Return Details

Returns to original departure point
The River of Golden Dreams (officially Alta Creek) in Whistler features the epic scenery of British Columbia, best seen by boat. This 3-hour guided canoe tour during summertime provides views around every bend.

 

Make your way to the Carleton Lodge in Whistler, and check in 15 to 30 minutes before your scheduled departure time. A 10-minute shuttle-bus ride later, arrive at Alta Lake.

 

Begin with a safety briefing and learn various paddling strokes. Then, hop into your canoe and set off into the water. Your guide will accompany you in a separate canoe.

 

Paddle through flowing lilies and around overhanging greenery along the aptly named River of Golden Dreams. Pass by the original site of Myrtle Phillip's summer fishing resort. Families of ducks and geese glide along next to you as you head into the river’s mouth.

Take advantage of the creek’s current, and steer through its narrow passages with just a few strokes. As the river opens up again on the other side, you'll get picked up on the shore of the glacier-fed Green Lake.

 

Your 3-hour tour ends with transport back to the Carleton Lodge.

This was a great experience. The scenery was gorgeous, saw lots of bird life and enjoyed the tranquility of the river. My guide Kyle (K1) was patient and always kept an eye on everyone's safety and progress of their paddling skills. I would thoroughly recommend this tour.
