Twilight Tour

Ziplining

Ziptrek Ecotours Inc.

Experience the thrill of the night on the newly enhanced Twilight Tour! With only a head lamp and the soft glow of twinkling lights strung along tree-top platforms and suspension bridges you can let your imagination run wild as you soar through the night on this unique Whistler winter adventure. This is the ultimate way to experience the old growth rainforest under the stars.

What you can expect

Guests will be met by their tour guides and fitted with their harnesses, helmets and headlamps before taking a complimentary shuttle from Whistler Village to the base on Blackcomb Mountain. The shuttle takes approximately ten minutes by van. Guests will zipline between the two mountains directly over the river.

The ziplines are gravity fed, so guests do not have to worry about controlling their own speed. Two 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!
