We're so pleased to welcome our friends from Tourism Fernie to the blog for a guest post on all the ways to relax and unwind before your wedding day in the Rocky Mountains.

With all of the planning and organizing involved in a wedding, it's important to schedule in time for yourself! Located only 3 hours from Calgary, Fernie's pristine mountain environment and relaxing vibe have made it a destination for spa and wellness seekers. Whether planning a girl's getaway, stagette or pre-wedding day pampering, Fernie offers diverse spa and wellness options.

The Spa at Island Lake Lodge is a mountain oasis, offering tranquility and relaxation. Unwind in their outdoor cedar sauna, select from a range of services and therapies in one of their six treatment rooms. Enjoy a cup of handcrafted, organic tea in their serene relaxation room or rustic outdoor lounge.

Spa 901 offers 6,600 sq ft of bespoke facilities within the original brick walls of a renovated 1908 schoolhouse, located in Historic Downtown Fernie. Featuring a giant outdoor whirlpool, infrared saunas, relaxation lounges and custom private treatment rooms, in addition to their group manicure and pedicure suites.

Also located in Historic Downtown, the Three Sisters Day Spa and Enchanted Esthetics will treat you to a full range of esthetic treatments, massage products and body wraps by their professional estheticians and therapists. One can easily combine pampering, shopping at local specialty stores and relaxing in a cozy café into a day.

During the winter season, additional mountainside spa services are available at Névé Spa within Lizard Creek Lodge and King Fir Spa & Wellness at the Timberline Lodges. Fully encircled by dramatic peaks, tranquil old-growth forests and the clear waters of the Elk River, Fernie offers natural beauty and a warm welcome. This four-season destination can be experienced as a getaway retreat or as a unique setting for your mountain wedding.
