Take a break from hitting the slopes and hiking the alpine forest to indulge in some fine British Columbia cuisine. In the early evening, meet your knowledgable guide and group of fellow food enthusiasts at the Crystal Lodge Lobby. You’ll get acquainted with some of the hotspots on the agenda before setting off on a 3.5-hour progressive dinner tour.

Start at the famous Barefoot Bistro, home to resident chef Melissa Craig — Canada’s 2008 top chef — as well as an impressive 15,000-bottle wine cellar. Learn the centuries-old French tradition of sabrage, where a sword is used to open a champagne bottle. Your excursion includes four food courses as well as a wine-tasting lesson. You’ll enjoy an array of delectable dishes made with regionally sourced ingredients.

Samples may include a creative amuse-bouche, local wild salmon, cajun-crusted ahi, seasonal desserts and icewine confections at Roger’s Chocolates. (Please check Itinerary section below for sample schedule and menu.) As you try innovative dishes, you’ll quickly understand how Whistler has earned its reputation as a popular food destination.

Your tour concludes in the evening, leaving plenty of time to have a nightcap and a bit more dessert!

Note: To enhance your tasting experience, add the wine pairings upgrade to your tour. Along the way, you’ll sip on delightful samples including a glass of sparkling wine at the sabering lesson, a choice of red or white wine at the next two stops, and a 1-ounce (30-ml) glass of BC's famous icewine at your final destination. Additional drinks available for purchase.

We had a great time walking through Whistler and visiting all the restaurants and shops on this tour. We were two of six people on our tour and our guide was great (whoops- I forgot her name.) We also added the wine tasting and the tastings were wonderful.

Great restaurants and a fun evening

It was a very fabulous way to get the inside scoop on many of the restaurants in Whistler. We had to go fairly early because our tour was through the Christmas holiday period. The restaurant choices were all interesting and delicious. We did the wine pairing, which I would recommend as it really rounds out the evening (there is a blind wine tasting in one of the restaurants ). A real treat was going into the amazing wine cellar in the Bearfoot bistro and learning how to saber a bottle of champagne! Do it early in your trip to get some good recommendations for later!

We had a great time walking to so many great restaurants and shops on the tour. Guide Kristy was so informative and personable. Food and wine were all wonderful, and we had more than enough good food to enjoy. Only wish the weather was more accommodating for the tour so cold for May, we were told.

We ended up having a private tour with our guide Christy. Our food was delicious and it was fun to sample different restaurants, we particularly enjoyed our main course at Quatros. Christy was very knowledgeable about Whistler and gave us tips for the rest of our stay.
