Planned Itinerary

Day 1: Full-day excursion to Whistler

After disembarkation, you’ll start your full-day tour to the beautiful resort village of Whistler, which ends at a hotel back in Vancouver in the evening. 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 third 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, explore this unique mountain ski resort on your own.

You could also visit the Squamish Lil’wat Cultural Centre, the first ever center dedicated to the history and culture of local First Nations (this visit would be on your own). Built to preserve their culture and share it with others, the building is designed to use modern architecture to evoke the longhouses of the Squamish people and the Istken (traditional earthen pit house) of the Lil’wat people. Dinner and the rest of the evening are at your leisure.

Day 2: Vancouver/Departure

Breakfast at the hotel marks the end of your Post-Program.

Please note that the order of sights might vary.
