Make the most of the colder weather with some exhilarating outdoor activities that are only available in the winter months, including snowmobiling, dog-sledding and snowshoeing - all of which are included. After long days of discovering the beauty of the scenery it will be time for you to sit back, relax and enjoy everything this famed village has to offer. This is Canada's winter at its finest; your only job is to explore it at your own pace.
Today you will transfer Vancouver Airport to your overnight accommodation in Whistler. Check in to your hotel before enjoying the rest of your day at leisure, exploring the streets of this mountain hamlet.
Enjoy a leisurely breakfast this morning with some time to relax. This afternoon, strap on your snowshoes for a trip through the snow in the Callaghan Valley. This is the best way to get up close to the awesome scenery that Whistler is renowned for - make sure you bring your camera so you can snap the perfect shot of the snow-capped mountains and pristine lakes that you pass on your journey.
After spending a morning at leisure, this afternoon you will embark on an exciting snowmobile tour of Whistler. This snowmobile ride is ideal for families and first timers and follow wide mountain trails along the Fitzsimmons Creek watershed - the perfect mix of easy riding and spectacular scenery. Spend this evening dining in one of Whistler's world-class restaurants and using the facilities at your fabulous hotel.
This morning you will experience the thrill of a lifetime with a dog-sledding excursion. Let your eager and powerful dog team lead you into the old growth forest of the atmospheric Callaghan Valley. Stop briefly to warm up at an authentic trapper’s cabin on Totem Pole Lake, and learn about the history of Canadian fur trappers. Join your musher in harnessing and staging the dogs - soon you will be at one with these majestic creatures and they will be under your command from the second you let go of the brakes. This is an adrenaline rush like no other.
The rest of the day is yours to relax or explore at your own pace.
Today is your final full day in Whistler, so we suggest you spend some time exploring the sights and sounds of this famous winter hamlet. Visit the Olympic Village, gaze in awe at Alexander Falls and take a trip into the skies on the Peak2Peak Gondola - the views at the top will leave you speechless. Make sure you buy some local souvenirs to commemorate your fabulous trip!
Today you will wave goodbye to your adventure-filled holiday in Whistler as you transfer (included) back to Vancouver Airport for your flight back to the UK
