The Rocky Mountains & Whistler Holidays

Find yourself at one with nature at the mountain resort of Whistler or amidst the jaw-dropping scenery of the Canadian Rockies where the panoramas of soaring peaks, lush alpine meadows, towering waterfalls and impossibly blue lakes will live long in the memory.

Nestled in the Coast Mountains, legendary Whistler is Canada's premier year round mountain playground. Casual adventurers and outdoor purists alike are beckoned by incomparable skiing and boarding, golf, mountain biking, canoeing and ziplining. The forested mountains, meandering trails, rivers and lakes blend seamlessly with the comforts and cafés of charming Whistler village.

Home to Mount Robson, the highest peak in the Canadian Rockies, as well as Canada’s only desert and sprawling lakes, the Thompson Okanagan region’s natural wonders are only matched by an active spirit and world-class wine region. Foodies can taste wine and hop between farmers’ markets; families will love the many sandy lakeside beaches; and outdoor enthusiasts can take their pick from golfing, hiking, biking and skiing.

There simply aren’t enough superlatives to exaggerate the splendour of the Canadian Rockies’ soaring peaks, lush alpine meadows, towering waterfalls and impossibly blue lakes. The impressive Banff and Jasper National Parks are your go to places for exploring these majestic peaks along with Moraine Lake; Lake Louise; Maligne Lake; Miette Hot Springs; the scenic Pyramid Lake area; Athabasca Falls; and the unforgettable Columbia Icefield, where you can take a guided glacier walk, step out onto the Glacier Skywalk or journey by Ice Explorer onto the Athabasca Glacier.

Recreational opportunities also abound in both Banff and Jasper National Parks, with hiking, biking, cross-country skiing, excellent wildlife watching and superb rafting and canoeing all available.
