Green Lake Adventure Paddle
Begin the tour by paddling the last section of the River of Golden Dreams – a beautifully quiet portion of the river with plenty of flowing water. Then you will enter the magnificent turquoise-coloured Green Lake. Paddle across this stunning glacial lake to the Parkhurst site – nicknamed Whistler’s Ghost Town. Here we will step out of the boats and discover a forgotten, graffitied relic of the past hidden in the woods along the edge of Green Lake.
The Green Lake Adventure Paddle is a great alternative to our River of Golden Dreams tour when the river levels are low in late summer.
Choose to paddle Green Lake with your own private adventure guide on a Private Guided Tour, join in on a Guided Group Tour or take the plunge and explore the lake on your own terms on a Self-Guided Tour (prior paddling experience required).
Prior paddling experience is required for self-guided tours. A rescue fee of $75 per person applies.
All prices are based on a minimum of two 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 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.
