Pemberton Feast Of The Fields
Hop in your car and head to Pemberton, a farming community 20 minutes North of Whistler. Sturdy’s Farm, provider of The Chateau’s regional ingredients, invites you to get hands-on by picking your own strawberries, raspberries or visiting the seasonal pumpkin patch and cornfield maze.
Walk On The Wild Side
Bald eagle viewing is quickly becoming one of Whistler's most popular activities. Tour buses whisk you 45 minutes south of Whistler to Brackendale - to the world's highest concentration of bald eagles. The best time to take in these birds is from November to February. The birds perch themselves on nearby trees and patiently wait for their next meal - fresh salmon swimming in the Squamish river. Then they swoop in for the catch. An awe-inspiring spectacle for all ages!
Zip-trek – A Wild Ride
Ziptrek Ecotours features thrilling ziplines from mountain to mountain, canopy walks, boardwalks, and eco-nature walks. Having just completed a major expansion, Ziptrek Ecotours now has a total of 10 ziplines offered on two distinct tours. Departing from Whistler Village, a short stroll from The Fairmont Chateau Whistler resort, a 10-minute shuttle ride will take you from hustle and bustle to pristine wilderness. Your Whistler experience will soar to new heights.
(For a more relaxed pace, Ziptrek Ecotours also offers a Tree TrekEcotour, as pictured above)
