Alta Lake, Lost Lake, Green Lake and Nita Lake. The four main lakes in Whistler have clean, emerald green water and provide one of the best water activity spots in BC. Here are our top five Water Activities to do in Whistler this Summer.

Whitewater Rafting

Ready to get your adrenaline pumping with a thrilling high-speed adventure? Ride the river rapids fed from the mountains, through the valley, on a fast, exciting Whitewater rafting tour. CANADIAN OUTBACK ADVENTURES has some of the best rafting tours in Whistler. You can choose from a challenging, adrenaline-infused run down the Elaho or Squamish rivers. Stretch your boundaries, get out there, and live life on the edge.

SUP (Stand-Up-Paddle)

If you’ve been wanting to try Stand-Up-Paddleboarding, Alpha Lake is the best place to try it out. Alpha lake is located at the southern end of Whistler Valley in the Creekside neighbourhood.   If you’d like to enjoy a lake day with your furry best friend, Alpha Lake Park is dog friendly and located right on the lake. Enjoy introducing new water activities with your dog in a safe environment. You can rent Stand-Up-Paddle Boards at Whistler Eco Tours, plus they have guided tours.

Kayaking is one of the best water activities for all ages, from children to adults. Paddling by yourself provides a sense of freedom and paddling with your family or partner is an opportunity to spend time closer together. You can rent a Kayak at Backroads Whistler in Lakeside Park.
