A Whistler holiday can be full of an endless amount of choices from where to stay, what to eat, and what to do. Below is a small list of my go to things in Whistler. Have fun exploring everything Whistler has to offer.
Places to stay
Both of these places are within the village centre and walking distance to everything going on. Easy access to the mountain and grocery stores. Robbie takes great pride in keeping his place an absolute gem and the Pan Pacific Village has everything you’d want a 5 start hotel to offer.
My favourite eats in and around village
If you’re looking for a sit down place I highly suggest Sushi village. It’s located at the base of the mountain just across from Lululemon.
If you are okay with catching a bus, taxi, shuttle or driving 5km to Creekside village in Whistler, then Red Door Bistro is where it’s at. Small, cozy delicious vibes await you there. Reservations are highly recommend.
Rainy day activities
The rain here can sometimes look daunting or put a damper on your plans, however there are still so many things to do if you don’t mind getting a little wet.
- hike around lost lake. You can access the trail system from both the upper and lower village and get fully lost in the beauty and serenity as you make your way to the lake where you can catch beautiful views of Whistler mountain.
- Escape Whistler is a fun exciting escape room challenge for up to 6 people. My favourite is the Down the Rabbit hole, An Alice and wonderland themed escape adventure that I’m sad to say I couldn’t escape in time.
Coffee and cafes
I’ve taken a loving to everything oat milk and I can honestly say that the best place to get an oat milk latte is in Whistler Creekside at Bred. Not only is it a small locally owned bakery, the baristas there make the best coffee. Of course the sourdough bread is amazing also. It’s the only place I buy my bread for the week.
If you want to stay closer to the main village, Portobello in the Fairmont has many tasty snacks, coffee and lunch options. My go to is a dark chocolate mocha paired with the soup of the day and a homemade biscuit.
Yogacara Whistler is located right smack dab in the middle of village. They offer a huge variety of classes and still keep their yoga classes small with a class cap of 15. With a soothing aspect and nice heated floors, I love going to their restorative yoga classes for some me time.
