ITINERARY
Day 1: Arrive Vancouver

Experience Vancouver, a vibrant metropolitan city nestled between the mountains, the vast Pacific Ocean, rainforests and scenic parks. Vancouver is a walkable city, and locals take pride in welcoming visitors with clean, safe and vibrant streets.
Overnight: Vancouver
Day 2: Full day Vancouver Sightseeing

Included today is a Hop-on-Hop-off Pass, which is a fun and flexible way to see the best of Vancouver! Take a bus, stop at a location, browse around for as long as you want and then hop back onto the next coming bus to move onto the next attraction! You will experience downtown Vancouver at leisure as the bus circles through a series of cultural districts, seaside points of interest, and Stanley Park. Clear top buses for stunning views, rain or shine, and full commentary in English, French, Spanish, German, Japanese, Korean and Mandarin. During your stop at Canada Place, we recommend the FlyOver Canada experience nearby. The show utilizes state-of-the-art technology to give you the feeling of flight. You will hang suspended, feet dangling, before a 20-metre spherical screen while the film takes you away on an exhilarating 8-minute journey across Canada, from east to west. Special effects, including wind, mist and scents, combine with the ride's motion to create an unforgettable experience. During the other stops, we suggest exploring Stanley Park and see the Lion's Gate Bridge spanning the entrance to Vancouver's port. The longest suspension bridge in the world when it was completed it offers unparalleled views of the harbour and English Bay beyond. Travel to the Capilano Suspension Bridge and walk among the towering trees of this temperate rain forest and learn the ways of the local Indigenous people. Walk across the world's longest foot suspension bridge to the other side of the river where you can climb to the tree canopy and stroll through the "Treetops Adventure" walkway high above the canyon floor and the river below. To top off a fun-filled day, we have the 2 hours long Hydrobike Explorer experience that allows these eco-friendly watercraft to safely and effortlessly bicycle on water. Water biking makes for a cool and fun adventure, and is a truly unique way to spend time with family and friends, and without worrying about getting wet...unless you want to of course! The water bikes are fun and safely enjoyed by people of all ages as you cruise around at your own pace while taking in all the vibrancy of Vancouver from the ocean. Although no guarantees, keep your eyes open for marine/wildlife as well. Native birds, seals, beavers and even whales on very rare occasions can be seen. Arguably the most beautiful time to explore Vancouver from the water is the evening. Come ride and witness a stunning Vancouver sunset, while gliding across the water and taking in all the gorgeous scenery. Bring some snacks and dress appropriately for a fun evening.
Overnight: Vancouver
Day 3: Vancouver - Whistler

Enjoy the breathtaking scenery between Vancouver and Whistler as your travel along the famous Sea to Sky Highway. Whistler and Vancouver were hosts of the 2010 Winter Olympics and Paralympic Games. During your bus ride you will drive alongside scenic Howe Sound and the Cheakamus Canyon and past the snow-capped peaks of the Tantalus Mountains, before arriving in Whistler Village. Just two hours north of Vancouver, Whistler offers natural beauty and a unique mountain lifestyle like nowhere else. Visit any season of the year and you'll be welcomed like family, swept up by the unique energy in the village and have opportunities to go on adventures that inspire and challenge you "“ or simply relax and soak up the stunning scenery. However you decide to spend your time in Whistler, when you find yourself in the mountains, breathing in the wild air, you will realize there is as much to be discovered inside of you, as outside.
Overnight: Whistler
Day 4: Whistler activity

Zip over the valley between Whistler and Blackcomb mountains while experiencing stunning aerial vistas above Fitzsimmons Creek. The five incredible ziplines on this tour range from 400 - 1100 ft and are joined by a network of suspension bridges, boardwalks and trails. In between ziplines, you will learn fun and interesting facts about the local natural environment. You will be met by your tour guides and fitted with harnesses and helmets before taking a complimentary shuttle from Whistler Village to the Ziptrek base on Blackcomb Mountain. The shuttle takes approximately ten minutes by van. Guests will zipline between the two mountains directly over the river. The ziplines are gravity fed, so you do not have to worry about controlling your own speed. Two tour guides will accompany you on the tour, one guide to connect (launch platform) and one guide to disconnect (landing platform) each and every guest. The educational component provides a unique insight into the surrounding environment on both a local and global scale. Meanwhile, the ziplines provide an adrenaline rush like no other! Later, we suggest that you experience the world record-breaking PEAK 2 PEAK Gondola and the journey between the top of Whistler and Blackcomb Mountains. Step off and you'll find yourself in a ruggedly breathtaking environment a million years in the making. Lucky for you, a network of alpine hiking and interpretive walking trails and a cappuccino bar is also part of the evolutionary process.
Overnight: Whistler
Day 5: Whistler to Victoria by land and sea

You will depart Whistler by seaplane for a scenic flight to Victoria. Harbour Air operates these regular departures throughout the day and the duration of the flight is 1 hour. Arrive at least 45 minutes prior to your scheduled departure time for check-in. The waterfront terminals are very unique locations and giving yourself extra time allows you to take pictures, check out the seaplane activity and of course, enjoy all the extra amenities that flying on a seaplane offers.
