The Best Day Trips from Whistler

Whistler, the sparkling jewel in the crown of British Columbia's outdoor playgrounds, is not just a winter wonderland but also a hub for summer adventures. While the village itself offers a plethora of activities, the surrounding areas beckon with their own unique charms. For those looking to explore beyond the ski slopes and mountain bike trails, here are some of the best day trips from Whistler, brought to you by Happytripz.

Explore the Mystical Squamish

Just a scenic drive south of Whistler, Squamish sits at the crossroads of ocean and alpine, offering breathtaking vistas and activities for all. Scale the heights of the famous Stawamus Chief for a climber's paradise or take a more leisurely approach and enjoy the Sea to Sky Gondola for panoramic views. Squamish is also home to the Squamish people, whose rich cultural history adds depth to your visit.

Discover the Serenity of Pemberton

Head north to the tranquil town of Pemberton, where time seems to slow down. Surrounded by towering peaks and lush farmland, Pemberton offers a peaceful retreat. Enjoy a round of golf, visit a local distillery, or take a horseback ride through the verdant meadows. Don't forget to stop by the beautiful Joffre Lakes, a trio of turquoise glacial lakes that are a photographer's dream.

Garibaldi Provincial Park: A Hiker's Heaven

For the outdoor enthusiasts, Garibaldi Provincial Park is a must-visit. With its stunning alpine scenery and a network of trails, it's perfect for both day hikes and longer backcountry adventures. The park's centerpiece, Garibaldi Lake, is a jewel-toned marvel that rewards hikers with its serene beauty.

  • Whistler Train Wreck Trail: A quirky slice of history combined with a forested walk, the Train Wreck site features several graffitied train cars scattered along the trail.
  • Brandywine Falls Provincial Park: Just a short drive from Whistler, this park offers a spectacular 70-meter waterfall and lovely picnic spots.
