River of Golden Dreams

A visit to Whistler would not be complete without a paddle down the River of Golden Dreams.  This journey will take you across Alta Lake through the Whistler wetlands down a scenic glacier river. Learn about Whistler’s history, geography, flora, and fauna. Choose between a canoe or single or double kayak.  Our knowledgeable and qualified adventure guides will show you paddling techniques. Water levels are always changing and this tour is always an adventure, be it fast moving water in the spring or obstacles like beaver dams in late summer.
*PLEASE NOTE: In late summer (approx. from mid-august onward) the River is running low and there is a mandatory portage. The Green Lake Adventure Tour is a good substitute.
