Whistler - Canada - Destinations

Whistler, the city of sport and adventure.

Living in Whistler is ideal for lovers of adventure sports, snow and mountains. If you want to be in a less populated and central city, although more touristy in the high seasons, we recommend this Canadian city.

Whistler is located an hour and a half from Vancouver. It is a highly demanded tourist destination. Every year, more than 3 million tourists from all over the world come to this small resort town to play sports. In winter, it welcomes lovers of skiing and snowboarding; while in summer it receives fans of cycling, kayaking or mountaineering.

Although it is the size of a town, it has all the comforts of a big city: it has a cinema, clothing stores, restaurants and a center that can be explored on foot.

In this note we are going to tell you everything you need to know about this city: climate, transportation, studies, work, accommodation, cost of living and what to do.

What to visit in Whistler

These are some of the essential places if you visit this Canadian city:


Audain Art Museum: The opening of this museum placed Whistler as an artistic reference. Two dozen works by iconic painter Emily Carr, an incredible collection of indigenous masks, and sparkling images by Jeff Wall and Rodney Graham, among others, make a visit to this museum a must.

PureBread Bakery: Founded as a small business in Whistler’s Function Junction Business Park in 2010, it has grown into the largest cafe in town. You can not avoid eating a good breakfast or snack in this cafeteria!
Peak 2 Peak Gondola: It was built to link the two main mountain tops in the area. Along 4.4 kilometers of road you will be able to contemplate forests, cliffs, skiers and bears. An experience that you cannot miss!.

Bear Bar: If at any time you get tired of Canadian food and miss the mother country, you can visit the Bear Bar, where you will find pinchos and portions full of Mediterranean flavors. You can taste serrano ham or potato omelette. It is one of the most recognized bars in the place!.

Squamish Lil’wat Cultural Centre: It is a small but very interesting museum. In it, the guides will explain how the main tribes of the area coexisted for a long time. The cultural center is run by local people and they have a cafeteria where you can try a bannock, which is a bread made by the tribes. You have to try it!.

Pemberton Distillery: If you like spirits, you have to visit this place! This distillery is in an old industrial area. Tours are on Saturdays at 4 pm and are $15 (three samples included).
