Canadian Wilderness Adventures offers guided tours, beginning on Alta Lake and finishing just before the access to Green Lake. Captain your own boat negotiating the river bends, steering through narrow passages, under bridges and even do a portage.
Voted Whistler's number one thing to do, not only by visitors but by the locals! An enchanting journey from lake to lake, the River of Golden Dreams is a summertime classic. Begin your adventure by paddling across the historic Alta Lake where you will pass the original site of Myrtle Phillip's summer fishing resort. Following families of ducks and geese into the lush river mouth, you'll paddle through flowing lilies and around bends of overhanging greenery. Flowing with the current, you can lounge lazily along with just a few strokes to steer through narrow passages. As the river opens up again on the other side, you'll get picked up on the shore of glacier fed Green Lake.
