If you’re in the Vancouver area, you have to check out Whistler. It’s 90 minutes north of Vancouver and one of our favorite places. Recently, I had the opportunity to go for work (cue the world’s smallest violin) and it showed me that you can get up to a lot of activities in a short amount of time! We went ATVing, played a round of golf at the Fairmont Chateau Whistler, took a seaplane tour to check out glaciers and Garibaldi Lake, and had 2 amazing dining experiences at Alta Bistro and Bearfoot Bistro. Enjoy this photo diary!
Since we’re based in Kelowna, BC, now, I flew into Vancouver early on Tuesday morning. It was a short flight, and I took the Skytrain downtown. In Kelowna, we also have a taxi service that exclusively has Teslas in its fleet. I loved being able to see the projections from the door onto the ground as it was quite dark when I left home. We went for brunch and then rented bikes to take a quick rip around the Vancouver seawall. Afterward, we picked up a rental car to drive up to Whistler.
After checking in at the hotel (we stayed at the Delta this time, which was my first time there, and I was upgraded to a 1 bedroom suite with fireplace, kitchen, and dining room), we went for dinner at Alta Bistro. The restaurant was right across the street from the Delta, so it was a quick stroll over.
This was a jam-packed day as we went ATVing, golfing, and then had a chef’s tasting menu at Bearfoot Bistro (check out that blog post here). The ATV tour was 2 hours, and we only played 9 holes for golf at the Fairmont Chateau Whistler, so that we could get to dinner at a reasonable time.
Seaplane tour day! It was just a 1-hour booking, and it was aptly named Spectacular. The “airport” was on Green Lake, so we parked at Nicklaus North and headed to the dock. It was an epic flight, and I would highly recommend this excursion. It’s a fun way of seeing some of the natural beauty around Whistler from a different perspective.
