Save time and let us plan an effective and memorable event for your group.
Join us for the highlight of your summer (yes, SUMMER) vacation to Whistler. Previously only at the Columbia Icefield near Jasper and Banff could you have the opportunity to actually set foot on real Canadian glaciers. And even then you really only got to experience what has become a glacier parking lot, full of diesel buses and hundreds of people. Here's your opportunity to actually walk in solitude on incredible glaciers during the comfort of summer, high up above scenic Whistler Village.
The summer affords the opportunity for regular folks like you to experience something only hard core adventurers get to enjoy in the winter. Our glacier can offer clear sunny days perfect for that family photo in the snow high above Whistler Village. Travel with our fun, professional guides to areas you could only imagine. We'll supply all of your necessary gear and offer low guest to guide ratios. We look forward to showing you something not many get to experience in a lifetime.

Our most popular glacier tour. Journey up Blackcomb Mountain to the remote and spectacular Horstman Glacier at 7000 feet for Whistler's only mountain-top glacier walk experience. Fun for all ages and abilities, this is a delightful eco-adventure full of interest and excitement. This casual glacier walk brings you back to the formation of the Coast Mountains. Learn about glaciology and ice formation, and receive instruction about walking with crampons and an ice axe on a glacier. This tour is a "must do" during any summer trip to Whistler.
Whistler's most exciting adventure! Experience this unique and exhilarating climbing excursion to the summit of Whistler Peak. "Via Ferrata" is Italian for "Iron Way" and is an engineered vertical pathway with permanently fixed cables for protection and metal ladder rungs to ease your movement over the rock. This tour combines glacier hiking with mountain climbing. Your guide will give you detailed instructions on use of equipment and technique for ascending. Negotiate your way across Whistler glacier using crampons and an ice axe to the base of the Via Ferrata route. Using a special lanyard system you will clip yourself onto the cable and climb the rock headwall using a series of ladder rungs that lead you to the summit of Whistler Peak.
Hiking has a new meaning! Experience the thrill of alpinism in a safe environment for beginners. Learn the basics of ice axe and crampon techniques, self arrests, glacier travel skills and rope handling. Glacier rendonnee is a unique way to enjoy the mountain and experience how it feels to be standing on thousand's of years old moving ice rivers! Equipped with crampons, ice axe, harness, and helmet, you can enjoy the moment and forget about the rest of the world!
The fly-in, fly-out combines the excitement of walking on a glacier and the thrill of a helicopter flight. Equipped with your glacier gear, you board the helicopter for your first flight over the awe-inspiring Coast Mountains toward your glacier destination. After 15 minutes of breathtaking flight time, with butterflies in your stomach, you arrive at the landing area. The adrenaline rushes through your body as your mouth drops in view of the unexplainable beauty of this glacier land. The rest is easy! Strap on a pair of crampons, grab an ice axe, and go explore.
