Top 3 Restaurant & Activity Picks in Whistler

Premier Horgan announced on June 24th, 2020 that British Columbia is now in Phase 3 which means safe travels are now authorized in our Province. Whistler is gently reopening and we’re here to give you the best spots to dine and activities to do on your serene summer getaway to Whistler.


Summertime in Whistler is all about adventuring. Whether it be on one of Whistler’s five lakes, on the mountain trails, biking, or one of the countless toured activities you can participate in, Whistler has it all!

SUP in Whistler

Experience the mountains and the lake at the same time when you go to Alta Lake. Surrounding the lake you will find many parks and spots to enjoy the water. Want to get out on open waters but aren’t sure how? Whistler Eco Tours offers a variety of water sport rentals on Alta Lake, but the most notable one is their stand-up paddle board. On a calm morning in the summer, this is the perfect activity to take in the beautiful scenery of Whistler with views of Whistler Blackcomb at the far side of the lake.


Looking to be adventurous during your time in Whistler? Canadian Wilderness is open and ready to host you for an ATV tour in Whistler’s backcountry. Their Call of the Wild Tour is perfect for intermediate riders looking to take in the breathtaking scenery of Whistler’s backyard. To learn more about ATV tours in Whistler and book your stay, contact Guest Services.


Whistler has a vast bike trail network with the largest one being the Valley Trail. This easy paved path is perfect for a bike or long walk. This 40km trail can be started and finished from anywhere so don’t worry about completing the whole trail! It connects Whistler’s neighbourhoods, lakes, and makes for a great leisurely day activity. Dogs are welcome but need to remain on a leash. Contact Guest Services for information on bike rentals.


There’s nothing quite like a sunny day on a restaurant patio in Whistler while you take in the fresh mountain air after a day adventuring outdoors.

Basalt Wine & Salumeria P: Darby Magill

Celebrate the Summer with Basalt Wine & Salumeria! Basalt has one of the best patios around, right on the Village Stroll, and just below The Crystal. Enjoy a glass of BC wine, charcuterie board, and their classic fondues. On the weekends, this makes for a delicious brunch spot before kicking off your day! Basalt is scheduled to open June 25, 2020.


The Beacon will officially reopen on June 25, 2020. Enjoy local craft beer, epic happy hour, and fulfill that pub craving after exploring Whistler. The best part is that it is right below The Crystal and in the centre of Whistler Village.


Table Nineteen’s newly renovated Clubhouse will be the place to visit this Summer! Located at Nicklaus North Golf Course, take in the stunning views of the mountains, lake, and golf course all from one your table outdoors! The lakeside patio is about the best place you could be on a sunny Summer day in Whistler.
