Need To Know
This tour includes all of the best parts of our Whistler & Shannon Falls Tour with an amazing, once in a lifetime seaplane flight from Whistler to Vancouver.
Continue along one of Canada’s most scenic drives that follows an ancient glacial fjord, passes the second-largest granite monolith in the world, and winds through an endless range of mountains. Along the way, enjoy a scenic stop at Shannon Falls Provincial Park. Near the base of the falls, you will find a platform that offers the best views of the aptly named Shannon Falls.
Upon arriving in Whistler, your free time to explore the chalet-style village will begin. Opt to sightsee along the cobblestone walkways, stepping into the boutique stores or having lunch at one of the restaurants. There are countless patios to choose from to embrace the views of the towering mountains and sprawling forests. Visit the stunning Squamish Lil’Wat Cultural Centre and take advantage of a unique opportunity to learn about the culture and traditions of the local First Nations Peoples.
For those looking for something a little different, ask your tour guide about what seasonal activities are available. Whether you are visiting in summer or winter, there is a wide array of activities to suit every guest.

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.

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.
