River of Golden Dreams - Guided Canoe Tour

Voted Whistler’s number one thing to do, not only by visitors but by the locals! An enchanting journey from lake to lake, the River of Golden Dreams is a summertime classic. Begin your adventure by paddling across the historic Alta Lake where you will pass the original site of Myrtle Phillip’s summer fishing resort. Following families of ducks and geese into the lush river mouth you’ll paddle through flowing lilies and around bends of overhanging greenery. Flowing with the current, you can lounge lazily along with just a few strokes to steer through narrow passages. As the river opens up again on the other side you’ll get picked up on the shore of glacier fed Green Lake.

  • Each tour is 3 hours round trip
  • Must be 14+ years old
  • Must be able to ride a bike
  • From $218 per person
