Whistler, British Columbia

Winter, spring, summer, fall, Whistler is an all-seasons playground offering adventure and unparalleled natural beauty. Located about a two-hour drive from Vancouver, the journey to Whistler is half the fun—the sweeping mountain and lake vistas you’ll see along the Sea to Sky Highway, the roadway that takes you into Whistler, are simply spectacular. If you are a skier or snowboarder you know Whistler and Blackcomb boast some of the best slopes in the world—you can actually ski in the summer too on Blackcomb’s Horstman Glacier. Rafting, hiking, fishing, horseback riding, bear viewing and bike riding are just a few of the amazing summer pursuits in the area, and though you might think it would be quieter in Whistler in summer, it’s actually just as busy as winter! Whistler Village lies at the heart of the area and is packed with great shops, restaurants and hotels, and our pick for a heavenly honeymoon stay is The Fairmont Chateau Whistler. Built at the base of Blackcomb Mountain, this castle in the mountains is
the ultimate lodge escape. For an extra-sweet stay, splash out on a mountain view suite where you can enjoy views of Blackcomb or neighbouring Rainbow Mountain. Other hotel musts: a spa visit and dinner at The Grill Room for one of the best meals in Whistler.
