Itinerary

DAY LOCATION(S) HOTEL MEALS DESCRIPTION
Day 1
Whistler, BC Canada
The Fairmont Chateau Whistler None

Upon your arrival at the Vancouver Airport, you’ll pick up your rental car and drive the scenic Sea to Sky highway to Whistler. Explore the chic village boutiques, and enjoy dinner on your own (we’ll be happy to assist with reservations or suggestions). Accommodations are at the Fairmont Château Whistler in a Fairmont Gold Room.

Day 2
Whistler, BC Canada
The Fairmont Chateau Whistler None

This morning you have the choice of activities, from relaxing to hair-raising! Unwind at Vida spa with an exclusive treatment, swing your clubs on the green, or hang from a zip-line, whizzing through the trees. The afternoon is yours to spend at leisure, take a break-you’ve earned it! Accommodations are at the Fairmont Château Whistler in a Fairmont Gold Room.

Day 3
Whistler, BC Canada
The Fairmont Chateau Whistler None

Today is yours to spend at leisure. Walk in the footsteps of the world’s greatest athletes, exploring the village that played host to the 2010 Winter Olympics. Observe the local black bears, visiting bear dens and learning about the flora and fauna native to the area. Hike the many trails, from leisurely to challenging! Accommodations are at the Fairmont Château Whistler in a Fairmont Gold Room.

Day 4
Victoria, BC Canada
The Fairmont Empress None

After breakfast you’ll depart Whistler and drive and ferry to Victoria, where you’ll drop off your rental car. The quaint capital is full of charm, with plenty to explore. One of the oldest cities in the Pacific Northwest, you won’t be able to miss the two oldest landmarks – the Legislative buildings and the Empress Hotel. Close to the city centre, Victoria’s Chinatown is the second oldest in North America and its narrow Fan Tan Alley (the narrowest street in Canada at 35 inches wide!) is a must-see – if you can fit.

Day 5
Victoria, BC Canada
The Fairmont Empress None

Today you will be met by your expert guide for a private cultural tour of Victoria. First stop is Butchart Gardens, a 50-acre horticultural masterpiece. Enjoy a stroll through the Sunken Garden and the charming English Rose Garden… Following your visit, continue exploring as time allows: check out nearby Victoria Butterfly Gardens or the Church & State Winery. Otherwise, return downtown to visit the shops on Government Street and Antique Row, or visit Craigdarroch Castle, a heritage mansion and museum. Accommodations are at the Fairmont Empress Hotel in a Fairmont Gold Room.

Day 6
Vancouver, BC Canada
Fairmont Pacific Rim None

Enjoy the exhilaration of racing through the seas in an open-air zodiac on a half-day whale watching tour. The Juan de Fuca and Haro Straits are home to three orca (killer whale) pods, with nearly 100 orcas among them—which means that sightings are all but guaranteed. Board a floatplane in the afternoon, landing in Vancouver. A private transfer will deliver you to your hotel, and the evening is yours to spend at leisure. Accommodations are at Fairmont Pacific Rim in a Fairmont Gold Harbour View Room.

Day 7
Vancouver, BC Canada
Fairmont Pacific Rim None

Today you will be met by a local expert for an insider’s glimpse into diverse and multi-cultural Vancouver.

Discover the thriving residential area known as the West End as you head into Stanley Park to see the famous West Coast Totem Poles. Visit Capilano Canyon, a coastal lush rainforest perched high above the city center. Accommodations are at Fairmont Pacific Rim in a Fairmont Gold Harbour View Room.

Day 8
Vancouver, BC Canada
Fairmont Pacific Rim None

Today is yours to spend at leisure in Vancouver. Revisit a neighborhood which caught your eye on yesterday’s tour, stroll Robson Street, or luxuriate by the outdoor pool soaking up the rays. Accommodations are at the Fairmont Pacific Rim in a Fairmont Gold Harbour View Room.

Description

Everyone knows that Fairmont Hotels and Resorts are a legendary hotel group on the Canadian tourism scene and, since we opened our doors 22 years ago, it’s been quite the love fest between our companies. Simply put, we love hosting guests together.

On this program we’re celebrating and honouring this top hotel group with a trifecta of luxurious accommodation, and a pairing of exclusive local experiences. Tee up in Whistler, where you have your choice of award-winning golf courses, chill in the spa or pick an outdoor adventure… There are tons of options to enjoy. In historic and quaint Victoria, you’ll be charmed by the horse-drawn buggies, bright blooms, and the iconic Fairmont Empress sitting opposite the harbour. A short and scenic floatplane ride away is Vancouver, your final stop on this memorable holiday. Cruise for culture and take in urban pursuits in Vancouver, exploring 1,000 acre Stanley Park and the North Shore. Each leg of your journey is highlighted with elegant Fairmont Gold accommodation, jaw-dropping west coast scenery, and sincere Canadian hospitality.

Perfect Alaska Itinerary

By: Jeff52


Reviewed on: 02 Sep 2014

Entrée Alaska put together the perfect week long Alaska trip for my brother and me. Everything was taken care of and it was a stress free experience. Each activity was exactly what we wanted to do and perfectly planned out. I still can’t believe we got to see Denali national park, fish for silver salmon, hike on a tundra, race Iditarod dogs, and have a helicopter tour of Prince William Sound all in six days. When our kayaking tour had to be cancelled last minute by a supplier, because of dangerous glacier conditions, we were contacted immediately. Entrée Alaska booked the helicopter tour for us in replacement, and it ended up being our favorite activity of the trip. Look no further when trying to decide how to put together a great Alaska vacation.

Great Trip Coordination

Entree Alaska handled the middle part of a 3 week adventure we just returned from. They handled transferring us from our cruise ship to Winterlake Lodge, then on to Redoubt Bay Lodge, and finally back to Anchorage for our flight out of Alaska. Everything came together very smoothly, we very much appreciated how they made it all so easy!

Entree Destinations

Reviewed on: 11 Oct 2017

We booked 6 excursions for a family of 9 at considerable expense. We were told we would have to supply our own car seat for one operator which was very inconvenient No one at Entree or Coastline we’re able to do anything to remediate this. Our excursions were wonderful except for Gastineau Guiding and I would not recommend . The guide was not interesting and they told us a car seat was not required in Alaska.

We had a great experience with Entree. They were very approachable as we designed the trip, answering all questions quickly and completely. They prepared very complete travel documents which ensured that we were prepared. And, they were in touch with the various service providers along the way to make sure our trip went smoothly and answered my questions quickly when they arose during the trip.

Trip to Canada

By: Jim


Reviewed on: 30 Aug 2017

Our experience with Entree Canada was excellent. All of the drivers and cars were very good and the recommended guides were knowledgeable and helpful. They scheduled us on Via Rail Canada from Montreal to Quebec City and the attendants were extremely nice and helpful as were the lady porters. One of our traveling companions lost a hearing aid while on the train and didn't discover it until we reached the hotel, Auberge St. Antoine, who called immediately. The train had departed. Miraculously, the next day Via Rail brought the hearing aid to the hotel. That is really good service. Use Entree Canada if you travel to Canada.

Entree Canada was great. There was a contact at the airport waiting for us to help get the trip started on the right foot. We loved all the guides they recommended for us - they fun and knowledgable, and took us to places both on and off the beaten path. Entree checked in with us during the trip as well to make sure that everything was running smoothly which was a nice touch.
