What You Can Expect

Whistler Snowshoe Adventure

Snowshoeing in Callaghan Valley

Make your way to Whistler Village, the jumping-off point for your 3-hour snowshoeing excursion. 

After a brief orientation, strap into your provided snowshoes, and follow your adventure guide into the quiet, snowy forest. Take advantage of the mobility that the snowshoes provide, trekking over deep snowdrifts and in between snowed-in trees. Hike along the Medicine Trail, stopping to sample tea leaves and hear about their medicinal properties. Keep hydrated with water provided by your guide. 

Deep in the old-growth forest, learn about the history of the Callaghan Valley. Admire the giant hemlock, fir, and cedar trees that form a forest canopy high above. 

After your heart-pumping trek is over, sit with your group by the fire for some tea and trail bars. 

Please Note: This hike is appropriate for those with a moderate fitness level, eight years and older.

A great chance to experience the deafening silence and spectacular scenery of the Callaghan Valley. Stomping though feet of fresh snow, learning about the region's rich heritage and enjoying a little break from the pistes. Bliss! Heartily recommended.

We had a perfect day, was really good although would have been better with a smaller group. Fifteen walking single file was hard to hear commentary as it is single file. Great experience though
