July 23, 2009 Whistler Tour

Whistler – The capital of the 2010 Winter Games

A 2 hour drive away from Vancouver, 700 m above sea level, nestled among the mountains is the cozy Whistler Village – the best ski resort town in North America, where the atmosphere of rest and vacation always reign.
Our 8 hour tour to Whistler takes us along the gorgeous “Sea To Sky” highway, which was recently voted the “Most Romantic Road in the World”. Our first stop is at Shannon Falls, which has its own ancient legend…
On our way we stop for a picnic by the alpine Alice Lake.
In Whistler you will have time to explore independently, when you can take the gondola up and observe the endless mountainous panoramas, and later acquaint yourself with the city and its popular art galleries and shops, and equally popular local beer.
On the return journey, we make a short stop at Brandywine Falls, which has a rather jolly story behind it…
