Less than an hour’s drive from the Alberta border, Fernie’s past is connected to coal mining and the Canadian Pacific Railway. From rugged roots, the community has evolved into a year-round adventure playground known for good food, friendly locals, and spirited culture.
Fernie has a rich Indigenous culture and the Ktunaxa people have lived, travelled, and traded in the area since time immemorial. Stop by the Fernie Museum or take a self-guided heritage walking tour to learn a little more about its intriguing people and places. The Art Walk, with its chainsaw carvings, iron sculptures, and street art, provides a colourful glimpse at Fernie’s eclectic creative scene.
