Garibaldi Provincial Park, British Columbia
(4.8/5 based on 120+ reviews on the web)
Embrace the wilderness at Garibaldi Provincial Park, a pristine alpine park that features a jagged glacier-capped mountain vista, a scenic lake, and a wide array of plant and animal life. Douglas firs, western red cedar, and western hemlock forests dot the grounds. Go for a leisurely trek through the canopied park, paying special attention to the glacial mountain vantage point, or the lush greenery surrounding Garibaldi Lake. These treks can be quite challenging, particularly in the winter months, so approach with caution if fitness or walking ability are a concern. Arrange to visit Garibaldi Provincial Park and other attractions in Whistler using our Whistler itinerary maker.

  • We had the famous Garibaldi Trail... 18 km to reach the majestic Garibaldi Lake... 5 hours and more... It was worth every minute! Be well shod not only for looks rugged but also to have the feet dry (snow on the trail in October). It is actually an intermediate trail... But don't get discouraged at the 2 first kms which are the most difficult. The trail climbs almost constantly to the Lake... Back down too intensely. It's a time Bucket list :-)

  • Long approach to the lake from Rumble Creek parking lot. Beautiful from the lake, easy hikes up to Panorama Ridge and Black Tusk from the lake.
  • I did a 4 day backpacking trip here a couple years ago and it was amazing. The mountains around Garibaldi Lake are beautiful. Panorama Ridge has an incredible 360 view at the top. Also the Black Tusk was a very dramatic and intense mountain to climb. Swimming in Garibaldi Lake after hiking all day was very cold but satisfying as well.
  • Exquisite lakes and amazing hikes with spectacular views!
  • Long trail with breathtaking lake at the end. Be prepared for endless hill. Take a lot of water and do not forget swimsuit in summer. Lake is wonderful but trail is hard and long. Enjoy it.
  • Please someone else assist me how to go there,is any bus available to go there?
