Kayaking & Canoeing

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.
