Day 3-8 Whistler

Wrap up warm and allow us to transfer you to Whistler. Whistler’s wintery activities are plentiful, and you’ve got loads of time to explore the many options on offer. Spend your days enjoying the excellent skiing, but at night it’s not time to hunker down. Oh no. Why not take a sleigh ride under the stars, as the horses pull you through pristine snow past the glittering lights of the village to a cosy cabin where you can warm up with another hot chocolate before heading on your way. A snowmobile tour is the ideal way to explore as a family, as you follow wide mountain trails along the Fitzsimmons Creek and enjoy a perfect mix of easy riding and spectacular scenery. And how could you possibly come all the way to Canada without having a go at dog sledding? Let your eager and powerful dog tea lead you into the old growth forest of the Callaghan Valley where you’ll warm up at a trapper’s cabin on Totem Pole Lake, learning about the history of Canadian fur trappers. Join your musher in harnessing and staging the dogs, learn the commands and feel the thrill of driving your own team. You’ll even be able to strap on your snowshoes for a trip through the snow in the Callaghan Valley.
Fairmont Chateau Whistler / Room Only 

Added excursion: The Medicine Trail Snowshoe Experience
Whilst enjoying the festivities in Whislter we have incuded one of the most authentic Canadian experiences to be hand. Snowshoeing. Walk through a forest full of mystery along an old trapper’s path. Learn traditional knowledge while you snowshoe and sample healing teas from plants that grow along The Medicine Trail. Travel deep into a special ancient forest in the Callaghan Valley. Hear a brief history of the area’s traditional uses and ways of the past. Let your imagination go as you gaze upon giant cedar, fir and hemlock trees that provide a canopy high above. Finish back at the caboose for a rejuvenating snack by the fire.
