About This Tour

Whistler + Sea To Sky Gondola Private Tour

Traverse from the scenic coastline of Howe Sound fjord to the lush forested peaks of the Coast Mountains. This escape from the city is an ideal way to experience the natural wonders surrounding Vancouver and Whistler.  Gaze out over ever-changing landscapes along the breathtaking the Sea to Sky Highway, with a scenic stop at the 335 metre Shannon Falls.

Our next stop is the awe-inspiring Sea to Sky Gondola.  After an exciting 10-minute ride to the top of Habrich Ridge, your views change dramatically, rising above the towering canopy of a coastal rainforest and upward above Howe Sound and the neighbouring mountains.  Spend your free time at the top walking the boardwalks, hiking the local trails, taking amazing photos of the sweeping vistas or grabbing a light snack from the shop.

Continue the journey to Whistler with views of Tantalus Glacier en route to Whistler.  This pedestrian village is located at the base of world-famous Whistler-Blackcomb Mountains. This world famous ski resort also hosted many 2010 Olympic outdoor sporting events. Spend your time exploring this eclectic downtown shops and cafes, hiking along nature trails, or relaxing and breathing in the fresh mountain air.  Returning to Vancouver, mountains give way to ocean as the coach winds downwards from towering peaks through rugged coastline, to metropolitan cityscapes.

EXPLORATION STOPS

Next stop: Adventure! Step off the bus, stretch your legs, and explore at your own pace. We've created our itinerary to give you the perfect amount of time at each unforgettable stop! Not sure where to start? Our guides are always happy to show you their favourite hidden gems!

Sea to Sky Gondola

Located only a short distance south of the town of Squamish is the Sea to Sky Gondola, a soaring ride taking you to the heights of the land and deep into the wild. In a mere 10 minutes your views change dramatically, rising above the towering canopy of a coastal rainforest and upward above Howe Sound and the neighbouring mountains. The gondola ride is only the beginning. Upon reaching the Summit Lodge the options for adventure continue with the 100 metre (328 feet) Sky Pilot Suspension Bridge, hiking and walking trails suitable for all abilities, a Via Ferrata, and even activities like guided tours and mountaintop yoga.
Winter Whistler Village

Whistler Village

You have undoubtedly seen pictures of Whistler, but now is your chance to live the experience firsthand. Tucked into the Coast Mountains of British Columbia, Whistler is a world-class resort that will entertain you all year long. If the stunning natural beauty of Blackcomb and Whistler Mountains isn't enough to impress you, you are sure to be stopped in your tracks in charming Whistler Village, the heart of the town where only pedestrians are permitted. The streets in the village are lined with art galleries and shops, and restaurants for every culinary palette. In the winter you will be strolling among the throngs of international travellers coming for the world-class alpine skiing, and in the summer you will be rubbing shoulders with some of the best downhill mountain bikers in the world. With its laidback westcoast vibe and endless activities, Whistler is a town of unforgettable nature.

Shannon Falls Park

Between the hustle and bustle of Whistler and Vancouver you will have a chance to unwind in the forests of the spectacular Shannon Falls Park. Stroll the scenic boardwalk through the towering rainforest and old growth treestumps to the misty base of Shannon Falls itself, a 335-metre (1,105-foot) cascade roaring along Shannon Creek to merge with the waters of Howe Sound. There are plenty of gentle trails and benches for hiking and picnics, all of which are sure to include the "wow" factor of natural life on the westcoast.
