The Perfect Whistler Trip
The perfect Whistler trip could mean a million different things to a million different people. To me it was our ‘Tourists In Our Own Town’ time here in Whistler and it went a little something like this…
Driving, Biking, Hiking
A beautiful coastal drive along the Sea to Sky Highway with stops at Shannon Falls and Brandywine Falls to stretch our legs along the little forest pathways, climb some trees and rocks, and of course take in the sights and sounds of the Falls.
Onto our bikes we go! The Valley Trail is your family friendly cycling and walking connection to all things Whistler. We took the trail toward the Village with fun stops at a couple of bike parks along the way to test our skills. The kids win!
Off to the GLC (Garibaldi Lift Company) at the base of the mountain in Whistler Village for lunch, a few bevies and a great viewing spot to watch the mountain bikers rip down the mountain trails.
The following day we embarked on a hike we had never done before – Loggers Lake/Crater Rim Trail. Wow, challenging but the reward at the end was magnificent! A pristine lake with a fallen log you can walk on that reaches toward the middle. Absolutely beautiful!
The bike home along the Valley Trail took us by Green Lake north of the Village. Too cold to swim there but oh so gorgeous.
Another day, another Whistler adventure – we took the Whistler Gondola up the mountain for some hiking and a ride on the Peak 2 Peak Gondola for spectacular views, finishing the day at Portobello at Fairmont Whistler, a local favourite, for coffees and doughnuts!
We’re exhausted, our hearts are full, and we can’t wait to do it all over again!
Fall has arrived and no matter what the season, Whistler is adventure-ready.
Thank you Whistler for OUR perfect Whistler trip. What will yours be?

Conference Direct says…
“I recently worked with Luxury Transport Inc. for my client’s 150 person conference in July, 2015 at the Westin Bayshore Hotel. Luxury Transport provided airport transfers to the majority of our guests and transportation for the entire group for three offsite events. We were extremely pleased with the quality of the staff and vehicles, their prompt attention to our questions and their ability to adapt quickly to our travel manifest changes. We received many compliments from attendees that appreciated the drivers’ friendliness and knowledge of the local Vancouver area which was shared during their airport transfers. I would recommend any organization coming to Vancouver and looking for high quality transportation services to work with Luxury Transport Inc.”
Whistler Congress Committee says…
“It is with heartfelt appreciation that the Whistler Congress Committee and all the members of Les Clefs d’Or Canada wish to say ‘Thank You’ for all your support, kindness and generosity in making the 10th National Les Clefs d’Or Congress the most successful to date. We are so proud to have had you as our industry partner…”
A recent Whistler client says…
“I was expecting basic service from Vancouver to Whistler, but got so much more! Our driver (Tej) was so accommodating and knowledgeable as he navigated us first to a grocery for utinsels so we could eat our picnic lunch, and then along the Sea to Sky Highway. Tej provided insight on the various places along the way, and also made recommendations on what to do and see in Whistler.”
A Tale of Two Cities no doubt! We’re here to help with planning for your trip to Whistler and Vancouver this 2015/2016 Season!
As we hit summer countdown into those longer late summer early fall days in Vancouver and Whistler, it’s our reminder that now is the time to start planning that Whistler trip to remember!
Take on Vancouver, take on Whistler, or split time between the two beautiful neighboring cities giving you two outrageously fun and beautiful destinations in one trip.
Both Whistler and Vancouver are well known for their breathtaking surrounding views and culinary expertise. While Whistler boasts a charming and atmospheric resort-style Village, Vancouver excites with endless landmarks, beautiful parks, and a bustling downtown core. While in Whistler, walk the boutique shops in the Village and take a ride up the Whistler Blackcomb Gondola and cross the impressive Peak 2 Peak Gondola, then take some time in Vancouver to take in the downtown culture of Gastown and Chinatown as well as a drive through Stanley Park, Vancouver’s coastal gem. Then take in some live entertainment and culinary delights at Granville Island Public Market.
Endless activities awaits you on your Whistler and Vancouver adventures!
BC Hydro’s annual Candlelight Dinner Event is happening in Vancouver on Wednesday October 22nd, 2014.
Participating restaurants such as ARC (at the Fairmont Waterfront Vancouver Hotel), Bacchus Restaurant, Bayside Lounge, Bridges Restaurant, Chambar, and Diva at the Met, to name just a few, will dim their lights while you dine by candlelight. In addition to superior culinary flavours, each venue will be offering special discounts on the evening. That’s energy savings AND pocket savings…a true win-win.
See here for a list of participating restaurants in Vancouver’s Lower Mainland…
The long weekend is fast approaching. What are your plans??
Whistler for the long weekend is the perfect plan! Before the back-to-school life-in-the-fast-lane picks back up get up to Whistler to enjoy some late summer activities and beautiful views!
Riding the Sea to Sky Highway to Whistler is breathtaking in itself as you travel alongside those amazing ocean colours and backdrop mountains the whole way up.
Once in Whistler, TAKE IT UP a few notches with activities such as taking the gondola up for some Whistler Blackcomb mountaintop hiking and a memorable ride on the Peak 2 Peak Gondola, or hit the Mountain Bike Park for your adrenaline rush, or take a canoe or kayak down the winding River of Golden Dreams from Alta Lake to Green Lake. Still have time to spare in your day? Go for a tree top adventure, zip-lining, or ATVing to fill those adventure gaps.
Or, TAKE IT DOWN a few notches by enjoying a leisurely bike ride or walk along the Whistler’s extensive and peaceful Valley Trail for a picnic at one of Whistler’s amazing lakes, beaches or parks. If you’re looking for some serious down-time, be sure to visit the Scandinave Spa, or book a tee time at one of Whistler’s impressive golf courses, or grab your rod and drop a line for a quiet afternoon of fishing.
Wanting to continue on that relaxation train? Enjoy a walk through the boutique shops in Whistler Village and stop into one of Whistler’s many award winning restaurants for drinks and delectable eats.
It’s your time to be inspired. Head to Whistler this long weekend and plan your perfect itinerary.
