Hiking at Whistler

Whistler Canada Tourist Information

There are many wonderful hikes to do in the Whistler area.  In general, one can either enjoy a leisurely hike through the valley or a more vigorous trek in the high mountains.

Consider catching a gondola up the mountainside and starting your hike from Roundhouse Lodge.  The view is amazing!

Please remember to wear warm clothes on mountain hikes, as the temperature is lower in the mountains than in Whistler.

For people in top physical condition, the hike to the Joffre Lake glacier at Joffre Lake Provincial Park is spectacular.
