INTERNeX Canada: Whistle Weekend Review

After the last weekend we can look back to an amazing Whistler trip! We had so much fun in these two action-packed days! Exciting hikes to lakes and a suspension bridge, fascinating bike rides with gripping lake views, thrilling ziplines and literally breathtaking bungee jumps!

We started off on Friday and our bus ride was filled with the foggy and mysterious-looking landscapes of the famous Sea-to-Sky Highway. In Whistler we checked in the HI hostel and were happy to discover our rooms to be in a private unit with bathroom facilities – just for our group! Friday night we enjoyed the nightlife of Whistler Village: we went for pizza, had drinks and watched sport highlights of the day in a pub, danced the night away in a club where a fire breathing bartender entertained us even more.

Our Saturday trip started with a hike to Lost Lake that actually was quite easy to find :-). Later, some of us rented bikes to continue a sunny tour around the beautiful Whistler lakes. Others had probably the most thrilling experience of their lives: we jumped from a 50m high bridge over the Cheakamus River! A moment that will stick with us forever. In the evening rain took over in Whistler, so we stayed in the hostel and had a tasty dinner with hamburgers and salad. A spacious and fully equipped kitchen was perfect to prepare food for the whole group and was a lot of fun for us all! It was a relaxed evening at HI Whistler: we hung out in the comfy chairs of the hostel’s common area and used the TV room with the huge screen for a movie night!

The hostel also provides a convenient dining room and café for breakfast, which was amazing for an early Sunday morning. We began our day with a hike starting right next to the hostel and discovered a suspension bridge on our way! Some of us went for another adrenaline shot and zip lined high up the Blackcomb Mountain. To end our perfect Whistler experience we took the Peak2Peak Gondola to see the graceful mountains expand in front of us and, once on the top, we spotted the famous Inukshuk Olympic symbol! It was a spectacular view!

Thank you everybody for joining this amazing trip and making it an unforgettable experience!

Cheers,

Xenia

New rafting trip to Whistler 24th-26th of July

You can’t spend all your time in Vancouver! You have to see some of the wildlife to!

Whistler is located just a few hours north of Vancouver and is Canada’s largest tourist resort. Whistler will host the 2010 Winter Olympics but of course Whistler has a lot to offer during the summer e.g. rafting, hiking or bald eagle viewing and a great nightlife.

The Greyhound leaves from Pacific Central Station Friday the 24th of July 1PM and arrives in Whistler Village 2, 45 hours later. Make sure to be on time, since the Greyhound doesn’t wait.

We’ll stay at INTERNeX staff house just 15-20 minutes from the village. In the evening we’ll have a nice barbeque together.
