Imagine cruising down logging roads in a $150,000 luxury SUV with massive boulders to one side, 45 degrees banked dirt walls to the other and a winding chicane half submerged by river water just around the next turn. You splash through the river and climb a steep incline and come to a clearing and can see an endless array of snowcapped mountains. Coming to a full stop, you roll down the window, inhale fresh rocky mountain air and adjust the adaptive off road setting to 'rocks' and cue your 'mega metal' playlist and set off down an incline that would give any gear-head with a kitted out Jeep a reason to yell "whoop!"
Sound too good to be true? Well, real-life adventures like this exist thanks to the folks at Canadian Wilderness Adventures (located just outside the Whistler Village, in British Columbia, Canada) who offer an array of wilderness excursions tuned to appeal to those in search of heart pumping fun. With options such as snowshoeing, dog sledding and summer-time ATV tours (and more) there is an all season outdoor adventure option for all people.
Now that we've got you revved up and looking to book a Porsche experience, we recommend staying at the award winning Four Seasons Hotel as the location and amenities juxtapose perfectly with an off road experience.
Sip margaritas poolside or book a spa (or both) after the dusty and jiggly day of driving. Absolutely make a reservation at Sidecut Modern Steak + Bar and enjoy a steak dinner with a glass or two of wine while recounting the highlights of the day. The only thing that could make a Porsche experience with Canadian Wilderness Adventures more perfect would be to drive a Porsche to Whistler from Vancouver on the world famous Sea-to-Sky highway, a glorious 90 minute drive with jaw dropping views of Howe Sound, the Stawamus Chief in Squamish and inspiring twists and curves along the way.
Special thanks to Porsche Canada for our gloriously green 2019 Porsche Macan, the folks at Four Seasons Whistler for our accommodations and meal at Sidecut Modern Steak + Bar, and of course the incredible team at Canadian Wilderness Adventures.
