Whistler Visitor Centre

Welcome to Whistler! Whether you are in town for a day trip or an extended vacation, drop in and speak to one of our friendly and professional team members for up-to-date information on what's happening around town. We can assist with everything from accommodation and bus schedules to directions and activity information - just ask!

We live, work and play in Whistler year-round - here are some of our favourite things to do this season:


If you are looking for a nice relaxing activity, a great way to spend a day is to explore the local art galleries - stop by the Visitor Centre and grab a gallery guide. When you stroll through the village you can find local and international pieces, ranging from canvases, marble bears, photography, and wooden carvings. Sometimes if you are lucky, you are able to see the artists in action. The Whistler art scene is not limited to galleries, you can also see some unique pieces in local cafes, on buildings and through the stroll. If you find yourself inspired by the art that you see around town you can inquire about art classes at Millennium Place.

Sip and savour and save. Whistler is spoiled with an abundance of great restaurants that feature special menus at great prices during springtime. Locals wait for this time of year to try new menus from their tried and trusted favourite places and experience the new hot spots. The Visitor Centre agents are dedicated foodies and can tell you all about where to eat in Whistler. Visit us in the Gateway Loop to pick up our local dining guides.
