Connect with nature, enjoy incredible food, and rejuvenate the mind, body and soul in Whistler this June with fabulous wellness specials.
You know you need it: time to embrace the moments of pause and sink into nature’s serenity. Whistler’s mountain environment, with gorgeous, 360° views and tucked away from the stresses of city life, is the perfect environment to disconnect and reconnect with wellness—and June is the best month to take advantage of all Whistler has to offer, including some special events.
Whistler is home to several spas and wellness facilities, offering hydrotherapy, massage, aesthetics treatments and a complete range of body work. Stretch out after a day of exploring with yoga or learn some new dance moves at one of Whistler’s well-equipped studios, gyms and fitness facilities. The temperate rainforest creates the ultimate backdrop for forest bathing, the art of basking in the lush sensory wonders of the forest. and explore Lost Lake, Emerald Forest or Riverside/Farside Trail.
The legendary Whistler Bike Park, award-winning golf courses, breathtaking glacier-fed lakes, lush forests and waterfalls are all linked by a network of paved trails, so you can discover Whistler at your own pace. Zipline adventures offer thrill above the treeline, and ATV tours offer up an exciting day of wilderness exploration. Feeling fit? Check out the Whistler Half Marathon, the Run Comfy Numb trail race or XFONDO all-terrain bike race for a unique challenge.
Whistler has plenty of delicious and diverse dining experiences, but the month’s highlight is the Nourish Spring Series Presented by Cornucopia—a series of wellness-focused culinary events on weekends throughout June.
The Farm to Table Dinner Series on Friday evenings is your chance to savour locally sourced food, expertly crafted into delectable, multi-course meals. On Saturdays, Trip to the Farm takes visitors to Pemberton with wellness expert Astrid Cameron Kent, who leads a rejuvenating journey through four local farms each with a unique story and character. Become the ultimate grill master and learn the secrets to creating perfectly grilled meats, vegetables and seafood at Grillin’ & Chillin’ on Saturday afternoons.
Top it all off with the Wellness Dinner Series, hosted at the exceptional Bearfoot Bistro. Guests will enjoy a luxurious four- or five-course meal prepared by Executive Chef Melissa Craig, one of Canada’s best chefs.
Nothing ends the weekend like Sunday Brunch at Station House on the tranquil shores of Alta Lake. Take a scenic walk to the brunch location with stunning views from the Valley Trail, then enjoy mouth-watering, healthy dishes prepared by renowned chefs.
