Abraham Lake – Bubble lake

Abraham Lake Alberta is an artificial lake created in 1972 during the construction of a Bighorn Dam on the river North Saskatchewan River in western Alberta, in the foothills of the Canadian Rocky Mountains. The area is about 54 square kilometres, and the length is 32 km. The reservoir was named after Silas Abraham, a resident of Saskatchewan valley in the nineteenth century. 


The bright blue Abraham lake against the backdrop of nearby mountains offers varied and spectacular views from any view and is a favourite of photographers.

Frozen Methane Bubbles

Lake Abraham is especially popular for its  ice cover is dotted with fabulous patterns that form under the surface of the water from frozen gas bubbles.

Abraham lake, Canada —The reason for this natural phenomenon is very simple: flammable ice bubbles rise from the bottom of the lake to the already frozen edge of the ice. Methane is a potent greenhouse gas, and it is a highly flammable gas.

Abraham Lake Canada


It happens as follows. Dead plants from the bottom of the Abraham lake produce methane throughout the winter, which rises from the bottom of the lake in the form of gas bubbles. Rise from the bottom of the lake, methane bubbles in ice stick into the ice layer and accumulate under the frozen surface. As the temperature decreases, the ice thickness gradually increases, capturing more and more gas bubbles at an ever greater depth. As a result, peculiar columns of bubbles are formed, frozen into the ice at different depths under each other.

The extraordinary beauty of this bubble lake attracts many photographers from all over the world every winter. However, walking along it does not evoke pleasant memories for most photographers in the Saskatchewan Valley.

The lake Abraham itself and its surroundings serve as an excellent place for lovers of active recreation and ecotourism. But the lake is remarkable, first of all, for its unusual ice cover, in the thickness of which you can see many frozen gas bubbles. The amazing ice pattern annually attracts many photographers from all over the world to the lake.
