You can go on magical light-up night walks in Whistler this summer

You’ll want to book a trip to Whistler and get your camera ready ASAP.

A new, interactive experience is getting ready to light up the night in Whistler this summer.

Vallea Lumina is an immersive, light-up night walk created by Montreal-based entertainment studio, Moment Factory and Whistler’s very own “The Adventure Group.”

The 1.5 km walk is staged at Cougar Mountain. Located just eight minutes north of Whistler Village, the night walk uses the lush rainforest and a stunning array of mountain and valley views as the backdrop.

Through the use of emotive lights, video, soundscape, and scenography, guests are “transported” to another world with opportunities to touch, play, and explore their new environment.

This will be the first-ever Lumia instalment in British Columbia, but judging from photos of previous events across the country, the show will be nothing short of amazing.

Valley Lumina launches on Wednesday, July 18, and will run daily until October. The experience begins at sundown and walks will occur every 20 minutes.
