West Coast Winter
This trip combines four days of winter activity in Whistler with three days of more urban pursuits in Vancouver. With just two hotels—both truly luxurious—you’ll have the opportunity to unwind and really enjoy your surroundings. And while some things have been organized for you, there is plenty of unstructured time for you to explore on your own. Highlights include dogsledding and ziplining in Whistler, and a private tour of the different faces of Vancouver, a city famed for its cultural diversity. Known for its mild winters, British Columbia’s west coast offers plenty to do and see during the winter season.
