As the temperatures plummet, our Canadian winter adventure heats up with epic winter activities that will have you embracing the elements in style. Forget curling up indoors, we’re heading out into the snowy wilderness for a winter whirlwind in the subzero temperatures. It’s no secret that Canada is home to some of the most beautiful scenery in the world so we won’t be letting the thick blanket of snow stop us from getting out there to explore. Kicking off with drinks in downtown Vancouver, we’ll soon leave the city behind and head onwards and upwards to the awesome ski resort of Sun Peaks. Here you will be trekking beneath the stars on a moonlight hike before warming up with toasted S’mores and hot apple cider. We’ll also be skiing and snowboarding our way down the slopes of Sun Peaks, blazing across its forest trails on snowmobiles and racing one another with a spot of snow tubing. From here we’ll carry on to the bucket list beauty of Whistler to enjoy one of the best ski resorts in the world. We’ll be making the most of this Winter Olympic destination, with a glide across the ice at its Olympic ice rink and the option of whizzing down the mountains on skis and snowboards. Whether you’re trying your hand at bobsleighing or hitting up the lively après ski drinks, strap on your snow boots and prepare for the ultimate winter adventure.

Enjoy a leisurely lie in this morning, ready for the first full day of your alpine escape. Today we’re heading to the snowy beauty of Sun Peaks, Canada’s second largest ski resort with all the horizon stretching views to prove it. Along the way we’ll cruise through the amazing scenery of the coastal British Columbia and into the Thompson region, passing by the city of Kamloops and up into the mountainous playground of Sun Peaks. As the sun fades behind the peaks, it’s time to gear up for a moonlight snowshoe trek through the stunning forest trails. With the start-lit skies above and your guide leading you through 1km of snow-draped beauty, this is a magical way to immerse yourself in the snowy wilderness on a moonlight adventure. Upon reaching our cosy winter camp, we’ll then gather around a roaring fire to warm up from the sub-zero temperatures. Here you can glug back some hot apple cider and tuck into the hot gooey goodness of some S’mores. Enjoy this quintessential Canadian experience and feel your cares melt away with the fire-roasted marshmallows.

Rise and shine in Sun Peaks and grab your lift pass up into the mountains. Today you are free to roam the mountain at your leisure, making the most of the amazing slopes here for a day spent skiing or snowboarding in this epic landscape. Feel the adrenalin rush of whizzing down the mountain, passing by a white blur of snow covered forest and hoping for a bluebird day of dazzling views. If you don’t want to carry your gear all the way to Canada that’s no problem, you can easily hire ski or snowboard equipment in resort. Fear not if you’re a beginner, there are optional lessons available on the gentler slopes for those of you ready to embrace your inner skier or snowboarder. After a morning of slicing across the snow, we’ll then meet at midday for lunch before getting back out on the mountain. Then, to get in the true spirit of ski resort life, we’ll meet again for some lively après ski drinks. With your legs burning and cheeks tingling in the cold mountain air, get some drinks in and raise a glass of something hot to your day on the slopes. A well deserved dinner is definitely on the cards, you’ll have a hearty appetite today that’s for sure.
