Sundial Team go Ziptrekking!

Ziptrekking is an unbelievable year round activity and a must do experience while in Whistler. Continually ranked #1 on TripAdvisor’s Whistler activity list, Ziptrek Ecotours are the experts in Ziptrekking with over 1 million zips and counting! The tours take place high in the tree-tops of Whistler’s ancient temperate rainforests and take you on a journey along suspension bridges, trails and ziplines. These steel cables, some up to 15 stories high and 2000 feet long, take you from one platform to the other reaching speeds of over 80km per hour (50mph)!

Feel the anticipation build as you make your way down the steps to the launch platform, let your adrenaline loose as you let go and soar down the cables to the other side! The first line gets your heart beating but once you’ve let go, the adventure has begun, soaring over the amazing valley below through the mountainous vistas of the rainforest!

A variety of tours are available, the Bear and Eagle tours both offer five ziplines and are about 3 hours long. The Bear tour is the original tour perfect for first timers and families, or step it up and take the Eagle tour. The Eagle tour takes you soaring along five different ziplines including the 2000-foot line, which drops you 20 stories! This tour concludes as you go down the last zipline ending in Whistler Village. The Mammoth tour is another option with 10 ziplines, for those who hunger for an adrenaline rush and want a longer lasting thrilling adventure! Combining both the Bear and Eagle tour and a delicious packed lunch to help you recharge for the last half of this heart pounding adventure!

Recently some of the Sundial team took part in the Eagle tour, having an exhilarating afternoon amongst the old growth forest. Check out the footage, it even includes one adventurous staff member going upside down on the ziplines! The Sundial Boutique Hotel is located just steps from the check in point for Ziptrek tours and our friendly concierge team are always ready to assist you in booking your Ziptrek adventure!
