“Meet & Greet” at your hotel in Vancouver and start your full day tour to the beautiful mountain resort village of Whistler.
Traverse from the scenic coastline of Howe Sound fjord to the lush forested peaks of the Coast Mountains. Stop at BC’s highest waterfall, Shannon Falls, and enjoy riding on the Sea to Sky Gondola. Once inside the gondola (8 person capacity) with floor to ceiling glass windows, you glide to 880 m above sea level, enjoying incredible bird's-eye views of nearby Howe Sound and majestic Shannon Falls. Once at the top, there are many accessible viewing platforms to take in vistas of coastal fjords, as well as various walking/hiking trails, and Summit Lodge, complete with a restaurant, bar and retail area. Behold Stawamanus Chief, the second-largest standing piece of granite in the world and popular rock climbing area. Upon arrival in Whistler Village, enjoy visiting the Squamish Lil’wat Cultural Centre, the first-ever site dedicated to the history and culture of the local First Nations. This is where the mountains, rivers and people meet. Built to preserve their culture and share it with others, the building is designed to evoke the longhouses of the Squamish people and the Istken (traditional earthen pit house) of the Lil’wat people, with a modern architectural interpretation. Afterwards enjoy leisure time for shopping and sightseeing in the village before returning to Vancouver. This tour ends again at your hotel in Vancouver in the evening.
