Family Summer Holidays in Whistler

Whistler usually rhymes with winter, but the region is also teeming with fun family activities during the summer months: trekking, mountain-biking, zip-lining… There are also numerous lakes where you can frolic in the sand, play a game of volley-ball with the locals, stroll through the forest or just relax! If you still want to experience snow that is also possible: just head higher up the mountains and admire the alpine views from way up top!

Whistler is truly paradise for those seeking fun family activities in the great outdoors.
