Born to Adventure

Mini Adventures. Mighty Adventures. They all deserve to be remembered!

Born to Adventure is a business inspired by the idea that beautiful memories need more than a smartphone selfie, or an out of focus shot snapped by your six-year-old, your husband or a well-meaning stranger! We all want creative and spontaneous photos without getting caught up trying to get the perfect image.

As photography and adventure specialists, Leanne and Kent Nanninga take away that tension, and you get to be present in your moments. As a result, your photographs will be the best possible souvenir from your vacation or adventure

Born to Adventure accompanies people on the experience of their choice hiking, snowshoeing, floating the river, tobogganing, fishing, canoeing, etc. The resulting photographs help you celebrate your relationships—those timeless moments that are energetic, colourful and real.

Hearing Loss Clinic

The Hearing Loss Clinic, located at 322 2nd Ave in downtown Fernie,is proud to be a compassionate, forward-thinking clinic with eight locations (where the coffee is always hot) across the entire East Kootenays and Southern Alberta. They offer a full range of hearing care services provided by an award-winning team of Doctors of Audiology, Audiologists and Hearing Aid Practitioners, helping you connect to the things that really matter—who and what you love most.

Hearing is more than just a sense. It is what connects us to the music that moves us, the laughter that spreads over us, the words that inspire us, the nature all around us, and the people we hold closest. The team at the Hearing Loss Clinic is honoured to help people of all ages to live their lives with confidence, independence, and support, through the gift of hearing. There is nothing more rewarding than making a positive impact on others.
