Signature

We use premium hotels that are unique expressions of the region. Often they’ve had a previous life as a monastery or a castle, but in every case they offer an exceptionally comfortable stay.

Bistro

These are stylish 4-star properties that offer a casual and comfortable stay. Often without a 24-hour concierge or room service, they tend to be smaller family-run hotels that are perfect for the region.

Day by Day

Drive through the city of Vancouver and on the Sea to Sky Highway to Whistler for some different hiking options. This evening, dine out in Whistler Village and discuss the following days’ events with your guide.

Bike the Valley Trail along the Whistler Valley past scenic views of the surrounding lakes, forests and mountains. Stop in at the Village for lunch before taking the chairlift up to the top of the mountain for a scenic hike and views of the surrounding peaks.

Hike Joffre Lakes Provincial Park encompassing a series of three lakes, each offering stunning views. Enjoy a picnic lunch before heading back to Whistler, stopping in Pemberton to sample some of the Distillery’s award-winning organic vodka and gin.

The choice is yours today! Bike more of the Valley Trail, take a ride up the gondola or zip through the trees of the old-growth canopy. This afternoon, depart Whistler and head west over the Coastal Mountains, touching down on Vancouver Island.

Drive into the town of Tofino and suit up for a sea kayaking and hiking expedition to Meares Island. Arrive at the Big Tree Trail and take the boardwalk through the cedar forest to the Hanging Garden Tree, estimated to be more than 2000 years old.

Walk endless miles of beaches and along some incredible trails through the lush rain forest before arriving on Florence Beach, a massive crescent of sand facing the open Pacific. Catch an afternoon flight to your hotel for the night in downtown Vancouver.

Circumnavigate Stanley Park and ride to Granville Island, Vancouver’s favourite local market for fresh fish, vegetables and other fine foods. This afternoon, continue to English Bay, Gastown, Chinatown, Robson Street or a myriad of other places where local Vancouverites like to congregate on a sunny summer day.

After a final breakfast at the hotel, you will check out and your guide will transfer you to the airport in time for your flight home. Bon Voyage!
