Explore + Experience: The Untamed Kootenays await!

Island Lake Lodge throws open the doors on the summer season this weekend, inviting you to indulge in some of the Kootenays’ finest culinary and spa experiences.

Set against a breathtaking backdrop of mountains, lake and forest, Island Lake is renowned as a summer destination for foodies, hikers, bikers and travellers alike.

Here’s a look at why, and what’s new this season!

Savour the Untamed Kootenays

Island Lake Lodge serves up a delicious opening to the summer season with the third annual Untamed Kootenays Culinary Event June 8.

Savour a true forest-to-table experience in the Tamarack Dining Room, where Island Lake’s Chef Keith Farkas welcomes guest chefs Roy Oh of Calgary’s Anju and Italy’s Andrea Campi, who will create amazing cuisine from ingredients sourced and foraged from the surrounding Elk Valley.

The popular annual event underscores the resort’s reputation as one of the premiere choices for dining in Fernie, and launches the new summer menus that will delight guests throughout the season.

And for a weekend-long immersive mountain experience, the Lodge’s two-night package includes two impressive dinners, plus an opportunity to forage with chefs on a guided hike to find ingredients like fiddleheads and stinging nettles. Visit the spa, then relax on the patio with exclusive samplings from Fernie Brewing Co. and BC Wine Studio – the winemakers behind the Lodge’s house wines and signature bubbles.

Sensational spa experiences

Surrounded by nature, there’s no better place to recharge than The Spa at Island Lake Lodge, boasting a deserved reputation as one of the premium spas in Fernie, with six treatment rooms, retail boutique, serene relaxation room and outdoor sauna.

This season, the spa shares new packages designed to revitalize body, mind and spirit.

Soak in the relaxing luxury of a 2.5-hour Cedar Retreat, unwinding with a calming lavender foot-bath before an organic coconut oil, salt & sugar scrub offers a full-body glow. A warm mountain water rinse and full body application of SOCO Soaps hydrating body butter follows, before your individualized 90-minute therapeutic massage.

Or maybe Mountain Harmony calls? Release the day’s tension as you enjoy a Harmony Facial massage using skin-loving local products, then awaken your senses with a eucalyptus and mint footbath, preparing your feet for a luxurious Spa Pedicure.

Looking for something a little more personalized? Craft your ideal experience from the spa’s a-la-carte treatments.

A season of adventure awaits

In welcoming the new season, this is your chance to explore the full summer of adventures awaiting at Island Lake Lodge. The lower trails, including the Lake Trail and Old Growth Trail, will open this weekend, with more opening in the weeks to come. Come explore!
