Summer Hiking in and around Whistler plus Itinerary help

Jump to last reply

We will be flying into Seattle for spending 6 days in Whistler (and Vancouver) region. Below is our quick itinerary... We are 2 adults and one 8 year old boy... We are most interested in high alpine hiking for glacial lakes, wildflowers and beautiful mountain snowcapped views... My husband is a photographer and we are both avid mountain lovers...

For reference we have been to Banff NP twice - have hiked the PLain of Six glaciers and Lake Agnes, have been to Mt. Assiniboine Provincial Park- have hiked the Nibblet while there, have been Jasper National Park and have done multiple hikes there... My son is also an avid hiker with us and can do most medium difficulty hikes..

Based on our interest above, here is our current plan.. Need help with additional advice on other alpine hikes and spots we might have missed out on... Also, need advice on what to do in one day in Vancouver/ Victoria... Quite clueless there... We are planning to spend 5 nights in Whistler and 1 night in Vancouver

Day 1, Overnight Whistler - Lunch at Seattle Space Needle, Drive Sea to Sky Highway all the way to Whistler
Day 2, Overnight Whistler - Go up to the Blackcomb mountain and hike the Overlord Trail, Decker Loops and Lakeside Trail
Day 3, Overnight Whistler - Go upto Whistler Mountain, Do the Peak to Peak Gondola, come back to Whistler mountain, so the Harmony Lake Trail and High Note Trail
Day 4, Overnight Whistler - This is the valley activity day with ATV ride in the morning and white water rafting in the afternoon
Day 5, Overnight Whistler - Drive to Joffre Lakes and attempt the full hike to Upper Joffre Lake
Day 6, Overnight Vancouver - Leave early from Whistler and drive to spend the day in Victoria/ Vancouver. This day is completely undecided
Day 7 - Drive back to Seattle

Please let us know if there are any glaring things we are missing that match our interests of high alpine scenery, glacial lakes and rewarding hikes...
