After many informal arrangements to take guests snowshoeing, hiking, birding and wildlife viewing, long time resident, professional naturalist and heritage interpreter Lee-Anne Walker decided to legitimize her nature-based tourism business with the formation of Fernie Nature Tours in 2001. Fernie Nature Tours has guided thousands of guests from all over the world, students from across Canada and particularly the Elk Valley, as well as scores of locals on adventures of a ‘fun, friendly Fernie nature’.

Fernie Nature Tours is a family business with Lee-Anne Walker, as the lead guide supported by her husband Gary and daughter Chalice. For nearly 30 years, Lee-Anne’s programs offers people unique experiences weaving together interesting, enlightening information.

Fernie Nature Tours offers snowshoe tours ranging from 2 hours, 3 hours or full days. Join the Stargazing Snowshoe fondue with headlamps under the stars rewarded by a chocolate fondue. Take a wildlife viewing tour, experience winter fun in a family program, or let her customize a tour for your group or corporate retreat.
