Vancouver * Whistler
Vancouver & Whistler are for everyone!
Vancouver is a bustling west coast seaport in British Columbia. The city is one of Canada’s densest, most ethnically diverse cities. Mostly accessible for travelers, this melting pot of cultures has been voted as a best place to live for several years running. A popular filming location, it’s surrounded by mountains, and also has thriving art, theatre and music scenes. The Vancouver Art Gallery is known for its works by regional artists, while the Museum of Anthropology houses preeminent First Nations collections.
Your trip will begin with a trip through the heart of the city on the way to your fully accessible hotel room. A curbside meet-n-greet will ensure an easy transition to your room. Once settled, you can relax on site, or easily tour some of the downtown core, truly an example in accessible travel. Dinner is on your own at your hotel, or at a local restaurant.
Vancouver Day 2 & 3
Days 2 & 3 will start with breakfast at the hotel, followed by a fully accessible days trip. Many tours are available in Vancouver, and these days can be fully customized to your liking. One suggested tour is a fully accessible coach tour with stops in Canada Place, Robson Street, Stanley Park, English Bay, Granville Island, Chinatown, Gastown & the Vancouver Lookout. This tour takes about 4 hours and is an excellent way to see several Vancouver highlights. All of the places seen are easily visited a second time using Vancouver’s highly accessible transit system, or through private hire transportation options. Travel-for-All can make all of these arrangements for you upon request.
Day 3 would be an excellent time to take in the world renowned Vancouver Aquarium. The Aquarium is a self-supporting, non-profit society dedicated to effecting the conservation of aquatic life through display, communication, public programming and education, research and direct action.

Whistler – Day 4 & 5
The earlier you start in the morning, the earlier you arrive at the enchanting Whistler Village.
Whistler is a fully accessible town north of Vancouver, British Columbia, that’s home to Whistler Blackcomb, one of the largest ski resorts in North America. Besides skiing and snowboarding, the area offers snowshoeing, tobogganing and ski jumping at the Olympic Park, a venue for the 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympics. The hub of Whistler is a compact, chalet-style pedestrian village at the base of Whistler and Blackcomb mountains.
Whistler Blackcomb’s mission is to create wonderful memories for their guests, again and again. All guests, regardless of ability, deserve the very best mountain experience possible. Whistler Mountain is wheelchair-accessible with gondola service to the top of Whistler Mountain during winter and summer months. The Peak 2 Peak Gondola is available for sightseeing tours only.
Day 6 & 7
With so much to see and do, your visit to an accessible Whistler will fly past, and on day 6, you’ll be headed back to Vancouver for one more night before heading home. The city is your playground, and you can do anything from walking the Seawall at Stanley Park to relaxing in your luxurious downtown hotel.
