Add in hundreds of kilometres of hiking and mountain bike trails and five lakes within the city limits, there are activities to suit every visitor and resident in every season. It’s no surprise really that there is an abundance of beautiful Whistler wedding venues.

Here is a guide to our favourite Whistler wedding venues, including a few notes and photos of each.
