Iconic Experience: Peak 2 Peak Rider

Spanning the distance between Whistler and Blackcomb Mountains, this feat of engineering offers an 11-minute ride covering 2.73 miles.
What’s more, the gondola journey itself is only half of the experience, with scenic walking trails, mountaintop restaurants, indoor interpretive displays, and wildlife-viewing opportunities awaiting upon disembarkation.
Summer is Whistler’s Best Kept Secret
Whistler is frequently voted as one of the best resorts in the world and truly has something for everyone, both on and off the mountain. Though best known as a skiing destination, this diverse resort is also the perfect spot for a summer adventure.
During the warmer months, Whistler transforms into a gorgeous mountain biking and hiking resort with trails designed for every level. This is an ideal holiday for the outdoor enthusiast as it’s a real chance to appreciate the fresh air and see everything this amazing country has to offer. To experience stunning 360-degree views of Whistler Village, mountain peaks, lakes, glaciers and forests, try the 4.4km PEAK 2 PEAK gondola that spans the peaks of Whistler and Blackcomb mountains.
As well as the natural wonder of this destination, it’s also a great place for spotting wildlife, including the native black bears. The region’s urban landscape is specially designed to accommodate Canada’s natural environment, making this a perfect opportunity for seeing some of the country’s most popular wildlife, as well as the glaciers and vegetation of the natural world.
And the fun doesn’t stop on the mountain! The charming Whistler Village is pedestrianised which makes it so easy to walk around and discover the local restaurants and bars. For those who’d rather stay close to home, the village also has some great shopping opportunities.
With a variety of comfortable accommodations, bars and restaurants both on and off the mountain, plus some of the world’s most exciting summer and winter activities, a holiday to Whistler is a must on any Canadian bucket list.
Vancouver is a coastal gem of natural beauty, nestled in an idyllic setting between the Pacific Ocean and the Coastal Mountain range. This is far from your average holiday destination; nowhere else allows for sailing in the morning and whale watching in the afternoon, shopping in world-class retail districts and indulging in out-of-this-world culinary adventures. There are few places in the world where you can have so many different types of experiences in one trip, and the perfect holiday to Vancouver includes them all!
There is so much to do in this dynamic city. Just 15-minutes from the downtown core you can be in the outdoor paradise of Grouse Mountain, offering outdoor enthusiasts a wealth of activities to try year-round, whether it’s skiing in the winter months or hiking, paragliding and ziplining in the summer months.
Vancouver is also a first-class foodie destination, offering a broad range of culinary experiences. Visit Chinatown, North America’s third largest, for incredible authentic Chinese cuisine and street food or venture to Granville Island Market to enjoy delicious breads, freshly caught seafood and the aromas of ground coffee and spices.
If you have any time to unwind on your holiday, be sure to hire bikes and cycle Stanley Park and the sea wall, stopping at English Bay to watch the sail boats coming in and out of the harbour. This is also the perfect spot to enjoy one of Vancouver’s famous sunsets, with your favourite drink in hand soaking in the city vibes before topping off your night in one of Vancouver’s best nightclubs or comedy clubs.
