Things To Do

Surrounded by soaring mountains, deep-blue oceans and coastal rainforests, Vancouver offers the host of outdoor activities and cultural amenities expected of a world-class city. Below are some popular activities and attractions, and you can find additional things to do at the Tourism Vancouver site

Whistler Blackcomb

Voted the number one ski resort in North America, Whistler is an awe-inspiring scenic two-hour drive north of Vancouver. Blending the charm of an alpine mountain village with the amenities of an urban centre, after a day on the hills, stroll the pedestrian-friendly cobble streets and experience the après ski, fine dining, and vibrant nightlife Whistler has to offer. Additionally, as a conference delegate, receive a discount on lift tickets and rentals.
