We love the fresh, vibrant Spring season, and the birth and renewal it brings – and so many new partners to Wellness Travel BC!
We have a number of new partners that we’re excited to share with you, below.
We now have two regional and six community destination marketing organizations officially supporting our wellness tourism initiative. In British Columbia, we are proud to have new endorsements from the Thompson Okanagan and Kootenay Rockies regions.
And we’re growing across Canada, too! Travel Yukon and the Inn on the Lake in Whitehorse are now a part of our exclusive, expanding portfolio of wellness travel providers. On the bucket list for many, this part of our country offers an abundance of unique experiences to unwind, learn and grow.
Read on to learn more about our newest partners.

Vancouver, Coast & Mountains Region
Fairmont Chateau Whistler – Whistler
Come where there is fresh air and curious wildlife. Where there are lakes, ski trails, bike paths, and culture and rest. With wellness options at every turn, the Fairmont Chateau Whistler affords a welcome respite from your daily rush – beautiful rooms with a view, palate-pleasing, healthy menus, and an elegant spa. This alpine icon is always a pleasure for the senses in the perfect location at the foot of Blackcomb and Whistler Mountains.

Tucked into the shores of Nita Lake, yet easily accessible from Whistler Village, Nita Lake Lodge is a haven for worn out city dwellers. Awaken your senses by connecting with the elements – from warm fires and lake views to rooftop hot tubs and lake crafts, local seasonal cuisine and an organic spa, every moment spent here brings you closer to nature.

One might not associate wellness with an airport hotel – but this property is an exception. Fairmont Vancouver Airport is a glorious retreat between destinations that provides rest and rejuvenation when travelling, whether heading outbound or returning home. With an immersive collection of in-room wellness experiences, a Health Club, and signature treatments from the onsite Absolute Spa, wellness travel will be yours at this award-winning airport hotel.
Kootenay Rockies Region
Kootenay Rockies Tourism
The Kootenay Rockies region has natural hot springs flowing beneath spectacular mountain ranges, providing endless opportunities to expand your overall well-being. Wellness is defined and supported as energy flows here.
Close your eyes. Take in the air that’s so fresh it still has that new air smell. Open your eyes and see the beauty of a canvas that Mother Nature could only paint in an excellent mood. You are here, in the Yukon. Dramatic. Bold. And ever so welcoming as you hit pause, taking time to unwind and enjoy how good you feel. Relax. It only gets better.
Inn on the Lake – Whitehorse
Somewhere over the rainbow lies the quintessential lodge, resplendent in warm hospitality, with mouth-watering food and drink, and the most magnificent views of the famed Northern Lights! Inn on the Lake is the ideal location to park your cares and woes at the front door then nestle into the inviting ambience.
Cariboo, Chilcotin & Coast
Echo Valley Ranch & Spa – Clinton
Though not a new partner, we’d like to give a special shout-out to Echo Valley Ranch & Spa, one of our founding members.
