This full day, 300-kilometer (186 mile) round trip experience operates November-April. Your day starts with pickup at your Vancouver accommodation before heading north out of the city in one of our fully licenced spacious 4-wheel drive SUV’s, up the famous Sea-to-Sky Highway, renowned for its breathtaking beauty and views.
You will explore two of our favorite waterfalls (Shannon and Alexander) along the way, each with short, easy walking trails and their own distinct style and charm. In the months that snow is present, you will snowshoe to the waterfalls (snowshoes provided).
8am start times: With an earlier arrival into Whistler you will have four hours of free time to explore the village at your leisure before heading back to Vancouver. Some of our favorite activities include the Peak to Peak Gondola, Cross Country skiing, Whistler Tube Park as well as indoor activities like the Squamish Lil’Wat Cultural Centre or the Audain Art Museum.
*highlight of early start time: arrive in village early enough to enjoy daytime activities.
10am start times: Once in the village you will have time to explore the winter wonderland that is Whistler and grab a bite to eat, take a stroll through the village admiring the villages festive lights, maybe take to the rink for outdoor ice skating before rejoining the group for the journey back to Vancouver.
*highlight of later start time: later arrival in village means you will get to see how beautiful the village lights are after sunset.
