Need To Know
Our Whistler & Shannon Falls Tour is an adventure that embraces the true west coast lifestyle. Enjoy Shannon Falls, endless mountain ranges, an ancient glacial fjord, and the second-largest granite monolith in the world while travelling along the famous Sea to Sky Highway, one of the most scenic routes in Canada.
Our tour showcases Whistler Village, a quaint village with towering mountains and sprawling forests. The town offers everything from relaxing spas and forest strolls to adrenaline-filled activities and breathtaking sights. Whether you’re visiting in summer or winter, Whistler has a wide array of activities to suit every guest. Enjoy four hours of free time to relax, shop and dine, or venture out of town on an optional add-on activity.

1. What Should I Wear?
It is always best to dress in layers for the day no matter the season. In the summer, comfortable walking shoes with pants or shorts and a light jacket should be enough for the day. Travelling here in winter conditions requires snow boots, warm jackets, gloves, mittens. If needed, we can store any extra gear on the bus.
2. Is This Tour Accessible?
Guests can expect a minimal to moderate to a high level of walking, depending on the activities selected. Most of Whistler Village is paved but, many add-on activities include trails not paved. The walk to the Shannon Falls observation platform is five to ten-minute in length along an unpaved, inclined path.
3. Is This Pre-Cruise Tour?
Unfortunately, our Whistler & Shannon Falls Tour is not compatible with cruise ship arrivals or departures.
4. Can I Book Activities Myself?
You can book activities yourself; however, all excursions must be booked within 12:00 pm to 1:30 pm to ensure you can meet your guide at the specified meeting time. Please let our Guest Services Team or your Tour Guide know if this is your plan.
5. Do You Sell the Peak 2 Peak Gondola?
At this time, we are not selling the Peak 2 Peak Gondola. If you are interested in this attraction, we suggest heading there first since the wait times for ticket purchasing and boarding can be unpredictable.
