Adventure comes in all shapes and sizes.

Whistler attracts people from all walks of life. We’re explorers, pro athletes, entrepreneurs, ski bums, artists and visitors, each pursuing a new lease of life, a new perspective, an escape from the everyday, to learn and grow. And with the mountains, lakes and rainforest at our doorstep, there’s a million and one ways to pair the unusual and exciting into the adventure we need, right now.

This summer, shake off the routine and tap into the unique energy of the people and landscape of Whistler, Canada. Choose to adventure, differently.

Go High and Low

Explore the mountain peaks, the dense rainforest, the sparkling lakes, the pedestrian-only Village and all the places in between. With 40 kilometers of car-free Valley Trail connecting the neighborhoods it’s easy to explore on foot or bike. Or let expert local guides take you on an e-bike, jeep tour or ATV ride into the wilderness.

Go Early, Go Late

Summer days are long and every moment of precious time should be lived to the full. Start in the quiet of early morning with a lakeside walk and take it through to close. Keep on dancing.

Whistler is where nature, people and passion meet, and with so much to do you’ll need more than a weekend to take it all in. Book your summer vacation at early and save.


Pip has somehow worked her way around from being a snow-and-bike bum to holding a real job while also being outdoors as much as possible. She’s collected scars, bikes for (almost) every occasion, a small trail dog and a love of craft beer plus a rudimentary understanding of skiing, snowboarding, sketching, and the art of chairlift conversations. She currently believes a combination of gravity, snow, dirt and rad people are what make Whistler tick but investigations are ongoing.
