Playing Elsa in Edmonton

Winter has never been my season. Although born and raised a proud Canadian girl, I prefer to watch the snow from inside, cuddled up with a blanket and a cup of coffee instead of outside bundled up in all my layers, still freezing. But, when on a recent trip to Edmonton, Alberta, my friend suggested a trip to the Ice Castle there. So, I decided to channel my inner Elsa and go explore this frozen wonderland, and I definitely wasn’t disappointed!

The original Ice Castle was built in Utah in 2011 and has since expanded to six locations across North America, including Edmonton.

Each year, the Ice Castles are built by skilled ice artists using hundreds of thousands of hand-placed icicles and then lit using LED lights.

The result is a magical fairytale world of ice with tunnels, slides, thrones, fountains and beautiful displays to enjoy.

With fireworks lighting up the sky above, making the ice twinkle brighter, it certainly is a winter wonderland worth exploring!

Planning your trip:

The Ice Castle is open daily but keep in mind that dates and hours are weather dependent. Entries are timed and pre-booking your tickets is highly recommended.
