Living Earth Tours’ expert guides illuminate the region’s geographical and cultural diversity during day-long tours to Whistler, host of the 2010 Winter Olympics’ nordic sports and home to picturesque mountain views. Guides usher no more than 12 passengers into an eco-friendly Mercedes-Benz Sprinter that winds its way along the Sea-to-Sky Highway. A detour in the city of Squamish grants guests a chance to swap toupees with bald eagles in the Brackendale Eagles Provincial Park bald-eagle sanctuary, and take snapshots of Shannon Falls, one of the largest cascades in British Columbia. Multilingual guides point out sights while accommodating travelers who speak Spanish, English, Portuguese, German, French, or Italian. Upon arrival in Whistler, wayfarers can wander forest trails, visit the Aboriginal Museum & Cultural Centre, or head to the nearest mountaintop to set the world record for longest yodel. After a long day of sightseeing, the hum of the Mercedes’ fuel-efficient engine lulls passengers to slumber before arriving back in Vancouver.
