This Whistler canoe journey will take you across Alta Lake through the Whistler Wetlands down a scenic glacier river and then out into magnificent Green Lake. Learn about Whistler’s history, geography, flora, and fauna. Joining you in your canoe or double kayak, our knowledgeable and qualified guides will show you paddling techniques and help you navigate the waters.

Tour Tip

You may see wildlife so bring your waterproof camera.

Our canoe guides provide a lot of information and instruction, but they don’t dare give away their bug repellent, bring your own!

Out on the river, there is very little shade. Protect your skin.
