  • This journey will take paddlers 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 along the way.

8. Disc golfing is popular and easy for everyone!

  • Disc golfers will enjoy many of the mountain and valley views while on the course which is only 30 minute walk from the hotel.
  • Best of all, it is free to play!

9. Float plane glacier tour with Harbour Air.

  • Leave from Green Lake, fly over Whistler Village, Whistler and Blackcomb Mountains, Cheakamus Lake, Black Tusk and some incredible glacier views is all part of the “up-lifting” tour.

10. Patio time at Dubh Linn Gate Irish Pub.

  • Located at the base of both Whistler and Blackcomb Mountains, there is no place better than the patio of Dubh Linn Gate Irish Pub to people watch, enjoy the lazy afternoons and then tuck into a pint… with a side order of music and fun.
