hiking

Fernie is world renowned for its easy access to the great outdoors. One only has to stand anywhere in town to look towards the mountains and imagine a variety of outdoorsy pursuits.

The hiking program at Fernie Alpine Resort is becoming more and more popular these days, with the recent addition of Nature Bob’s Interpretive Centre, guided nature hikes, and specialty hikes (focusing on fossils, wildflowers, or trees).

There are so many reasons to hike; the warm summer wind against sun-kissed skin, the aches and pains after miles of woods-walking, the bottle of red wine with girlfriends at sunset.
