The Perfect 3 Days in Whistler Video
When it comes to Whistler let’s face it, there is so much to do and for most of us just visiting, in such little time. With all of the amazing activities to do, sometimes it can get overwhelming deciding what to do first. We here at the Crystal Lodge know what it is like so we came up with the Perfect 3 Day Itinerary for those of you short on time.
Canoeing or Kayaking down the River of Golden Dreams is a must on any list, it is the perfect family activity and with Whistler Eco Tours you get to go from Lake to Lake, start on Alta Lake and end on Green Lake all while journeying thru Whistler Wetlands down a scenic glacier river.
If you have never been up Whistler Mountain in the summer it is nothing short of spectacular and the best part is when you are up there you can take part in a first class Mountain Top BBQ happening every Friday, Saturday and Sunday with the first seating starting at 6:30.
Start your day second day off with some relaxation at the Scandinave Spa in their 20,000 square foot outdoor spa and the best part is it is only 2 minutes from Whistler Village. Rejuvenate in their hot cold relaxation oasis all while taking in the incredible mountain views.
Whistler has some world class golf courses right in the heart of the village, Nicklaus North Golf & CC is Whistler Golf at its finest. This Jack Nicklaus designed course winds along the valley and has spectacular views of the surrounding area. Watch a float plane take off from green lake that cuts along number 6 or get the chance to see a golden bear yourself, not the real “golden bear” but there are definitely a few black bears that add to this amazing experience.
What is a perfect 3 days without adding in some adrenaline, for your third day we have you covered. The Adventure Group specializes in adventure that gets your heart pumping; Super Fly Zipline combines that exhilarating feeling of soaring through the air and the beauty of Cougar Mountain. You get the opportunity to ride side by side down Canada’s longest line which is 1.3kms and when you are done you can go and experience the Tree Top Adventure. Be a kid again on this incredible unique aerial tree course where there are over 70 obstacles all ranging from a green circles to a double black diamonds. This is one adventure you should not miss!
End off your day sitting on the best patio in town and watch the world go by at The Beacon Pub & Eatery, Whistler new hot spot. This high end pub fare is sure to please everyone in your group including the younger ones, the patio allows children to enjoy with their families from 11:00am to 10:00pm.

A Wonderful Lodge with Beautiful Staff
I loved every minute of our stay here. The location in the village is perfect. The onsite restaurants are lovely. The rooms were beautiful. Ours was a King Suite - with full kitchen, fridge, coffee maker etc. Wish our stay had been longer.
I hope to return to Whistler in the not too distant future and I will not bother looking at any other accommodation options as this place ticked all the boxes.
