Take a tour down the River of Golden Dreams in a canoe, kayak or double kayak. Enjoy the glacier fed waters while learning about the history and nature of Whistler. Choose from guided or self-guided tours. Would you prefer a combination of canoeing and bike riding? Choose a Pedal & Paddle Tour. Paddle your way down the lake and meet up with your bike. Explore the trails your guide takes you on, when cycling back to the village.
This 1-2 your hike will bring you to an amazing grove of ancient cedars. The diameter of some which could link the arms of 10-15 persons! The access road is just outside Whistler and unpaved, but manageable in most rental cars. It is through old growth forest with beautiful mossy carpeting and ferns.

Zip trekking is an all-year round activity suitable for anyone wanting an immediate rush. Reach speeds of up to 80 km (55 mi.) p/h and enjoy an educational tour from experienced guides. For those who prefer less fast-pacing movement, but still want an educational tour, explore the forest on Whistler‘s own tree trek walk. Reach heights at approximately 200 feet above ground.

On average, a game lasts approximately 20 minutes, with average play time of 2 […]
