Dip your paddle into the serenity of Whistler’s countless rivers and lakes and drift away. Most of Whistler’s lakeside parks provide canoe and kayak rentals for all day or just an hour during the summer. Otherwise plenty of guided tours from adventure companies are readily available to bring you to secluded areas no one knows about – except Mother Nature.
There’s a tour tailored to your needs whether you’re an expert paddler or want to learn the techniques of canoe and kayak handling. Each tour offering you fantastic views of the Whistler mountains, rivers and even the chance to see wild animals including birds, bears and beavers. Perfect for a single or even the whole family.
Kayak the River of Golden Dreams
Take advantage of kayaking down Whistler’s River of Golden Dreams. It’s a watershed area running from the north end of Alta Lake to the South end of Green Lake and a very popular route. The opportunity to reconnect with nature and see local Whistler wildlife is endless.
Very different than paddling on a lake, it’s a safari under old growth forest trees, beside wild flower lined banks, wildlife and glacier capped mountain views! Nestled in the Whistler Valley you will discover the River of Golden Dreams, a small, generally slow moving flat-water river, which connects Alta Lake to Green Lake. This is truly a trip you don’t want to miss and one of Whistler’s original and most popular activities.
