    Our day was perfect for a canoe ride, We went down the lake and paddled back up against the strong wind, making our return later than expected and the staff were nice and didn’t charge us for the extra time taken coming back to drop off the canoe. Very good staff!

What to Bring / What to Wear

We recommend you wear clothing that you could get wet, as well as a hat, sunglasses and close-toed footwear that can get wet.


It's always a good idea to bring a waterproof jacket or a warm sweater as the mountain weather can change quickly - even on sunny days! It's also a good idea to pack a towel, a change of clothes, sunscreen and a snack.


Don't forget your camera to capture your adventure! You can store it safely in a provided dry bag when you're not using it.


We ask that you please bring your own reusable water bottle - we're working to reduce plastic waste. Did you know that Whistler has some of the cleanest and freshest tap water in the world? Our alpine-fresh water supply comes from beautiful Rainbow Lake which is fed by ancient glaciers. However, if you require, bottled water is available for purchase at our Village Office.
