If you’re heading to Whistler this year, there are so many must-see spots for travelers to enjoy. Whether you’re into outdoor activities, relaxation, or a little bit of both, there’s something here that needs to be added to your bucket list. Pack your bags for a weekend adventure or grab that piece of real estate for sale in Whistler and make this place your home! You’ll never run out of things to do with attractions like these.
Brandywine Falls Provincial Park
Brandywine Falls Provincial Park has some of the most gorgeous, scenic views you’ll get in all of Canada. Most visitors come for the stunning 70-foot waterfall, but stay to enjoy a serene picnic lunch on the edge of Daisy Lake. This is a great spot for hikers of every skill level, as well as families with small children. If you’re looking for a long but easy hike with incredible views along the way, check out the Sea to Sky Trail. One of the coolest stops along this trail is The Train Wreck, a cluster of graffitied boxcars left abandoned in 1956.
Considered the “most extreme activity in Whistler,” bungee jumping off Bungee Bridge is a rite of passage in these parts. If you’re looking for some real adventure, look no further than this attraction, which takes you 50 meters above the Cheakamus River (and then drops you down) for the thrill of a lifetime. For those in your party less interested in jumping off a bridge, there is a spectator area where they can enjoy the sights with feet planted firmly on the ground.
Want to jump, but feeling a little bit nervous? Bungee Bridge has a 100% perfect safety record, which should calm you down! Not one accident has ever occurred since they opened operations in 2002.
Of course, any “best of Whistler” list wouldn’t be complete without skiing. While there is plenty to do and see in Whistler, the main reason people come here is for the incredible snow sports. If you’re looking for the best ski experience in the country, Whistler Blackcomb is it.
Whistler Mountain and Blackcomb Mountain were once rivals, but merged into one ultimate ski resort in the early 2000’s. It has been ranked the number one ski destination in North America over and over, proving there’s no better place to experience your favorite snowy sports. Hit the slopes by day, and by night, travel between the two mountains on the Peak 2 Peak gondola ride for the ultimate date-night activity in Whistler.
