Whistler Holidays

Peaks, slopes, and outdoor pursuits

Located in the majestic Coast Mountains and just two hours north of Vancouver, Whistler is Canada’s premier year-round destination with two fantastic mountains, a vibrant and picturesque base Village and incredible outdoor pursuits with incredible skiing and snowboarding, hiking amd biking trails and world-class shopping, restaurants and bars. 

Whistler is all about its awe-inspiring mountains, it is impossible to visit and not get swept up in the incredible outdoor pursuits on offer. Whistler's facilities suit everyone from novice to expert and from solo travellers to large families. Whether you come to ski or hike, there is no better way to experience the incredible scenery than some aerial sightseeing. We love the Peak 2 Peak Gondola that links the Whistler and Blackcomb peaks, with its spectacular 360-degree panoramas at up to 436 metres above the ground. Vertigo? What vertigo?
