Glacier Hike

One of our most popular tours!

On the Glacier Hike your guide will lead you across glacial snow and ice into the Whistler Bowl. You will be led on a short-roped mountaineering ascent of the alpine bowl - like how all of the world's great peaks were traditionally climbed! Learn about glaciology and how to travel on and climb a glacier while recognizing and avoiding crevasses. At the top enjoy the stunning alpine vistas and world-class photo opportunities before descending. 

This truly is a must-do day activity for anyone enjoying the pacific coastal mountains

No experience is necessary on this safe and fun Canadian trek.

The tour will cover roughly 4km of mountain terrain and up to 200m of glacier hiking and climbing.

Your guide will establish a slow and steady pace throughout the tour; nevertheless a moderate level of fitness is recommended.

As with all activities in the beautiful Canadian Alpine each day is subject to varying mountain conditions - ask our staff what the mountain has in store for you and your visit!
