It’s now officially December, which means it’s the perfect time to visit Whistler’s enchanting Winter Vallea Lumina pathway. The experience takes visitors on an illuminated journey through some of Whistler’s most scenic forests, guided by twinkling lights and cryptic radio transmissions.

The 1 km trail takes around 30 to 45 minutes to complete and is available to explore nightly from now until May, 2024.

“This pathway leads toward a place filled with beauty and proof that the legends of Whistler are true,” reads the event’s website.
