Nestled at the base of Whistler and Blackcomb mountains, just under two hours north of Vancouver, Whistler is one of the top four-season destinations in the world. Whistler offers unlimited opportunities for adventure or relaxation for every traveler. The resort was brought into the world spotlight as the site of the Alpine and Nordic venues for the Vancouver 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games.
While Whistler is known for its alpine skiing and boarding in the winter, summers here are not to be missed. Adventure enthusiasts enjoy mountain biking, alpine hiking and sightseeing, ATV tours, Ziplining, and so much more. And golf fans can also check out any of the four championship golf courses. Travelers looking for a more relaxed experience can stroll or bike along the Valley Trail. Or slow things down even more by visiting the Scandinave Spa – a unique spa offering hydrotherapy, soothing baths and massage treatments.
While you’re here, step into the vibrant pedestrian Village and check out a variety of shops, sure to please every shopper’s interests. In addition, travelers can soak up the art and museum exhibitions, live music and free concerts, and other cultural events. Satisfy your food cravings with a wide range of restaurants, cafes, and bistros. Or soak up the atmosphere on any number of patios along the Village Stroll. Finally, take in the nightlife to experience a fun ending to a busy day.
