Staying in Fernie just became a whole bunch cooler with the addition of yurts at the Fernie RV Resort!

The Fernie RV Resort just finished outfitting five yurts that are ready for booking year around. That’s right, year around! That means winter glamping or luxury camping in a heated yurt beside the endless XC trails and Elk River.

The yurts are answering the call of campers who want outdoor adventure combined with a few home comforts. Luxury camping or ‘glamping’ in yurts is a new option to escape on vacation to recharge, unwind, decompress and focus on family, fun and good friends.



Not everyone has all the necessary gear to camp, or the space in his or her vehicle for it. “That’s where our yurts comes in,” said Shelley Barrington, FRVR manager. “Our yurts offer comfy beds, light and heat, and nearby running water, a dish wash station and toilet facilities; all while enabling the campfire-roasted marshmallows that make camping so enjoyable.”

The Fernie RV Resort yurts are fully insulated to withstand winter temperatures and are designed for year-round use. Yurts are warm in the winter, and cool in the summer, with windows and door openings to provide cross ventilation. The atmosphere inside the yurt is one of warmth and security.

The Fernie Forestside Yurts are 6 x 6 metres in size. They are furnished with a queen over queen bunk bed and a twin trundle daybed, all with 8-inch memory foam mattresses. Additional furnishings include a dining table that accommodates up to six people. The yurts are ideal for families up to six or two couples.
