Vineetha Rao Suravajjala
Whistler has risen into prominence in recent years as a great destination for adventure junkies.
…and with good reason, with Whistler offering up a whole host of activities for the adventurous! Here is a list of some of the most exhilarating, exciting things to do in Whistler:

Ice Fishing

Remember the cartoon, with the hole in the ice and the fish line? Do just that, even as you fish for rainbow trout! And with a guided tour, get the transport, gear and if you’re lucky, freshly caught, fish!

Dog Sledding

Get a glimpse of the West Coast rainforest from the back of sled, as you explore these snow filled stretches with a bunch of happy, happy dogs!

Whistler Skeleton

A major attraction in Whistler, the Whistler Skeleton is one of the fastest sliding tracks in the world! The best part, this is an Olympic track, open to public. What are you waiting for?

Take a Ski Tour

Ranging from beginner tours to more advanced levels, take a ski tour for a couple of days, camp and get glimpse of some of the most spectacular views of the Canadian countryside.

Ice Climbing

A great activity for experienced and wannabe climbers, grab some gear and climb ice and tick it off of your list! Pro-tip: Climbing up a waterfall is a definite option, and an experience you don’t want to miss!


Hit those powder slopes and hone those boarding skills on these sweet soles. And you’re a beginner, if you get a guide, you can Leven earn how to split board!

Sea to Sky Gondola

End your adventure filled vacay, with a serene ride on the Sea to Sky Gondola, as you get breathtaking views of the rainforest, snow tipped mountains and more!
