Located in the spectacular Coast Mountains of British Columbia, Whistler is Canada’s premier, year-round two-mountain resort. Our Whistler Peak to Peak day trip is a great option for Vancouver tourists, because Whistler is just a 2-hour drive north of Vancouver. Whistler features two majestic mountains, epic skiing, championship golf courses, over 200 shops, 90 restaurants and bars, hiking trails, the Whistler peak to peak gondola, spas and a mountain bike park.
The drive to Whistler along the Sea-To-Sky Highway is very enjoyable indeed. The beautiful scenery and spectacular ocean views will give you plenty of photo opportunities. There are scenic stops along the way, including Shannon Falls – Canada’s 3rd highest waterfall!
Whistler’s latest attraction is the Peak 2 Peak Gondola, an engineering marvel that links Blackcomb and Whistler Mountains together at their peaks. Enjoy the stunning views from 400 m (1,200 ft) above the valley floor while traveling for 3 km (2 miles) along the longest unsupported lift span in the world!
