The Pangea Pod Hotel In Whistler

Pangea Pod Hotel – Tiny Room But Big Value

Whistler's Pangea Pod Hotel is the first pod hotel in Canada to open. Its tiny pods are chic, well designed and big on value.

I've been asked the question numerous times. What's the better place to visit - Whistler or Banff? It depends on what you're looking for is my answer as they are very different despite both being mountain towns. I've read on forums that if you've been to one you don't need to visit the other as they're so similar. I disagree. Both towns have their own unique personalities. And as someone who has lived within 75 minutes…

Getting Out Before The Rapids On The River Of Golden Dreams

River of Golden Dreams Canoe Trip

I had the pleasure of canoeing the River of Golden Dreams for a few hours while on a June trip to Whistler. It's an easy paddle - even for the novice - and the perfect summertime activity.
