Description

Ziptrek Ecotours is Whistler’s most unique adventure experience!

Ziptrek Ecotours features thrilling zipline tours from mountain to mountain and canopy walks – both adventures are complete with suspension bridges, boardwalks, viewing decks, and an interpretive program delivered by guides. With operations starting in 2002, Ziptrek established itself as North America’s zipline pioneer, and has since become an iconic Whistler experience. Ziptrek Ecotours currently has a total of 11 ziplines, and offers 4 distinct zipline tours, as well as its TreeTrek Canopy Walk (involving no ziplines).
Ziptrek is also now home to the longest zipline in Canada and the USA – The Sasquatch™. Spanning a mind-blowing distance of +2kms, speeds well over 100 km/h, and 600 ft above the ground at certain points during the zip, this is the ultimate zipline experience!

Year Round

Tours operate in all weather conditions, 365 days a year. Ziptrek has you covered if it’s snowing or raining; they provide boots, rain gear and have heated platforms. And if the weather is blazing hot, water and shaded areas can help cool you down. All Tours take place in a spectacular old-growth rainforest.

Tours

Ziptrek has attracted hundreds of thousands of individuals, along with corporate groups and families of all sizes. This is an adventure that is accessible to all and produces a similar effect over and over – no one can believe how much they enjoyed themselves.
