Legends speak of a long-lost trail that leads to a secret valley. Join a twilight expedition to explore its mysterious beauty. Just 10 minutes drive north of Whistler village, experience a range of activities from TAG Whistler. Vallea Lumina is a sound and light experience that takes you through the forest, telling a story along the way It is one of the popular Whistler summer activities that every visitor should do!
But if you are in Whistler in the winter, then you are in for a treat. The snow-covered trail is even more magical. It is one of my favorite things to do in Whistler with kids.

Bring your camera and a sense of wonder. Bug spray is recommended for summer visits. Dress in layers, the experience is in the forest. If rain is in the forecast, bring a rain jacket as umbrellas are not permitted. For winter visits, full snow gear is recommended, especailly for kids.
