Each year Wanderlust Whistler puts on their Farm to Table Dinner, featuring fare from local chefs in a seated, multi-course meal prepared family style. In this experience you’ll enjoy live music, the company of other yogis, and traditional and innovative dishes all sourced from the local region.
The Scandinave Spa in Whistler is a traditional Scandinavian bath house experience- and in our opinion, the best way to unwind after a full day of vinyasa classes! The spa is situated on the edge of the Lost Lake Park in one of Whistler’s most scenic settings. Their signature bath experience has guests go from a hot sauna or steam and then into a cold plunge pool or Nordic waterfall, the last step is to relax in a solarium, in a hammock or by the outdoor fireplaces. It’s recommended to be repeated 3 times, for extra pampering pair with a massage.
