Wild Wandering in Whistler

By: Austin Adventures March 12, 2012

Your adventurous spirit will be ignited in Whistler. Located in British Columbia in Canada, Whistler is a favorite spot for family adventure vacations. There are many fun activities the entire family can enjoy. You may start by exploring the Alice Lake Provincial Park, which is surrounded by mountains and forests. There are different hiking trails you can follow with varying degree of difficulty. The Four Lakes Trail, for example, leads you to a cedar forest while passing through four lake areas. Be prepared to spot birds like chickadees and robins and meet animals like chipmunks and squirrels.

Bike your way along the Valley trail to reach Meadow Park. Stop and relax awhile, and let the kids enjoy the playground and water park. Head back towards the village and enjoy the scenic route with the spectacular view of the Whistler and Blackcomb mountains.

Many adventure vacation packages to Whistler involve a trek to the summit of the Whistler Mountain to get a panoramic view of the glaciers and the meadows below. You can canoe or kayak along the River of Golden Dreams and discover interesting things in nature. Take your adventurous spirit to a new level by trying exhilarating activities like bungee jumping, whitewater rafting, and gyroscope rides. Kids will enjoy the bungee trampoline, balloon slides, and horseback riding.

Adventure vacations in Whistler pump up your adrenaline. Your vacation will never have a dull moment when you travel with Austin Adventures!
