Kayaking & Canoeing
Family kayaking (Dave Heath photo)
The four-season resort community of Whistler offers numerous kayaking and canoeing opportunities on placid lakes surrounded by glacier-capped Coast Mountain peaks.
More kayaking and canoeing is available nearby in Vancouver and the Vancouver, Coast and Mountains region.
The Whistler Valley is home to five freshwater lakes that lure kayakers and canoeists all summer long. Highlights include Green Lake and Alta Lake. Don’t miss the River of Golden Dreams.
All of Whistler's lakes are in close proximity to the Village and are accessible by car, public bus, bicycle and foot. Guided tour companies often provide transportation from Whistler Village to the various paddling destinations.
Where to Canoe and Kayak
Just north of Whistler Village, Green Lake's aquamarine waters and forest-lined shores give way to spectacular views of local mountains. The lake's rainbow trout, kokanee, and Dolly Varden make for some great fishing opportunities, too.

The River of Golden Dreams is a flat water serpentine river that winds it's way from Alta to Green Lake in Whistler. No rapids, just some ripple, but the twists and turns will keep you wondering what's around the next corner. Beaver, beaver dams and lodges, eagles, osprey, river otter, black bears, birds that burst off the water in front of your boat and glacier capped mountain views. Warm up on the lake to start then enter the river. Guides are recommended. This trip has been offered for over 100 years and is an annual event for many resort guests.
