Take a Day Trip from Vancouver
From the soaring mountains of Whistler to the fascinating Asian malls of Richmond, Vancouver is a great base for all kinds of day trips. Head out to the Gulf Islands for a slice of laid-back island life or enjoy a scenic trip up the Sea to Sky Highway to go rafting or eagle watching with Sunwolf in Brackendale. All less than a couple of hours from the Downtown core.

Whistler: Not Just A Ski Resort

Large arrow left

Already a world class ski town, Whistler was completely revamped to prepare for the Winter Games in 2010. But don't think it's just a winter town, it is now a year round destination.

The ski runs become a world class mountain biker's haven, there are hiking trails, zip lines, horseback riding, and so much more. It's quite pricey but if you can can afford to take the gondola, there are more trails and dining at the summit. There's plenty do in Whistler Village if you want to keep you feet planted. There is definitely no shortage of hotels, restaurants, and shopping.

Last time we were there, Crankworx Festival was going on which is a 10 day bike festival. It was totally awesome!
