Whistler’s newest luxury experience is an exhilarating test drive down the Sea to Sky highway, and up into the backcountry of the Callaghan for a daring off-road course through some rugged terrain.
These brand new Porsche Cayenne S series are a technological marvel and engineering masterpiece that one would expect to be seen mostly in the city streets. The Canadian Wilderness Adventures has created a specially trained Porsche driving team to show you just how great these racing cars can handle on two wheels.. literally.
You’ll get behind the wheel starting at Whistler’s Four Seasons hotel and begin this 3-hour tour with an introduction to your car and meet your fellow racers. From there you will embark on a drive down the Sea to Sky and up into Callaghan country to test your (and the vehicles) limits. One driver will drive to the course and complete it, after which a second driver may switch out once complete to repeat the course and then return to the village.
This tour is tried and tested by the Premium Experiences team, and we highly recommend!

Finally a missing piece of the puzzle for all-ages entertainment in Whistler… Welcome to The Adventure Group’s Vallea Lumina, an (affordable) and interactive feast for the senses.
After the night falls, complimentary shuttles transport groups of people every 20 minutes fromthe village to Whistler’s Cougar Mountain and TAG headquarters where an immersive wonderland is waiting for the whole family. The crowds quickly disperse as you travel at your own speed, and the tour takes approximately one hour to complete over 1.5 kilometres of walkable terrain.
On arrival, the Wes Anderson-esq “Park Rangers” greet you at the Vallea Lumina gates, and send you off on a self-guided hike through a well-lit path of wonderment through the forest. Here you are immersed in a story of finding a pair of missing hikers and are entranced by the Memory Factory’s talented displays of lights, videos and holograms.
The musical accompaniments are perfectly paired with the scenography to create a wooded adventure that transports you to a mystical and magical land. There are plenty of opportunities to touch, play, explore and engage with the environment along the way.
This unique addition fills a gap that is much needed in the resort of Whistler where groups and families can enjoy themselves in the evening aside from the vibrant bar scene for some clean, healthy fun and a little exercise!

Imagine waking up in a grand luxury chalet, sipping coffee while taking in an exclusive and breathtaking Whistler mountain view from your sprawling balcony. Outside a helicopter is waiting to sweep you away to breakfast on a mountain top overlooking the entire valley and surrounding peaks.
Ready for a little adventure? The helicopter brought along mountain bikes and an experienced guide to take you on an adrenaline-packed journey off the beaten path. Your private group sets off to explore awe-inspiring natural wonders that few other visitors have seen, all the while having the high-speed time of your life.
Conquering peaks and shredding down mountainsides can tire you out and work up an appetite. Your helicopter shows up right on cue to help you switch gears. Back on the aircraft, the pilot flies you up over an ice cap and down the mountainside to ancient natural hot springs. Here, hosts greet you with a Chef de Cuisine-prepared lunch and a private wilderness spa experience to relax tired muscles and rejuvenate you for the evening ahead.
As sunset begins to pour is warm light across the grand landscape, you leave the hot springs behind and enjoy the flight back to your private Belmont Estate among the alpine glow. Whether you feel like enjoying a catered night at home with friends at the exquisite property or venturing into Whistler Village to experience its world-class fine dining and night life, the estate’s staff make any of these wishes come true.
