The fitness retreat where exercise is FUN!

We have three kinds of trip styles: Multi-sport, Just Hiking, and Just Biking. If selecting ‘Just Walking’ or ‘Just Biking’ you won’t be walking or biking all day, every day. To keep things safe for your fitness level and increase variety for this fitness retreat, you’ll also have fitness classes and workshops.

The multi-sport trips include activities at a beginner to intermediate, moderate pace that works your fitness level. We stop where feels natural, employing fitness guides not ‘tour guides’. The difference is in the pace – it’s designed to give each participant a workout, as the primary goal. With no more than 4 women per instructor, we strive to group compatible fitness levels as best as possible.

  • Biking is on a comfort women’s bicycle. Terrain is paved, sometimes hilly (#WhistlerFlat) valley trail up to 2 hours/day.
  • Walking requirement is to be able to walk up to 2-3 hours comfortably at a moderate pace over undulating terrain.
  • Kayaking; we recommend some swimming ability as a precaution. It’s in a lake, single kayak, for one hour a week, with life-jackets and instruction provided.

The pinnacle fitness retreat experience at Whistler Fitness Vacations is the adventure that comes with two giant mountains, and endless ways to explore. Below is a sample of customized activity that may be part of your fitness schedule, depending on trip style selected.
