WELCOME TO DAY 1 OF THE WEST COAST BEST COAST TOUR! Before heading off on our adventure, we’ll do some quick intros to get to know our new friends and will set off to the local shops where we’ll be stocking up on food for our delicious home cooked meals. With our Vancouver to Calgary trip, we’ll be heading straight for the hot spots on day 1. We’ll start our journey by driving north along the beautiful Sea to Sky highway to WHISTLER! At night, we’ll get settled in and take some time to get to know our new friends a little better. What better way to celebrate the beginning of epic adventure than by enjoying some drinks together and heading on a night out in Whistler Village?!




Day 2 - Whistler


Get ready for some forests, mountains, and lakes as we head out on a beautiful hike in Joffre Lakes Provincial Park. Yes, the climb isn’t the easiest, but the views from the top are beyond rewarding. We’ll have lunch at Upper Joffre Lake with our new wildlife buddies (Canada’s friendliest birds and chipmunks live here!). In the afternoon, you will have the option to do a variety of thrilling adventures. You can choose to be a bad-ass and take the plunge in Canada’s highest bungee jump or to take on the Sasquatch, Canada’s longest zipline. If that’s not for you, then be sure to take the Peak to Peak gondola journey from Whistler to Blackcomb, with views that will not disappoint. Optional Activities:
