under the lake surface creating a breathtaking landscape of frozen bubbles.

Deep in the heart of the Canadian Rockies, you’ll lift off and soar at an exciting 100mph, to 2900m (9000ft) over Cline Pass for spectacular views of the Rocky Mountains. You’ll fly over the 6 Glaciers: Cline Glacier, White Goat Glacier, Lion Glacier, Lioness Glacier, Resolute Glacier, and Hanging Glacier.

From the glaciers, you’ll fly to Michelle Lakes and follow Waterfalls Creek back to the Cline River Valley. As your helicopter rounds Purple Mountain, you’ll have an incredible view of Abraham Lake.  Along the way you’ll stop for a 1-hour guided wilderness snowshoe tour.
