Vancouver to Whistler

We start our adventure by following an Olympic and Paralympic dream, as we travel from Vancouver to Whistler, the host cities of the 2010 Winter Games! En route, we’ll drive through the famous Stanley Park, over the Lions Gate Bridge and then stop at the (possibly frozen) Shannon Falls along the scenic Sea to Sky Highway. Once in Whistler, we’ll do an orientation tour of the village, followed by a guided tour of the Squamish Lil’wat Cultural Centre to learn about the Indigenous cultures of the Whistler Valley. After an included dinner, the night is yours to experience Whistler’s legendary nightlife scene or simply to recover after a busy day!

Whistler Snow Day

Get your snow adventure on today with one of the many optional activities on offer: skiing/snowboarding, ziplining, snow tubing, ice skating and more! Your Moose guide will help you get organized or will point you in the right direction if you’re looking for a more chill day. Whistler has plenty to offer everyone! This evening, why not bury the hatchet, literally, by trying your hand at axe throwing? It’s a seriously competitive sport here in Canada!


Moose Accommodation: HI Whistler


Whistler to Vancouver

Looking for more adventure? We don’t leave until the afternoon, giving you plenty of time for more activities today! Or take a more passive approach and enjoy the stellar views from the PEAK 2 PEAK Gondola on a 4.4 km, 11 minute journey between Whistler and Blackcomb mountains. Check out the Whistler Olympic Plaza, browse the many shops and galleries, or hangout in a café and people watch. Then it’s back to Vancouver for goodbye hugs at the end of your amazing Moose adventure!


Moose Accommodation: There is no accommodation included tonight. You will need to make your own arrangements. We recommend that you do not book onward travel on this day in case of traffic or weather delays.


There are lots of winter adventure activity options you can try on the Sea to Snow tour to help maximize your experience! Go skiing/snowboarding, ziplining, axe throwing and more. If you’re looking for something a little less active, try tubing, ice skating  or riding the PEAK 2 PEAK gondola for incredible mountain vistas.

The following optional activities are available on this tour:


On the accommodated tour option, accommodation is included for all nights of the tour, in mixed gender, hostel dormitory rooms. Please note that you can request female only dorm rooms, and this is usually possible to accommodate, but we cannot guarantee it.

Most travellers book the accommodated tour option because it provides the best value for your money since we receive discounts from our accommodation providers that aren’t available to the general public. We choose hostels for their budget value, as well as offering great facilities and a warm, friendly atmosphere. By staying in shared dorm rooms you get a chance to meet more people, hang out with other tour guests, and keep the price as low as possible.

Not Interested in Staying in Shared Hostel Dorm Accommodation?

If you’d prefer to book your own accommodation, to stay in private rooms or in alternative properties, check out the non-accommodated version of this tour by clicking here.


The Sea to Snow is the first 3 days of the 7 day Snowhawk tour. After you finish your tour, some of your fellow travellers will continue on to the Okanagan 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!

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