River of Golden Dreams Pedal & Paddle Combo

$175 per person
5 hours

Experience the best of both worlds with our River of Golden Dreams Pedal and Paddle Combo Tour. Our combo tours begin and end at our Whistler Village location and combine a paddling adventure with a bike ride along the Valley Trail.

On this tour, you will pedal to Alta Lake along the Valley Trail on a bike of your choice. At Wayside Park swap your bike for a canoe or kayak and embark on a paddling adventure across Alta Lake, through the Whistler Wetlands and down the scenic glacial river aptly-named ‘The River of Golden Dreams’. Your bike will be waiting for you at the end of your paddle. Follow the Valley Trail back to the Village to complete your journey through the beautiful Whistler Valley.

Choose to embark on this Pedal and Paddle Combo tour with your own private adventure guide on a Private Guided Tour, join in on a Guided Group Tour or take the plunge and explore on your own terms on a Self-Guided Tour (prior paddling and biking experience required).

*PLEASE NOTE: In late summer, typically from mid July onwards, the River of Golden Dreams runs at significantly lower water levels and there is a mandatory 600 m portage in place.

What to Bring / What to Wear

We recommend you wear clothing that you could get wet, as well as a hat, sunglasses and close-toed footwear that can get wet. It's always a good idea to bring a waterproof jacket or a warm sweater as the mountain weather can change quickly - even on sunny days! It's also a good idea to pack a towel, a change of clothes, sunscreen and a snack.

 

For biking, we encourage our guests to bring a hat or bandana to wear underneath the helmet for comfort/hygiene. Have your own gear? You're welcome to use your own bike/helmet on the tour if you prefer.

 

Don't forget your camera to capture your adventure! You can store it safely in a provided dry bag when you're not using it.

 

We ask that you please bring your own reusable water bottle - we're working to reduce plastic waste. Did you know that Whistler has some of the cleanest and freshest tap water in the world? Our alpine-fresh water supply comes from beautiful Rainbow Lake which is fed by ancient glaciers. However, if you require, bottled water is available for purchase at our Village Office.
