DISCOVER WHISTLER & SEA TO SKY GONDOLA
Spectacular sights and rugged wilderness is found just out of reach of Downtown Vancouver. Board your mini-coach and tour the famous Sea to Sky Highway, along Howe Sound, the southernmost glacial fjord in North America.
Feel the spray from British Columbia’s third-highest waterfall, Shannon Falls, while standing on the viewing platform. Next it is on to the Sea to Sky Gondola. Board the gondola and ascend 850 metres (930 yards) to the top to soak up the panoramic perspectives of Howe Sound cradled by the Coast Mountains. It’s here that you can cross the Sky Pilot Suspension Bridge and walk along forest trails to the observation platforms. Our tour then continues north to Whistler Resort where you will join a short guided walking tour of Whistler Village (optional). After learning a bit about Whistler and getting a lay of the land, there is plenty of free time to explore at your own pace. Visit the shops, stop in an art gallery, or do as the locals do and find the perfect patio along the village stroll for a moment to relax at this stunning mountain resort. Whistler Resort is renowned as an outdoor meca, so feel free to ask about additional activities you can take part in during your free time in the village.

Sea to Sky Highway
The journey itself to Whistler is a thing of pure natural beauty, it takes you along the world’s most southern glacial fjord, the Howe Sound.
It is easy to see why this drive is ranked as one of the top 5 drives in the world. Don’t forget to look out for the old copper mine at Britannia Beach, once the largest copper mine in the British Empire.
On our way to the Olympic Village, gaze up, way up, as we pass the world’s 2nd largest granite monolith, the Stawamus Chief, 700 metres (2297 feet). Those little colourful dots you may see are the brave climbers hanging from the rock face.
