Save time and let us plan an effective and memorable event for your group.
Travel to Vancouver, British Columbia and experience a cosmopolitan city that is considered to be one of the most desirable places to live in the world. As the “Gateway to the Pacific”, Vancouver is a vibrant, modern city that reflects the rich cultural diversity of its people. The Coast Mountains and Pacific Ocean surrounding Vancouver offer an outdoor playground waiting to be discovered. The award-winning Rocky Mountaineer takes you on a comfortable journey through scenic mountains and lush forests to the resort town of Whistler BC where you can begin your next adventure.
Between 6:45am - 7:15am a representative will pick you up from select downtown Vancouver hotels and shuttle you to the North Vancouver Rocky Mountaineer train station. The train departs at 8:00am. The "Coast Classic" or "Glacier Dome" rail service, features quality service, extended legroom, unlimited access to the Henry Pickering Open Observation Car and scenic views through large picture windows. Enjoy breakfast on the train during the 3.5-hour oceanfront route along Vancouver’s impressive North Shore alongside the Howe Sound, Shannon Falls, Squamish, Brackendale, then further on through the Cheakamus Canyon and Brandywine Falls. Once arriving in Whistler at 11:30am, you will be shuttled into Whistler Village by 12:00pm to spend the afternoon browsing through shops, or enjoying optional add-on activities such as Ziptreking, ATV Tours, Bungee or the Peak 2 Peak Gondola. Along with glacier-fed streams, numerous golf courses and other outdoor activities, Whistler offers a wide selection of excellent fine-dining restaurants to meet every taste. After an outstanding meal, head back to your hotel, an ideal way to rest prior to your exciting rafting adventure tomorrow.
After a comfortable night at your hotel, our shuttle driver will pick you up in our rafting van (from select locations only in Whistler) and bring you down to our rafting adventure base in time for one of Canada's premiere whitewater rafting adventures. The Squamish and Elaho (EE-la-ho) rivers, located south of Whistler, provide the backdrop for this extremely popular river rafting journey. We raft these rivers more often than all other outfitters combined, ensuring your experience with us will be the very best possible. This river system offers plenty of challenges for both novice and experienced rafters, allowing you to create an experience you’ll never forget.
Along with some of North America’s most exhilarating rapids, your 2 hour river journey will take you through approximately 16 kms (10 miles) of British Columbia’s most inspiring wilderness. Don’t forget to take time to reconnect with our world-class scenery including old growth forests, dormant volcanoes, towering glaciers, and stunning waterfalls that cascade hundreds of feet toward the river.
