Summer time in the Whistler Valley is all about great value! The price of dining, shopping and Whistler accommodations drop and there is actually more to see and do in the summer time then in the winter months. In the summer, there is more daylight, so there is more time to take it all in. Many of the best Whistler summer activities are free such as the great hiking and biking trails and dozens of picturesque mountain lakes to visit throughout the valley. Whistler is also home to arguably the best mountain bike park on the planet, a handful of world class golf courses as well as so many other summer activity options we couldn’t possibly list them all. Some of our staff favorites in Whistler are whitewater rafting, fishing, canoeing, bungee jumping, zip lining, ATVing, animal watching, mountaineering and rock climbing.
