Wild Nature Tours

 

Discover the unique natural history and seasonal 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 summer and 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! 

We are so pleased to take you out for a Wild Nature Workshop! Look to the left and click on “Wild Nature Workshops” to see all of the amazing things happening now! 

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.
