Adding a guided ice fishing adventure to a ski holiday is one way to experience Alberta like a local. Fishing guides provide all the equipment, set up a heated shelter and even introduce visitors to the simple pleasure of cooking and eating their own fresh catch.
Ski or board at Canada Olympic Park or Nakiska and then ice fish near Calgary, Banff, or in Kananaskis Country. The professional guides at Ice Fishing Alberta use the newest techniques in ice fishing. Cutting-edge sonar helps locate the fish and an underwater video camera lets guests observe the exact moment when the fish takes their hook.
Ski the Big Three (Sunshine, Norquay, and Lake Louise) and then go with the specialists at Banff Fishing Unlimited, who have been fishing at Spray Lakes in Kananaskis for more than 25 years. Fish from the comfort of your own heated hut on the frozen lake. They'll even help you cook your catch. Banff Adventures Unlimited offers guided tours from Banff or Canmore and has special tours that combine snowmobiling with ice fishing.
Ski Marmot Basin and then fish in Jasper National Park or nearby Hinton. Whether it’s northern pike or rainbow trout, the guides from Rocky Mountain Fishing Adventures will teach guests how to land the big ones.
