NORTHERN LIGHTS, ICE CAVES, SKATING, skiing and surreal sunsets. That’s what your days will be filled with if you come up for a winter in Alberta.
We have giant bodies of water that freeze thick enough to drive trucks on, making it a great place to ice fish or go skidooing. Sunrises or sunsets are a blast to watch from the middle of the lake. Endless ice meeting golden skies, a perfect way to either start or end you time enjoying the snow.
If you’re a night owl and you come at the right time, northern lights can brighten your night as you watch the colors dance across the sky. A great photograph and experience I would highly recommend. If you have never witnessed the sky dance, then it’ll certainly blow your socks off. It’s so unlike anything else in the natural world, there is no way to describe it accurately, you can only go and see it for yourself.
Alberta has been my home for almost my entire life, and out of all the places I’ve visited, there is something that always draws me back to this part of the world. The combination of landscapes, starry skies, beautiful sunsets and northern lights are unlike anywhere else.
