If you are an adventure traveller, a weekend in the big city may not be sitting on the top of your adventure bucket list. We are blessed to live in a city that is close to nature. Here are some new ways that you can get out and enjoy the fresh mountain air this winter in Vancouver and Whistler, BC.
Into The Wild tour company in Vancouver offers biking and hiking tours for people of all ages. Day trips and private outings for groups of 6 to 12 people will take you out of the concrete jungle and into the surrounding mountains and valleys.
Their One Day Escape will take you hiking through Lynn Canyon Park to admire the ancient old growth forest, across suspension bridges and over waterfalls. Then, you will drive to Pitt Meadows for a relaxing bike ride along the Trans Canada Trail.
This 7-hour tour is a great way to escape the hustle and bustle of the city and costs only $125 per person. Book a One Day Escape or arrange your own private trip at www.intothewild.ca
Voted among the top ski destinations in North America, Whistler Backcomb Resort receives over 2 million people visitors each year. Being the largest ski resort in North America, you can shred the slopes from dawn to dusk and only touch a fraction of the mountain.
So how do you ensure that make the most out of your ski trip? Hire a Private Mountain Guide! Extremely Canadian has been operating in Whistler BC since 1994. They offer Steep Skiing Clinics, Private Lessons and Backcountry Adventures in Whistler and other exotic skiing locations around the globe.
