The fall in Whistler is a great time of year! The changing landscape is beautiful, the crowds are lighter and there are so many great activities and events going on. Check out these great things to do for family fall fun in Whistler:
While the fall weather in the Coast Mountains can be a bit variable, as long as you’re dressed for the weather, you can get outside! As the snow has not yet hit the valley, most valley-level and lower alpine hiking, walking and biking trails are still easily accessible. Take in the beauty of the landscape with a walk through the woods or on the Valley Trail.
The Valley Trail in Whistler is a great way to explore some of the lakes and beaches in Whistler. This network of trails offers over 40 kilometres of multi-use paths the stretches across Whistler.
Take a Tour
There are some great tours available in the fall in Whistler.
Whistler Blackcomb, Whistler Photo Safaris and Whistler Discovery Tours all offer bear viewing tours. Most of these tours wrap up in October though, so be sure to head to Whistler in the early fall if you plan on catching sight of the bears before they tuck away for winter hibernation.
A great way to see the changing landscape is a helicopter tour. Blackcomb Helicopters offers a range of helicopter tours varying in length and destination.
Starting in the fall, the majestic bald eagles make their way to the Brackendale area to feed on salmon and spend the winter. Canadian Outback Rafting and Squamish Rafting Company offer family-friendly float tours for eagle viewing. Float down the river and learn about these graceful birds and the nature around them.
When you want to head outside, there are some fun indoor activities in Whistler.
Arts Whistler has a full-on fall calendar of great concerts, workshops, and events for the whole family. Check out their Fall for Arts event calendar here.
Another great indoor activity is Escape! Whistler. Race against the clock to solve puzzles and riddles in order to “escape” from one of four themed rooms. A great activity for the whole family.
