    Scrambles in Fernie

    Region in British Columbia, Canada

    Discover endless activities unfolding year-round in Fernie, an adventure boomtown located in the Canadian Rockies (with the Lizard Range to the west). Fernie boasts a similar image to typical Canadian towns backed by intimidating mountains, such as the ever-so-popular Banff and equally-as-stunning Jasper. And like these towns, the outdoor activities are nothing short of epic.

    You can go skiing, skating, ice fishing, fat biking, snowshoeing, and the list goes on in the winter. The backcountry also boasts untouched powder tailor-made for experienced adventurers who’ve taken an avalanche course! Then there’s the hiking, biking, boating, rafting, fishing opportunities when summer air drifts in.

    But the adventures in Fernie aren’t the only things creating a memorable experience; the town itself is quaint and picturesque, thanks to the timeless brick buildings set against a dramatic mountainous backdrop. You’ll find fun in-town outings along Victoria Avenue!
