Wild Nature Tours

Discover the unique natural history and scenic beauty of the Elk Valley on an educational snowshoe tour through a beautiful forest with gorgeous views, an invigorating winter hike to one of our favourite local spots or a family-friendly excursion on some of the local trails.

Led by professional naturalist Lee-Anne Walker these winter tours are geared to get you outside and learning about all of the amazing things we have in our own backyard in the Elk Valley. With outings exploring the best of the the Fernie area there is sure to be something for everyone! Wild Nature Snowshoe Safaris run from December 27, 2017 to March 30, 2018.

Wild Nature Tours and Workshops are nature-based enterprising non-profit ventures that take you off the beaten path to connect with the Elk Valley environment. All proceeds go towards supporting local conservation and environmental education projects.

To book a tour please get in touch or check out the details on our Winter Snowshoe Safaris or Backyard Tours of your own backyard.

Give the gift of nature with a Wild Nature Tours gift certificate. Email us for details.
