A small mountain town that has it all.
The first morning was spent on Polar Peak at the Fernie Alpine Resort which gave us an incredible vantage point of the town and an endless amount of peaks in the distance.
The days were long and hot, this called for some time on the water. Silver Springs was the perfect place to swim and hang out, we even hiked an Oru Kayak up to the first lake!
One afternoon was spent paddle boarding on the Elk River with Mountain High Adventures. It was my first time ever SUPing on a river, it was a blast!
You don't even need any experience to try it! I highly recommend this.
One of my favorite places in Fernie was Island Lake. Stunning views all around and some of the best hiking trails to get a birds eye perspective of the valley. On the way out to the lake you pass through an old growth forest, where you can give some MASSIVE trees a hug!
Some of the most memorable times were hanging out & exploring the town with friends, new and old, celebrating life with good local food and some Fernie Brewing Co. beer!
I can't wait until next time.
