Bald Eagles in a tree
Visitors are often treated to an appearance by Whistler's local wildlife while exploring the area's valleys, slopes, forests, creeks and rivers.
Bears are seen roaming the valley trails or foraging on the mountain slopes. Sightings of deer, marmots and other animals are also common.
Self-guided tours and hikes are an easy way to see wildlife – take a gondola ride up the mountain to spot bears or deer foraging on grass and berries, or hike into the alpine where small mammals and birds like pikas and whiskey jacks congregate. Bird watching for eagles is popular in Brackendale, south of Whistler.
Guided Whistler bear-watching tours are also available, while a guided canoe tour is a great introduction to the fish (such as rainbow trout and kokanee salmon), waterfowl and marine animals that live in Whistler's lakes and streams.
