Whistler Hiking & Sightseeing

Whistler HikingIt isn't just the top of the world up here... it's another world. Take a scenic gondola ride to the Roundhouse Lodge where a short walk and an open air chairlift ride will bring you to the Peak of Whistler Mountain.

The Whistler Peak Adventure

Whether you are looking for an epic adventure or a great view while having lunch, this is the place to find it. Pick up a Summer Trail Map for descriptions and directions or take a free mountain tour, offered daily at 11:30am.

Whistler Mountain's wilderness offers a wonderful opportunity for hiking and walking. Learn about the ecology of diverse ecosystems from experienced naturalist guides and take in the incredible scenery.

Our established hiking trails are located on Whistler Mountain, however, sightseeing is available on Blackcomb Mountain until July 27, 2008. Access is via the Wizard and Solar Coaster Chairlifts, then a bus ride to the 7th Heaven Express. Hours of operation: 12pm to 3pm.  Uploading from the Wizard Express begins at 11am.

Whistler Alpine Hiking

Alpine forest, snow-capped peaks and indigenous wildlife are just some of the wonders you'll experience on Whistler's hiking and walking trails.

You can stop to inspect wildflowers on a short trail or try an overnight backcountry adventure, sleeping under stars in the high alpine. You'll find places to picnic, play, swim, camp and bird watch on our trails as well as to take in stunning views across glacial lakes.

If you're feeling adventurous, trek challenging back routes with a personal guide, or clamp on your boots and crampons to investigate glaciers.

For high-spirited explorers, try Whistler's heli-hiking. You'll hike across rolling meadows against a backdrop of breathtaking mountain vistas.
