  • Travel the Sea to Sky Highway, tracing a route along the shore of Howe Sound; the route weaves deep into the Coast Mountains and then climbs through old-growth rainforests before reaching Whistler 670 metres (733 yards) above sea level.
  • Photo stop at Shannon Falls to capture an impressive shot of your adventure.
  • Step aboard the Sea to Sky Gondola to reach the peak for stunning views. Gain a new perspective if you dare cross the Sky Pilot Suspension Bridge.
  • Arrive in Whistler Village, and join a guided walking tour through the village (optional participation).
  • Visit the shops, stop in an art gallery, or do as the locals do and find the perfect patio along the village stroll for a moment to relax at this stunning mountain resort. Whistler Resort is renowned as an outdoor meca, so feel free to ask about additional activities you can take part in during your free time in the village.

When your time in Whistler is coming to a close you then get to enjoy the scenic tour back along the Sea to Sky Highway to where your tour began.

Sea to Sky Highway

The journey itself to Whistler is a thing of pure natural beauty, it takes you along the world’s most southern glacial fjord, the Howe Sound.

It is easy to see why this drive is ranked as one of the top 5 drives in the world. Don’t forget to look out for the old copper mine at Britannia Beach, once the largest copper mine in the British Empire.

On our way to the Olympic Village, gaze up, way up, as we pass the world’s 2nd largest granite monolith, the Stawamus Chief, 700 metres (2297 feet). Those little colourful dots you may see are the brave climbers hanging from the rock face.
