A great adventure to do while in Whistler and good way to see the beauty you are surrounded by. The team we had were very knowledgeable about the area and the animals that live on the mountains. I was pleased to hear what Ziptrek Ecotours is doing to ensure their footprint is as small as possible in the wilderness. I have done this tour before and love bring my friends to Whistler and will continue to suggest this adventure.
