Summer Activities and Events in Whistler

Whistler may be known for its skiing and snowboarding but summers offer endless options for outdoor activities and fun for the entire family.

Take to the water with a kayaking or white-water rafting tour, or spend a lazy warm afternoon fishing along some of British Columbia's best lakes and streams. Craving adventure? Why not try Zip-Trek, test your nerve at Whistler Bungee, or experience a whole new level of fun with an ATV tour through the mud pit after it rains!

Get back in touch with nature and enjoy the incredible mountain landscapes with a guided hiking or sightseeing tour. Keep your eyes peeled - maybe you'll see one of our local black bears enjoying a gourmet meal of fresh berries. Don't blink and you might see Whistler's namesake - one of the many Hoary Marmots that call the local mountains home!
