Experiences in Whistler

Whistler is one of the outdoor capitals of the world and there is no shortage of fun here for active families

For spectacular alpine views of the glaciers the Peak2Peak Gondala ride is a must, taking you between the Whistler and Blackcomb peaks. Pack the binoculars and keep your eyes peeled for black bears which roam the mountains. Once you reach the top you can access some wonderful hiking trails.

The beautiful pristine lakes are a water lover’s paradise with kayaking, stand-up paddle and sailing. Some also have sandy beaches and swimming areas, the perfect spot to enjoy a picnic and a refreshing dip on a warm summer’s day.

Mountain biking is a very popular pastime in Whistler with all abilities catered for. You can follow the Valley Trail which is a family-friendly 40km long trail of paved track or enjoy a gentle cycle through the resort centre. While for more experienced cyclists there are plenty of white-knuckle mountain descents!

For an even bigger adrenaline rush fly through the forest on an exhilarating zip-line tour. The Ziptrek Bear Tour is perfect for families and first-time zippers! Four ziplines joined by a network of suspension bridges, boardwalks and trails whizz you through the treetops. Or, for a zip-line adventure you won’t forget in a hurry, ride the Sasquatch – 1 monster zipline which is the longest in all of Canada and the USA!

Whistler is a great setting for a white water rafting and there are family-friendly trips down the Cheakamus River along with some of Canada’s most thrilling rapids for more experienced rafters. You might even be lucky enough to get a glimpse of the local wildlife which is often spotted along the river’s edge.

After all that adventure Whistler Village’s pedestrian-only centre is a wonderful place to relax and enjoy the shops and restaurants.
