Best Ways to Connect with Nature in Whistler this Spring

Connecting with nature is good for the soul and Whistler is one of the best places in the world to do this. With serene valleys, mountains, lakes, and forests, Whistler is the ultimate destination for those wanting to recharge and connect more deeply with nature. Taking in the majestic scenery of Whistler at a slower pace is an incredible way to build deeper connections with loved ones and the natural features that make Whistler so epic. One of the best ways to do this is to allow seasoned locals to guide you through the landscape. Guided tours are our favourite ways to connect with nature this spring, so we rounded up our top three we highly recommend for you and your loved ones!

Bear Tours

If you visit Whistler between May and October, chances are you will see majestic black bears on your vacation. Guided Bear Tours are one of the best ways to take in the natural beauty of Whisler’s backcountry, while safely gazing at these wild creatures from a distance. We highly recommend the Whistler Photo Safaris, operating out of Whistler Olympic Park, the site of the 2010 Winter Olympics and Paralympic Games. A comfortable 4×4 will take you from the bustle of Whistler Village to the serene and peaceful Callaghan Valley. There you’ll be guided by bear experts and enjoy a quiet morning or evening gazing at the beautiful bears with your loved ones.

Hiking Tours

Hiking Tours are the perfect way to experience the natural beauty of Whistler at your own pace. Exploring some of the most wondrous terrain found anywhere in the world is truly one of the best ways to experience nature this spring in Whistler. You’ll take in the magnitude of old-growth forests, glacial lakes, alpine meadows, and endless views. Whistler is a hiker’s paradise, but even if you aren’t a seasoned hiker, you can join one of the incredible tours with Tag Whistler and let a seasoned local guide you through the meditative forests and landscapes of Whistler with your loved one. We can say from experience, that this will create a deeper connection with the natural landscape of Whistler and build a bond with the land we’re so fortunate to recreate in.

Bike Tours

If you’d prefer two wheels to take in the natural beauty of Whistler, we highly recommend a bike tour as a way to gain a deeper understanding and connection to Whistler. These tours are family and beginner-friendly, and they meander through the Whistler Valley via the Valley Trail, stopping at the beautiful lakes and vistas along the way. When booking with Whistler Eco Tours, you’ll learn about Whistler’s history, geography, and view key nature spots along the way with qualified naturalist adventure bike guides. Experiencing Whistler’s natural surroundings with guided tours is the best way to experience nature this spring in Whistler and take home a little extra knowledge of the mountain town you love so much.
