Whistler Summer Attractions: 4 Activities for Thrill-seekers

Tree Adventures Tours

Discover a world of excitement while suspended in the trees. Course includes tightropes, plank bridges, ziplines, swinging logs, cargo nets, tree ladders and more, suitable for various fitness levels. While the Ziptrek option appeals to everyone, thrill-seekers should book the Superfly course. This option only operates in the summer and allows guests to travel from tree to tree, and increase in height and difficulty.

TreeTrek Eco-Tour
