Vancouver - Only 115km from Whistler, enjoy world class shopping, gourmet meals, outstanding live entertainment, sporting events, theatre, outdoor adventure, spectacular sights and attractions.

Victoria - Beautiful and historic Victoria is a fantastic place to see. Known as the Garden City and is easily accessible from Whistler with direct daily scheduled float plane service in the summer months. Or choose to take a scenic ride with BC Ferries.

Okanagan - B.C. has some stellar wine, but it’s a secret that few outside the province know about. A majority of the more than 150 B.C. wineries are located in the Okanagan Valley, which means a trip about five hours east into the dry, near-desert region is worth it.
