The 7,000 acres of pristine wilderness at Island Lake provides countless hiking opportunities.

Scheduled Guided Hikes / Summer 2018

It's going to be a busy summer at Island Lake Lodge, with the 2nd Annual Untamed Kootenays event helping kick it off!

Dust off your shoes and hit the trails for a run on these green and blue trails. 

The Elk Valley offers up a dizzying array of new sports and outdoor pursuits just waiting to be conquered. You can literally choose peaks, put in the blood, sweat and tears and conquer mountains.

Arriving at one of the many peaks surrounding this Valley, and taking in the awesome views is always a summer highlight. Here are your favourites from 2017.

November is a good time to reflect on the season and recharge your batteries. You never know what you are going to get for weather this month or what activities will be available. Skiing, hiking or biking, maybe all three?

Back by popular demand! Fernie Alpine Resort is adding one more specialty hike on Fossils & Geology to their summer hiking program!

A 380 million year old history lesson: Fossils & Geology

Why are the rocks in the Lizard range upside down? And how does Polar Peak tell the story of a mass extinction event 360 million years ago? Find out the answers to these questions and more as we traverse ancient sea beds, uncovering the remnants of the sea creatures that lived in ancient times. 

Mountains surround us. We live, work, and play amongst them. Where you have a bunched up rug, you have a mountain. And where you have Prairies and the Canadian Shield, you have hardwood floors.

Event Date: 
Repeats every week every Sunday and every Tuesday and every Saturday until Tue Aug 29 2017.
