Polar Peek Books is locally owned and operated since 1993. We are located in a beautifully restored turn of the century building in Historic Downtown Fernie. The Lizard Range, including Polar Peak (our name sake) creates a most spectacular backdrop to Fernie’s Victoria Ave. (2nd ave), the heart of this mountain town.
If you want to explore Fernie and area we are your information destination with local hiking/biking maps and guidebooks. We stock the nature guide books you will need as well as local history books, gift books and postcards. We have a great selection of interesting titles to choose from for your reading pleasure, including fiction, outdoor adventure, current affairs, spirituality and health, to name a few.
Our vibrant children’s section is filled with books, award winning toys and treasures handpicked for their quality and character. Polar Peek Books is proud to offer a “special order” service for books you are having trouble finding or we do not regularly carry. We do our best to locate the book get your order here within 2 weeks.
We also represent four local artists who show their original artwork in the shop.
We invite you to come have a “peek” at Polar Peek Books and Treasures.
