(7.5 hours from Kelowna | 11 hours from Vancouver)
Less than an hour’s drive from the Alberta border lies Fernie, a town with a past connected to coal mining and the Canadian Pacific Railway. Today, Fernie is best known among adventure- seekers for its powder-filled winters and active summers.
Enjoy tee time under the towering rock face of Mount Hosmer at the Fernie Golf Club, a staple in town since 1918. Hike the alpine trails of Fernie Alpine Resort to discover flora, fauna, and fossils. Be sure to check out the views at Lizard and Lost Boys observation decks while you’re up the mountain.
With 100-plus mountain biking trails (including lift-accessed downhill riding at the resort) there’s plenty to explore on two wheels. You can also try whitewater rafting or go fishing to learn why Fernie is known as “trout town.”
