Nestled in the mountains just 120 kms north of Vancouver, you will drive what is considered to be one of the most beautiful roads in the world and come to the resort of Whistler.

There are excellent photo opportunities all the way, not to mention several beautiful waterfalls to visit before you get to the resort.
