What You Can Expect

Zipline Adventure in Whistler

What a view!

This zipline tour operates in a true old-growth temperate rainforest, where there is spectacular scenery and amazing views to take in along the way. Your inspiring journey through the forest happens via a combination of suspension bridges, treetop observation platforms, ground based trails and ziplines.

You'll check-in and meet your guides at the Carleton Lodge in the main village across from the Whistler Gondolas.  All guests will be fitted with a custom Ziptrek harness and climbing helmet.

The ziplines are gravity fed, so you do not have to worry about controlling your own speed. Nor do you have to concern yourself with braking, as Ziptrek’s proprietary braking systems allow for a smooth deceleration and finish on each zip. Two tour guides will accompany you on your tour, one guide to connect (launch platform) and one guide to disconnect (landing platform) each and every person.  All tours have the ability to zip hands free and/or upside down for even more of a rush!

Choose from the following two route options:

Bear Tour: 5 Ziplines, 4 Tree-Top Bridges, 2.5-3 Hours

Five incredible ziplines varying in length from 400 feet to over 1,000 feet long connected via a network of canopy bridges and boardwalks. The Bear Tour is perfect for families, groups and those who have never ziplined before. Save $20 by booking Non Peak times Spring to Fall

Eagle Tour: 5 Ziplines, 4 Tree-Top Bridges, 2.5-3 Hours
On the Eagle Tour, you'll get to venture up the Whistler Gondola to your first zipline and then end your adventure by zipping all the way to Whistler Village. A 2,400-foot awe-inspiring dual zipline makes this tour perfect for those who have already experienced ziplining or are seeking even more heart-pounding adrenaline! Save $20 by booking Non Peak times Spring to Fall

What to bring:

  • Dress for the day's weather but be advised that mountain weather can change quickly and unexpectedly. In summer, shorts and T-shirts are often suitable.

  • Participants must be a minimum of 65lbs/30kgs (Bear Tours) or 75lbs/34kgs (Eagle Tours) to a maximum of 275lbs/125kgs. Children less than 65lbs can zip tandem with a guide. Please arrange through Ziptrek's Guest Services immediately following your reservation.
  • Minimum age is 6 years old.
  • Be prepared for light physical exertion and be aware that the tour includes climbing stairs and some hiking.
  • No smoking, drugs or alcohol are permitted on the tour at any time.

A great afternoon outing. It is fast and high and once you start criss crossing the river you can't stop! Staff were phenomenal and the other guests were super. It is the safest scariest thing I have done! Strap your harness on and have fun zipping!
