The Elk River cuts its way from glacial lakes through to the mountains surrounding the Fernie. The calmer waters north of town offer a relaxing journey to soak in views of neighbouring mountains, like Mount Hosmer. You may even catch some of the local wildlife as you drift by the banks.
You can experience the beauty and tranquillity of the Rocky Mountains surrounding Fernie on a guided float trip.
South of Fernie is where the Elk River goes from mild to wild. Should you embark on a day trip paddling these waters you'll see the dramatic canyons and hoodoos carved out by centuries of ice, water, and wind.

Historic Downtown 2nd Avenue is a highlight of any Fernie travel itinerary. Boutique shops, restaurants and galleries line the sides of the avenue all under the mountain backdrop of the Lizard Range.
