Bear Awareness Tour

Visit a winter bear denning site and learn about Whistler’s large population of black bears.

Bear Awareness Tour

$149.99 per person

The community of Whistler is home to a large population of black bears. Whistler bears roam freely through the entire valley. It is very common to see bears here, especially in the spring when large numbers of bears leave hibernation and come to the warm valley bottom searching for food.

Join one of our interpretive guides as they share their knowledge about the life cycle of Whistler’s bears on our Bear Awareness Tour. On this tour, we will walk along the edge of the Whistler wetland to a winter bear denning site. We will also explore some of the areas that bears frequent in their search for food. You will learn what to do if you encounter a bear and how Whistler is working toward reducing bear-human conflicts.

Choose to join our Bear Awareness tour with your own private adventure guide on a Private Guided Tour (minimum 2 people) or join in on a Guided Group Tour (minimum 4 people).

All prices are based on a minimum of two/four persons. Group pricing: 6 or more people. Child pricing: 12 years and under.

All guests are required to sign a legal release of liability waiver before participation.

What to Bring / What to Wear

We recommend you wear comfortable clothing suitable for outdoor exercise and close-toed shoes suitable for hiking.


It's always a good idea to bring a waterproof jacket or an additional layer such as a warm sweater as the mountain weather can change quickly - even on sunny days! It's also a good idea to pack sunscreen, a hat, sunglasses, a snack and your camera!


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.
