Outdoor activities in Sparwood range from high-energy adventure to pleasant rambles in nature

The Elk River flows right through Sparwood and is one of the finest fishing rivers in the world. Our valley is also home to some of North America’s best hunting areas with an abundance of game. BC’s easternmost golf course is in Sparwood, and a Fred Couples’ designed course is under development. Some of the world’s best skiing and snowboarding is just a short drive away at Fernie Alpine Resort. Of course, Sparwood also offers opportunities for horseback riding, canoeing and kayaking, cross-country skiing, sledding, camping, mountain biking and much more.
