Highlights / General details
For those who love the education and stunning treetop vistas of the river valley below but aren't quite as adventurous are invited to take our TreeTrek Canopy Walk. TreeTrek is a fully guided ecology based tour that takes guests through the treetops on a series of suspension bridges and observation platforms. As with Ziptrek, while on course guests are able to see first-hand the difference in forest composition between the ancient, old growth forests and the second generation forests that exist in the area. It is the ideal site for interactive learning and outdoor adventure exploration.
TreeTrek guests enjoy an even stronger focus on ecology and sustainability material in the same stunning and inspiring locale. For some, the gentle sway of the suspension bridges offers the same exhilaration as riding a zipline does for others!
Aerial forest exploration 200' above the waters of Fitzsimmons Creek and the valley that divides Whistler and Blackcomb Mountains.
Treetop viewing platforms, suspension bridges, forest boardwalks and interpretive signage.
Guided family-friendly adventure for all ages.
9 treetop bridges; Complimentary shuttle from Whistler Village; Harnesses and helmets will be provided. Rainwear, mitts and winter boots provided upon request.
