Forest Fires & Ice Bubbles Snowshoe Tour

Explore the dramatic landscape of the West Country, from forest fires to the methane ice bubbles of Abraham Lake.

Start the day with a scenic drive through the front range of the Rockies, along Abraham Lake on the David Thompson Highway as we make our way to Thompson Creek on the edge of Banff National Park. Snowshoe along the creek, heading into an area that was part of the Landslide Lake Prescribed Burn in 2009, catching some great views and seeing how forest fires help renew the area. After a gourmet lunch, head back to the trailhead for a short drive to Abraham Lake where your guide will take you on the ice in search of frozen methane ice bubbles.

Lunch, hiking poles, snowshoe rentals, ice cleats, a professional guide and transportation from Red Deer, Rocky Mountain House or Nordegg are all included.
