Easy access to the lake. Gorgeous views. Kayak, canoe, or stand up paddle this glacier-fed turquoise lake. Duration: 1-3 hours.

The name Green Lake says it all: this is a beautiful glacier-fed lake right next to Whistler village. There's easy access to the water from paved roads, making this a great outing for anyone visiting Whistler for a couple of days and looking for an afternoon adventure.

Getting There
To reach Green Lake Park, head north from Whistler on HWY99 to Emerald Estates and turn right onto Summer Lane. There is also a dock and launching ramp at the north end of Summer Lane that isn't marked on the map. The best place to launch from is Emerald Estates, or, if you have a stand up paddle board, the sand spit near Whistler Air.

The Lake
Measuring 1.2 kilometers from end to end, Green Lake is a fairly easy paddle, perfect for lounging around in the summer sun. The Green River drains from the north end of the lake, and this is the prettiest area for paddling—just be careful of the current pulling you towards the river!

Stop in for dinner at the beautiful Edgewater Lodge Restaurantand take in lake views from the comfort of the patio.

Always practice Leave No Trace ethics on your adventures and follow local regulations.
