We had a fantastic time out at the lake and at river of golden dreams route. The total length was around 3 hours and our tour guide, the fantastic, very helpful, and energetic Ryan, made our tour experience amazing. He went out of his way to get us un-stuck during times where the river was flowing fast and we had been caught in the sand banks. He is amazing, and we had such a great time today. Definitely recommend this tour for all levels of people.

Amazing canoe experience. Thanks to our tour guide Ryan we handled every obstacle that was on the river and we saw beaver eating and swimming around. High ly recommend it.
Ask for Ryan he knows his stuff.
Thank you. See you soon

My 15 year old went out with Nate and Tilley. This was amazing. It does go for 3 or more hours, so be ready and bring water! After a very useful tutorial on paddling strokes by Tilley (learn all the strokes, you will need them), we paddled across Alta lake and took amazing photos. Tilley took a photo of my daughter and I!
The you enter a small area with lily pads, then the narrow river. Great scenery, narrow river (you may get stuck, but Tilley to the rescue). it is NOT scary or dangerous. It is unique, great views, unique experience. I would do it again. TOTALLY worth the price. Do not try to go alone if you have not done it before. Shell it out for these excellent guides and excellent and professional company.

Canoeing with the kids. A great family activity. We had a great guide, Ryan of PoCo. Knowledgeable and good teacher. My daughter and son had a lot of fun. My son learned a lot from Ryan's narrative. Hats off to Ryan, a lady in the group had dropped her phone near the first beaver dam and Ryan went back for it with her and her friends after the tour and found the phone! Talking about going out his way. Great talking to the Australian driver from Melbourne while waiting, sorry I did not get your name mate!

This was the highlight of my birthday weekend in Whistler. I would strongly recommend booking with a trip with this company. I looked around and they had the best deals I could find for this tour. Jess and Anna were so friendly and helpful with not only booking my experience but also shared some info on were to go in the village. Once we were ready for the tour Rajneesh our driver and Ryan our guide made us feel very welcomed and explained we had the best day for the trip. The skies were blue and not a cloud in sight. The whole experience, from start to finish, was amazing. We saw beautiful views, wildlife and given a history of the area and the geography around us. Thanks Canadian Wilderness Adventures. Loved this trip.

Relaxing canoeing experience on a nice sunny afternoon. Tilly, our guide, was excellent and gave us a good intro before we set off down the river. June seems to be a good time of year to do this trip since the water levels are higher and we only had to get out of the canoe once to move it. Would definitely recommend!

The canoe ride was fun and bittersweet at the same time. It was challenging for us as we crashed into every single tree but everybody had a lot of fun. And it was very memorable. Tara, our guide, was great. She was patient with us as we were complete newbies. The kids had fun even with all our mishaps and turned out to be a very memorable trip. Beautiful scenes with a beaver, ducks, and we even saw a bear!

Excellent day on the water. Our driver Sean is a sweetheart together with the best guide ever Tili, they set us up fast and easy and off we went on the water. Tili has such a lovely personality and guided with passion and especially patience, we felt safe and well taken care of. Recommended to everyone no matter if pro or beginner, you will enjoy the tour as much as we did.

From booking the trip right through to the end, everything could not have been smoother! This company is dealing with the changes and everything COVID brings with it, in their stride!

Booking was straightforward and professional with Jess, and navigating the check in at the Carleton with Craig was straightforward. Sean and Mitch picked us up took us to the put in point.

From there Sean showed us the ropes of navigating a canoe we started the trip. It was a beautiful sunny day with a bit of wind on the lake (thankfully going in the right direction)! Once we got to the river we got to negotiate some beaver dams (unfortunately we didn’t see any beavers). We did have to portage the canoes at a certain point due to the level of the water but that was an added adventure! It’s was amazing how close you were to everything in whistler yet felt at some points to be in the middle of nowhere.

Once at the end of the trip it was a short wait till Craig came to pick us up and take us back to the village. An awesome way to spend the morning! Thank you everyone involved!
