Attractions: ● Lake Louise Ski Resort - Tubing & Gondola (Optional) ● Heli Tour (Optional) ● Bubble Lake (Abraham Lake) For adventurous people who like winter outdoor activities, this experience gives you the opportunity to enjoy tubing, sightseeing gondola, and helicopter tours at Canadian Rockies in the winter. Also visiting the Abraham Lake, an artificial lake and Alberta's largest reservoir and known as "Bubble Lake". Decaying plants on the lake bed release methane gas, which creates bubbles that become trapped within the ice, in suspended animation, just below the surface as the lake begins to freeze. The visual effects formed by the resulting stacks of bubbles, frozen while rising toward the surface, combined with the clear blue water, have made Abraham Lake a popular destination for photographers and nature observers.
