This tour takes us on an easy trail along Miners Creek toward the clearing below the Brazeau Collieries National Historic Site where we get to enjoy some great views of Coliseum Mountain and the townsite. As the stars come out we make our way back toward town where snacks are waiting for us.

Getting here From Lake Louise
Coming from Lake Louise? The Icefields Parkway (Highway 93) will take you past Bow Lake, Crowfoot Glaciers and many other landmarks before heading east on Highway 11 where you’ll enjoy the North Saskatchewan River valley. It’s less than 2 hours to get here from Lake Louise we recommend planning on at least 2.5 hours so that you get to enjoy the views along the way. Please note that winter tires are mandatory on Highway 93.
We get to play outside on our tours and that means you’ll want to come prepared for the weather. We rarely cancel tours due to weather, as long as we can have a safe adventure. You’ll be amazed at how warm we get when we’re having fun!
Make sure to dress in layers and come ready for the unpredictable weather we often get in Alberta. Most days are between -15°C and 0°C, but we see anything from -30°C to +10°C on our winter tours. Abraham Lake is a very windy place, bring an extra layer with you just in case.
Make sure to bring with you:
- Winter boots.
- A winter jacket and snow pants.
- Tuque and gloves.
- Clothing to wear under your snow pants and jacket: for example long underwear and a fleece sweater.
