Amazing options available! which tour is for you?
Ziptrek Ecotours is the pioneer of zipline tours in North America! With an award winning ecological curriculum and the highest, longest, and most ziplines around, Ziptrek offers an entertaining combination of aerial adventure and exploration.
Starting with a single tour in Whistler in 2002, there are now multiple tour offerings available throughout the year. With tours designed for virtually all ages and abilities, there is an exciting tour option suitable for everyone.
Operating in a true old-growth temperate rainforest, there is spectacular scenery and amazing views to take in along the way. Your inspiring journey through the forest happens via a combination of suspension bridges, treetop observation platforms, ground based trails and ziplines.
Guests check-in and meet their guides at the Carleton Lodge in the main village across from the Whistler Gondolas. (The only exception is The Sasquatch® where the check-in occurs at our kiosk at the base of Blackcomb). All guests will be fitted with a custom Ziptrek harness and climbing helmet.
The ziplines are gravity fed, so guests do not have to worry about controlling their own speed. Nor do they have to concern themselves with braking, as Ziptrek’s proprietary braking systems allow for a smooth deceleration and finish on each zip. Two tour guides will accompany guests on their tour, one guide to connect (launch platform) and one guide to disconnect (landing platform) each and every guest.
The educational component provides a unique insight into the surrounding environment on both a local and global scale. Meanwhile, the ziplines provide an adrenaline rush like no other!
