Horseshoe Canyon looks like something like something from Arizona and not Alberta, but it’s only one hour from Calgary. The beautiful canyon and prairielands are sure to make you feel as if you’re in a completely different world. There are plenty of stunning lookouts and numerous trails so that you can take a stroll around the canyon’s floor or enjoy the views from the highest point. Whatever you choose to do, the views are better than those from the local Tim Horton’s. So get there to Horseshoe Canyon ASAP.

Fly: Calgary’s your best bet.

Best time to visit: March-May and September-October are good times. Summer is lovely, but more touristed.

Abraham Lake is stunning each winter when it is frozen. The stunning bubbles are actually methane which creates the white bubbles after it is exposed to the freezing water and it freezes and forms layers. This natural phenomenon is beautiful, and it’s the ideal way to experience outdoors during the long winters, which are cold and long-lasting, not to mention snap some photos to post on your Instagram.

Fly: Calgary or Edmonton (it’s approximately 3 hours between each).

The best season to be visiting Jan. and Feb. are usually the ideal months to enjoy bubbles.
