Shannon Falls, Canada

Following pickup from Vancouver (select hotels only), you'll travel by mini-coach to Whistler through the scenic Sea-to-Sky corridor. Along the way, you'll enjoy spectacular views from the peaks of the Tantalus mountains to the depths of the canyon of the Cheakmus River.

Next, drive up to 2,000 feet (609 meters) above sea level to reach stunning Whistler Valley. Here there are a number of activities to add to your itinerary available at an additional cost, including the record-breaking Peak 2 Peak gondola, zip-line adventure, snowmobile tour, ATV 4-wheeler tour, bear viewing and more.

On your journey home you will have the opportunity to stop at Shannon Falls, the third-highest waterfall in Canada. Take a walk to the base for some great photos of this natural wonder or step back and admire the power and beauty of the cascading waters before continuing your scenic journey back to Vancouver.

This was a great way to get from Vancouver to Whistler. Our guide was very knowledgeable, and narrated on the way to Whistler. Once there, we were given lots of time to explore the village, or engage in other activities. The Peak to Peak gondola was one of the options, and if you are not afraid of heights, this is a must. The views are spectacular.

Oh my gosh - this was the best tour ever. This was on my birthday, and all I wanted selfishly!! was to see bears, moose and have some snow...not too much to ask hey.
We went to Porteau Cove, Squamish Cultural Centre - these were lovely places, we visited Alexander Falls - magical with snow falling, saw a black bear beside the road on the way to Alexander Falls. Whistler Village even had some snow - you get to Whistler and are left to do your own thing and then return to the tour bus. We had only a small tour group which was good - I think only 5 or 7 people only in total. We also stopped at Shannon Falls on the way back it was too overcast on the way up so tour guide swapped it over. Tour guide sorry can't remember his name was really good, very knowledgable, and found us a bear!!!! Would highly recommend this tour - you may not get bears and snow but it is still a great tour. Thankyou

Our tour operators were very experienced. Our driver, Khaled, was local to the area and was able to give us some interesting insights to cultural aspects of the area during the tour.
The drive from Vancouver to Whistler is bout two hours but this is interspersed with stops along the way. Fortunately, our guide had the nouse not to just jabber away, quite unlike many tour guides we've come across..
We were collected and returned to our hotel within minutes of the times stated on the day.

There's not a lot to do in Whistler village as it's designed for snow sports mainly we went during June but there is the large gondola lift and great walking/cycling available.

Our tour was fabulous. After contacting Viator, we learned that add-ons were available through Land/Sea Tours so we made a reservation to zip line while we were in Whistler. It would have been nice to have been contacted by the tour company prior to our trip to learn of the many add-on options... Such as horseback riding, off-road tours, bungee jumping just to name a few.
