What You Can Expect

Next, drive up to 2,000 feet (609 meters) above sea level to reach stunning Whistler Valley. Here there are a number of activities to add to your itinerary available at an additional cost, including the record-breaking Peak 2 Peak gondola, zip-line adventure, snowmobile tour, ATV 4-wheeler tour, bear viewing and more.

Those feeling less adventurous can experience the charm of Whistler Village, the hosted venue of the 2010 Winter Olympics. You may browse quaint shops, walk along forest trails or simply enjoy the mountain scenery. Or why not take advantage of your free admission ticket to the Aboriginal Cultural Center and Museum?

On your journey home you will have the opportunity to stop at Shannon Falls, the third-highest waterfall in Canada. Take a walk to the base for some great photos of this natural wonder or step back and admire the power and beauty of the cascading waters before continuing your scenic journey back to Vancouver.

This trip was amazing! Although we didn't have the best weather our driver Joe made sure we still had a great time.
Stopping off at certain view points on the trip up to Whistler to see sights, and providing umbrellas to help with the constant rain.

Once we were in Whistler, where rain changed to snow, we had 4 hours to ourselves to fill how we wanted and there are plenty of activities to choose from.

We even spotted a whale in the bay on our drive back down to Vancouver.

Definitely recommend! Great service.

This tour was great. Could have spent longer there but it's a good taster for non skiers and skiers alike.
Would love to go back again.

Our guide Aubyn sorry if butchered your name! was fantastic. The trip up was relaxed and made a few stops to check out the sights and get a bit of background on it all. In Whistler we did a snowmobile experience so didn't have a lot of time to explore the village itself. There were 8 of us on the bus including the guide so we were able to chat with our fellow group and even ran into one couple back in Vancouver a couple of times the next day.
Highly recommend the experience!

It was awesome. The drive to Whistler was very scenic and comfortable. There were also enough stops on the way to make the long trip very enjoyable. Our guide was both very knowledgeable and helpful. The gondola ride was definitely well worth it.
