It didn’t happen unless it’s on Instagram right? We’ve gathered up the 6 most Instagrammable places in Whistler that you just have to stop at for a photo!
The Train Wreck
Deep in the Cheakamus woods lies a train wreck from the 1960’s. Cars are scattered throughout the trees and over the years, graffiti artists have covered the remnants with colourful art work, making it a living art gallery. The juxtaposition of the cars and artwork make it one of the most popular spots for photos outside of the village.
The Olympic Rings In Whistler Village
Chances are, you’ve seen a photo or two of the iconic Olympic Rings. Located right next to the Olympic Plaza, the site of the Whistler Medals ceremonies, the rings are one of the most popular Olympic Legacies and not to mention, spot for photos! See how creative you can get with poses on the rings.
Look to your left as you drive into Whistler and you will see Black Tusk, the last remaining part of a dormant volcano. Although its black peak can be seen from just about anywhere in Whistler, there are a few spots that provide a better view. The peak of Whistler and the Callaghan Valley are just to name a few.
Guaranteed to be a hit on your Insta feed, this 70 metre waterfall is simply breath taking. Located South of Whistler, it is a short walk in from the parking lot. If you plan to visit its bottom, be prepared for an unmarked and unofficial hike in.
Peak 2 Peak Gondola
The Peak 2 Peak has Instagram worthy moments from start to finish. Snap a picture of the trams travelling through the valley or wait for the one with the glass bottom to get a birds-eye perspective of Whistler.
This might be one of the most challenging Insta-moments on our list. You see, this view of Cheakamus Lake is from Panorama Ridge, an 11 hour round trip hike. Don’t write it off yet, in addition to this unparalleled view, wild flowers and alpine meadows are part of the trip, making it full of beautiful photo ops for your Instagram feed!
Come for the adventures and don’t forget to snap a few photos along the way- Whistler is beautiful and your Instagram can reap the benefits of just that!
