YOUR ITINERARY

DAY 1

Vancouver to Whistler

Have your camera ready for an amazing journey today! We’ll travel the breath-taking Sea to Sky Highway, past mountain peaks, glaciers, and stunning lakes, stopping off at two waterfalls, Shannon Falls and Brandywine Falls. Upon our arrival in Whistler, we’ll take a guided tour of the Squamish Lil’wat Cultural Centre including a forest walk with a Cultural Ambassador, to learn about the Indigenous cultures of the Whistler Valley. We bet you’ll be hungry after this jam-packed day, so we’ll be dining together this evening. After that, check out Whistler’s nightlife scene or give axe throwing a go! (And yes, Canada hosts a World Axe Throwing League.)

 

Activity Inclusions: Guided tour of Squamish Lil’wat Cultural Centre

Meal Inclusions: Dinner

DAY 2

Whistler to Vancouver

Ziplining, bungee jumping, mountain biking and hiking; these are just some of the things you could be doing today!  We don’t leave until the afternoon, giving you plenty of time to explore Whistler village or the mountains.  Alternatively, find a quiet spot in one of the beautiful parks and take in some raw unadulterated nature, before we head back to Vancouver, stopping en route for another photo opportunity!

ACTIVITIES

The Sea to Sky tour to Whistler is jam packed with adventure activities – in just 2 days you can try bungee jumping, ziplining, mountain biking and more. Moose Travel’s Whistler tour offers plenty of options to make the most of the epic mountain scenery.

Optional activities are booked and paid through your Moose tour guide while on the tour. No need to pre-book! The following optional activities are available on this tour:

ACCOMMODATION

On a non-accommodated tour package, you must book ALL your accommodation yourself. Moose does NOT include nor hold any accommodation reservations on your behalf in the overnight locations on this package. The non-accommodated package is designed for travellers who wish to stay in private rooms or in alternative properties.

IMPORTANT NOTES

The Sea to Sky is part of numerous combination tours we offer: the Pacific, Sasquatch, Big West, Tomahawk and Cougar. Some of your fellow travellers will have already explored Vancouver Island together. After you finish in Vancouver, many travellers will continue on towards Banff the following day.

All tour finish times are approximate. We strongly recommend that you DO NOT book onward travel on the final day of the tour, since traffic or other unexpected circumstances may cause delays.

Please note that our itineraries can change and/or activities can be cancelled without notice as a result of circumstances beyond our control, such as weather, traffic and unforeseen events. If this does occur, there may be alternatives available, or you may get to enjoy more free time to explore on your own!

If you’re flexible about when you can travel, consider the pros and cons of our travel seasons. In Low Season, you’ll get the BEST VALUE on our tours, there’s less traffic, and far fewer people at the most popular sites. The trade off is that the weather is typically more variable, cooler and wetter. Plus, a few sites may be closed, and the glacial lakes may still be frozen in the spring, although that’s also beautiful! In Peak Season, everything is open, the weather is more consistent, warmer and generally drier, and the glacial lakes are in their full glory. However, our tours cost more, traffic is busier, and the most popular locations on our itineraries can be very busy. Mid Season is somewhere in between.

We take your safety, and the safety of our staff and partners very seriously. Click here for more information.
