Explore Whistler on your own
Your full-day tour starts with a meet and greet at your hotel in Vancouver. Then it’s on to the beautiful resort village of Whistler.
We will traverse the scenic coastline of Howe Sound fjord toward the lush, forested peaks of the Coast Mountains. Stop at Shannon Falls, British Columbia’s highest waterfall, and enjoy a ride on the Sea to Sky Gondola. Each gondola carries eight people and its floor-to-ceiling glass windows give you a sense of gliding 2,900 feet above sea level. Enjoy incredible bird’s-eye views of nearby Howe Sound and the majestic Shannon Falls. Once at the top, there are many accessible viewing platforms to take in the views of coastal fjords, as well as various walking and hiking trails.
You’ll see Stawamus Chief, the world’s second-largest standing piece of granite and a popular rock-climbing area. Upon arrival in Whistler Village, enjoy leisure time for shopping and sightseeing in the beautiful ski resort village before returning to your hotel in Vancouver.
Please note that the order of sights may vary.
We recommend this excursion to guests who disembark in Nome and would like to extend their stay in Vancouver.
