We did an all day trip with hiking/ via ferrata in the morning and the glacier exploration in the afternoon. It was a very well run trip, and the guide was excellent. The equipment is very safe and the mountain views are exceptional. We did this with my husband and myself (late 40s) and our two daughters (11 and 13).... More

I did the via ferrata accompanied by an excellent mountain guide, Teresa, who i highly recommend. This activity requires some skill and fortitude. Be sure not to be afraid of heights as climbing is involved and you are often vertical. Although hooks in the rock provide footholds, you occasionally have to rely on features in the rock for your hands... More

We took a day trip to carrot creek and Lake Louise. Phil was super informative and knowledgable about rock climbing and all of the different spots to go. It was a great learning experience.

Our guide Theresa was awesome and informative. I did the research and was expecting more of a hike/trek with a little bit of climbing but was pleasantly surprised when I actually rock climbed a rock face to the peak. Great experience but not for the faint of heart!

We took the Via Ferrata tour and as a via ferrata tour guide myself I enjoyed this one a lot. The view is incredible, our guide was great, gave us a lot of info about the surrounding, super interresting. The booking was made super easy eventhough we booked less than 24h prior to the trip. Awesome :D

I did the Via Ferrata in Whistler through the Whistler Alpine Guides Bureau with Matt as our guide. And it was brutally fun and exciting! I do not only recommend the Via Ferrata as an activity in general but also Matt as a guide specifically. Probably one of my better experiences here in Whistler!

The Via Ferrara with Whistler Alpine Guides Bureau is an exhilarating experience. Travelling across the snow-covered glacier you soon reach the first of two steep climbs up Whistler peak. The metal rungs help you in your climb but there are times that you'll have to use the rock features as hand or footholds. Of course, you're safely clipped on the... More

There are numerous day tours available to this mountain village but we decided to take the much cheaper Greyhound bus. And it was good. We left at 10 am, travelling through beautiful lake and mountain scenery and making a couple of scheduled stops at stations along the way. We arrived about midday and had four hours in the village which... More
