Winter Whistler Village

Whistler Village

You have undoubtedly seen pictures of Whistler, but now is your chance to live the experience firsthand. Tucked into the Coast Mountains of British Columbia, Whistler is a world-class resort that will entertain you all year long. If the stunning natural beauty of Blackcomb and Whistler Mountains isn't enough to impress you, you are sure to be stopped in your tracks in charming Whistler Village, the heart of the town where only pedestrians are permitted. The streets in the village are lined with art galleries and shops, and restaurants for every culinary palette. In the winter you will be strolling among the throngs of international travellers coming for the world-class alpine skiing, and in the summer you will be rubbing shoulders with some of the best downhill mountain bikers in the world. With its laidback westcoast vibe and endless activities, Whistler is a town of unforgettable nature.

TOUR HIGHLIGHTS

Each of our tours shine a spotlight on the region's most iconic landmarks, neighbourhoods, and culture — all with live narration from our expert guides. Don't forget your camera! Our oversized, tinted windows are designed for sightseeing so you won’t miss a thing!

Sea to Sky Highway

Travel along the winding Sea to Sky Highway on the awe-inspiring journey to Whistler + Shannon Falls. This legendary highway is packed with wonders including immense mountain ranges, dramatic waterfalls, and old-growth rainforests. Keep your camera handy – the Sea to Sky is also home to black bears, eagles, and diverse variety of wildlife.

Squamish Adventure Centre

At the Squamish Adventure Centre you will have a chance to stretch your legs and crane your neck as you look up toward the massive granite wall of the Stawamus Chief. The "Chief" - as it is known locally - is one of the many reasons the town of Squamish is known as the adventure capital of Canada, providing endless opportunities for rock climbing, BASE jumping, and other ariel sports. And of course it makes the idea backdrop for selfies and portraits. The Squamish Adventure Centre itself is a sight to behold, with its curved roof structure and locally sourced Douglas Fir timber, the building is designed to mimic the iconic Bald Eagle while in flight during migration, an annual event for which the Squamish River is world-renowned. Inside the centre you will find the Visitor Information Centre, the Chamber of Commerce, as well as gift stores, a coffee shop and tour company, providing you information and fuel as you continue your journey along the Sea-to-Sky Highway.
