2 Night - Summer Getaway

3 Night - Summer Getaway


Day 1

Morning:

Travel from Vancouver along the beautiful Sea to Sky highway on scheduled motor coach. If you are driving be sure to take a rest stop at one of the Provincial Parks along the way. Welcome to Whistler! Experience all that Whistler has to offer on a scenic tour of the venues of the 2010 Winter Olympics and Paralympics including the Whistler Sliding Centre perched near the bottom of Blackcomb Mountain and the Whistler Olympic Park in the beautiful Callaghan Valley.

Afternoon:

Now is a perfect time to explore Whistler's pedestrian village. Follow the smells of fresh waffle cones to discover Whistler's best ice cream parlours or take pleasure in the abundance of outdoor bistros, coffee shops and more. Whistler Village is a shopper's paradise with over 200 shops.

Evening:

Tackle a large pile of nachos on a sun-drenched pub patio. Or sip locally inspired cocktails while listening to local musical talent. With more than 90 restaurants within Whistler Village, the dining options are endless!


Day 2

Morning:

Today is all about Whistler's famous alpine. Head up the chairlifts from the Blackcomb Base or the Whistler Village Gondola from the main village and explore a few hiking trails at 6,000 feet. The handy trail map will guide guests to the easy or more challenging paths. Have lunch on a mountain-top patio while admiring the stunning scenery. After lunch, take the exciting PEAK 2 PEAK Gondola, spanning the distance between Whistler and Blackcomb's peaks, and stretching a little more than three kilometers. The ride takes just 15 minutes and offers incredible views of the surrounding mountain range and Whistler Valley below. Wait for the silver gondolas as they offer glass bottoms for a 360° experience. Remember to watch for resident black bears along the way - they love to dine on the bushes surrounding the gondola towers!

Evening:

Feeling adventurous? Join a unique dining experience tour and journey by ATV or Jeep to the Crystal Hut, perched atop Blackcomb Mountain at 6,000ft. From the deck of the rustic cabin enjoy the rich array of alpine colours and panoramic views of the surrounding Coast Mountain Range. Relax and enjoy live entertainment as the chef prepares a sampling of West Coast Fare including fresh BC Salmon, salads and dessert.


Day 3

Morning:

Join world-renown bear expert Michael Allen on a tour to view bears doing what they do best...being bears. Riding in a comfortable 4x4 vehicle, guests are lead through a maze of ski area roads that traverse the area's diverse forests, meadows, and stream environments.

Afternoon:

When the snow melts, the rivers in and around Whistler Resort run white and fast. Catch all the thrills of white water rafting, from mild to wild, as certified guides navigate you safely through haystacks and holes on the Green, Lower Cheakamus, Elaho and Squamish rivers. Whether you want to hold on tight and enjoy the ride or grab a paddle and dig in, there's a white water rafting trip for everyone in wet and wild Whistler!

Evening:

Can't decide on one restaurant why not join Whistler Tasting Tours? During this guided 3-hour walking tour, guests enjoy a full four-course dinner, where each delicious course is provided by a different restaurant and expertly paired with a fine British Columbian wine.


Day 4

Morning:

This morning, after all of your Whistler adventures, take some time to relax as you experience the age-old Finnish tradition of soaking in soothing outdoor baths at Whistler's newest and most unique spas, Le Scandinave Spa. Start with a soothing eucalyptus steam bath or wood burning sauna and then cool off with a quick plunge in a cold bath or Nordic waterfalls. The last step is to relax in the solarium or on a hammock by the outdoor fireplace. (Note: All visitors to Scandinave must be 19 years of age and the spa advocates a quiet environment). Or, if you prefer to continue with more active adventure, rent a trail bike from one of the many bike rental shops in the village and get ready to explore the Valley Trail, a 30km paved pedestrian/bicycle route linking several parks, beaches, neighbourhoods, and playgounds to Whistler Village. Why not pack a lunch and cruise to the beach for a picnic and cooling swim? Afternoon It's time to make your way back to the hotel to catch your transfer back to Vancouver. Pick up a couple of souvenirs on the way and take some last photos of your summer holiday in Whistler!
