Canadian Wilderness Adventures Whistler Showshoe Tours


Canadian Wilderness Adventures Whistler Showshoe Tours


The best way to experience a truly Whistler winter wonderland is by snowshoe! A perfect activity for families and groups, snowshoeing offers the chance to embrace nature amongst stunning views, while spotting birds and animals who call the area home. Breath in the fresh mountain air and journey through the breathtaking Callaghan Valley as your guide leads you deep into an old-growth forest, passing alongside Salish Totem Poles.


Randy took us on an amazing snowshoe adventure. He catered the excursion to the ability level of the group so we had an adventurous off trail tour of the rain forest and Medicine Trail. It was a fun, exhilarating and beautiful experience.
