INTERNeX is going to Whistler!

Sad that you missed out on our last trip to Kelowna or excited to go on another trip with the INTERNeX family? Then this trip to Whistler on the 25th of March is perfect for you!

20106059240_04203fb028_oWhistler is a must see in Canada! It is a beautiful city close to Vancouver. It is mainly known as a skiing and snowboarding resort. In 2010, Whistler even hosted some events of the Winter Olympics. We will not be able to go skiing or snowboarding, but there are a lot of other activities to do!

Our one day trip includes a sightseeing tour on the beautiful Sea to Sky Highway, a stop in Shannon Falls and a walking tour in Whistler Village. So make sure to take your camera with you on this trip. After the sightseeing tour we have some free time. You can choose to ride the peak 2 peak gondola on top of the mountains, which will give you a beautiful view over the city and the mountains. Or do you still have snowmobiling on your bucketlist? Then the Whistler day-trip is the perfect time for you to cross it off. You can also let your inner child free by doing some snow tubing in the tube park. Other activities are snowshoeing, dog sledding or sleigh riding and if you want to do something more extreme, try out bungee jumping or ziplining!

INTERNeX Explorer: The Rocky Mountains -Part 1

Since we are going to the Rocky Mountains at the end of March, I thought it’d be a great idea to learn a bit about the places we will visit during our trip! The first day we will be arriving at Valemount, BC!

Valemount is a town surrounded by the beautiful BC mountain ranges, Cariboo, the Monashee, and of course the Rockies. Today, this place welcomes travelers all year round with fun and exciting activities such snowmobiling, heli-skiing in winter, hiking, camping, and trail riding, and whitewater rafting in summer! You can also just simply enjoy the quiet serenity as you breathe in the fresh mountain air!

Mount Robson

But in the early 1900’s, Valemount played an important role in railway construction between the Great Northern and Grand Trunk Railroads, which later became the CN Railway System.  In 1928, Valemount became a railway station, and you’ll be able to see the historic remains and artifacts on display at the Valemount and Area Museum!

It is also the closest town to Mount Robson, the TALLEST of the Canadian Rocky Mountains! As for shopping, they have really unique and locally made gifts that you can’t find anywhere else!
