We took the Via Ferrata tour and as a via ferrata tour guide myself I enjoyed this one a lot. The view is incredible, our guide was great, gave us a lot of info about the surrounding, super interresting. The booking was made super easy eventhough we booked less than 24h prior to the trip. Awesome :D

I did the Via Ferrata in Whistler through the Whistler Alpine Guides Bureau with Matt as our guide. And it was brutally fun and exciting! I do not only recommend the Via Ferrata as an activity in general but also Matt as a guide specifically. Probably one of my better experiences here in Whistler!

The Via Ferrara with Whistler Alpine Guides Bureau is an exhilarating experience. Travelling across the snow-covered glacier you soon reach the first of two steep climbs up Whistler peak. The metal rungs help you in your climb but there are times that you'll have to use the rock features as hand or footholds. Of course, you're safely clipped on the... More

There are numerous day tours available to this mountain village but we decided to take the much cheaper Greyhound bus. And it was good. We left at 10 am, travelling through beautiful lake and mountain scenery and making a couple of scheduled stops at stations along the way. We arrived about midday and had four hours in the village which... More

I absolutely loved everything about the Glacier Hike. It was an amazing experience and Eric the guide went out of his way to ensure it will be an experience I will never forget. Not only did I throughly enjoy hiking on a glacier but I also walked away from the experience learning so much knowledge about glaciers and 'watermelon snow'.... More

Amazing experience. Organised well by the lovely Monica (despite some "early season" rustiness ;0) and executed perfectly by our guide Jon. Shame we didn't pack snow shoes though!

We had a great coach tour with Landsea Tours from Vancouver to Whistler yesterday. Our driver, Warwick, was great fun and went out of his way to take our group to some extra out-of-the way places. Highly recommended and great value for money.

OH MY GOSH!!!! Words can't even begin to describe our adventure! Snowmobiling to 7th Heaven on Blackcomb in May??!! Our adventure began with a customized tour and our guide, Nick.
