British Columbia has some of the most stunning scenery in the world, which starts with a beautiful wind up The Sea to Sky Highway to Whistler. We can book any transfer for you.

Stop 1: Vancouver

No trip to Canada would be complete without a stop-off in Vancouver, the country’s largest west coast city. Whether you’re after world-class shopping, live entertainment, sporting events, theatre, gourmet meals, spectacular sights and attractions – Vancouver has it all.

If you have any ideas on the accommodation you would like to stay in, please let us know. One hotel that stands out for us is the Fairmont Waterfront Vancouver, which  has the convenience of a transfer service stop to Whistler just outside the hotel, as well as amazing views over the harbour and Coast Mountains in the distance.

Vancouver

Get to Whistler in under two hours with great connections for quick and easy access. There are coach and shuttle bus options, private vehicle charters, helicopter charters and floatplane (seasonal). Or hire a car and drive Highway 99, a scenic mountain highway.

Stop 2: Whistler

Set off to the world-famous Whistler, North America’s largest ski resort. With 8,171 acres of terrain to explore across two mountains (Whistler and Blackcomb), 16 alpine bowls and 3 glaciers; this resort is a massive powder playground. The unbelievable snowfall sits at an average of 11.7m meaning there is no fear of running out.

People are attracted to Whistler for different reasons. Some are after the pedestrian village for its ski-in/ski-out accommodation and many are there for the amount of activities on offer. From the legendary après, five-star dining, shopping, spa days and nightlife to ziplining and snowshoe experiences, Whistler has it all.

One  property with up to 40% off if you book before the 15th November 2019 is The Westin Resort and Spa. This modern property is based in a central location in Whistler Village with a range of facilities to enjoy such as indoor/outdoor heated pools, sauna, steam room and two whirlpools.

It takes around 5.5 hours to get to Sun Peaks from Whistler. There are daily connections, where individual shuttle bus seats are available, or you can get group charters.

Stop 3: Sun Peaks

As Canada’s second largest ski area, Sun Peaks naturally has a great mixture of deep steeps, long cruisers, glade zones, powder stashes, and corduroy groomers within the 4,270 acres of piste. Three skiable mountains surround this European style alpine village, which is filled with charming cafes and boutique shops. Sun Peaks receives around 6 metres of snow annually, however the resort also enjoys 2,000+ hours of annual sunshine.

Sun Peaks

You could stay at the 5-star Sun Peaks Grand Hotel, which is based in an amazing location, with the town and piste/lifts on the doorstep. Enjoy the great facilities such as outdoor pool, hot tubs, steam room and sauna. The hotel also has a variety of retail shops, a lively sports bar and nightclub.

The Journey Home from Canada 

After a fabulous trip exploring the best of Canada, it is time to head home.

One option would be to head to Kamloops airport, only 50 minutes away from Sun Peaks Resort. There are individual shuttle seats available daily to the airport. From Kamloops, take a short flight to Vancouver in just under an hour and catch your flight back to the UK.

Or you could return back to Whistler and transferring to Vancouver from there. The route you take is totally up to you.

Guaranteed, this is an unforgettable trip with amazing memories from start to finish. This is worth considering if you are keen to explore the best of Canada and what BC has to offer.
