On this River of Golden Dreams tour, you will pedal to Alta Lake on a mountain bike, then paddle across Alta Lake, through the Whistler Wetlands and down the scenic glacial river aptly-named "The River of Golden Dreams."  Your bike will be waiting for you at the end of your paddle for you to explore some local mountain bike trails before riding back to the village.

Choose to embark on the standard pedal and paddle combo tour or with your own private adventure guide.
