How to Plan the Perfect Whistler Retreat

The perfect Whistler retreat is within reach. Whistler, ranked as the number one resort in North America for several years in a row now, offers the perfect vacation for everyone.

Justa Jeskova Whistler Apres

Whether you go for the arts, adrenaline, or après, Whistler serves it up. 

Problem is, how in the heck can you choose from everything available to find the perfect set of activities for you (and your entourage)?

Well, this is Whistler after all. We've got you sorted. Obviously, you'll want to stay at the Aava. Steps away from Whistler Village with a fun, social staff tuned in to the heartbeat of the village scene, you've taken care of the most important bits just by making that decision.

We'd be lying if we didn't make that pitch right away. Of course we want you to stay with us. We think (know) our hotel and staff are awesome and we can't wait for you to come in after a day's adventure with your (complimentary) Go Pro and show us what you've got.

What Makes You Smile?

But beyond that, what makes you smile? What floats your boat? Over the years, Whistler has moved from being "only" the best ski resort in North America to hosting an array of events throughout the year that make it a mecca for arts, culture, adrenaline junkies and foodies. 

What makes your heart beat just a bit faster? Would you like to be a part of the arts and culture scene? Take a look at the Arts Itinerary at Tourism Whistler. You'll get a taste of poetry competitions, photography showdowns, First Nations art and culture, orchestras under the stars, and more. 

Perhaps Food is Your Thing?

If so, Whistler is your place. All year round, you can simply eat and drink your way through Whistler, tasting delights from around the world, with a special focus on West Coast cuisine. From casual to gourmet, you can find your heart's desire in the most unexpected places in Whistler. 

Try the Food and Drink Itinerary to sample just some of what is available to try out year round in Whistler.

Starting with Cornucopia, a true taste extravaganza, to the culinary journey that is the Barefoot Bistro, Whistler offers such a range of tastes and styles that you'll never go hungry.


Hard to imagine a Whistler vacation without some rejuvenation. Just simply breathing the air in Whistler can be a form of rejuvenation and when you add in a cup of tea on the edge of Lost Lake, you've got yourself a world-class retreat.

But what if you took a day or two at Scandinave Spa while you're here? The silence, the water, the serene aesthetic combine to give you back your soul, one moment at a time. By the end of the experience, rejuvenated only brushes the surface of how you'll feel.

Take Part 

Whistler offers what you need, so take the time to combine the pieces you need for your ultimate retreat vacation.
