Upper Elk River

The Upper Elk River meanders through its glacially carved valley rewarding you with unique views of the Lizard Range, our beautiful piece of the majestic Canadian Rockies, and home to Fernie Alpine Resort. While floating through these waters, you will enjoy panoramic views of Mt. Hosmer, (the location of the famous Ghostrider), the 5 bowls of the resort, all while enjoying refreshing pools to swim in and river to explore. This trip is suitable for all ages, so come splash, soak, and see our little piece of paradise that we call home.
