Visiting Fernie Safely
Travel within BC and by visitors from neighbouring provinces is now welcome as the BC Government announced the start of Phase 3. Fernie has prepared to welcome visitors back while keeping our community and guests safe. We all want summer to be enjoyable as we respect the provincial health and physical distancing guidelines while exploring our town’s outdoors, activities, shops, restaurants and attractions. View below sample of how local businesses have reopened with your well-being top of mind. For more details and to plan your trip read our Trip Planning during COVID-19.

The new Luchadora Burrito Co. by Nevados Restaurant has recently opened as their tasty response to a safe dining experience this summer.
Hotels in Fernie, such as Park Place Lodge, have placed a variety of health and safety measures to ensure guest well-being and a positive experience. Plexiglass at the front desk during check in is one of many, and with a smile!
Local spa and wellness businesses, such as Three Sisters Day Spa, have reopened with the same great service while ensuring proper safety protocols are in place such as allowing small group appointments for those travelling in the same group or family.
Many local businesses have placed floor stickies to help their customers practice safe social distancing.
Fernie has many great patios, such as the Loaf, to enjoy a summer meal or beverage. All patios have spaced their tables to support physical distancing along with inside dining as well!
