Best-known for its downhill skiing, snowboarding and winter wonderland activities, Whistler is actually a year-round destination that's perfect for hikers, ramblers and backpackers.
Alpine meadows, sprawling glaciers and indigenous wildlife are just some of the wonders to experience on Whistler's hiking and walking trails.
During the summer months, the snows of North America's leading ski resort give way to a vast variety of hiking trails that spread across the valley and up the slopes of its surrounding summits. The PEAK 2 PEAK Gondola makes it simple to explore trails on both Whistler Peak and Blackcomb Mountain.
Or enjoy a gentle stroll along the Whistler Valley Trail, which is easy to access from the Village. Along the way, stop to inspect wildflowers, find places to picnic, play, swim, camp, bird watch and take in stunning views across glacial lakes.
Feeling adventurous? Try heli-hiking at Whistler to walk on a glacier or hike along rocky ridges.
