When the sun stays up late, and going barefoot is the walk of life. When an afternoon bevy turns into an evening beer, turns into a late night dance and a bike ride home, with the warm breeze flickering between my hair. Summer is the best time of year.

Summer in Fernie is FULL ON. Whether you are a hiker or paddler, are biking the gnarly terrain or sitting at a desk, we all face the requirement of taking care of our body in order to maintain it for the coming adventure.

There are so many reasons to hike; the warm summer wind against sun-kissed skin, the aches and pains after miles of woods-walking, the bottle of red wine with girlfriends at sunset.

Fernie’s historic buildings are well known for distinctive rooflines, unique locally-fired rose-gold brick and stone, and a variety of international influences. Only a few original interiors remain although many hints of the past can be seen in pressed tin ceilings, smoke-stained exposed brickwork and vintage windows.
