Looking for a Halloween destination? Head to Whistler, British Columbia, where the annual Heavy Hitting Horrorfest takes place Oct. 30. Western Canada’s largest and most enduring independent horror film festival showcases horror films, ranging from hilarious to scary cinematic creations soaked in fake blood. Filmmakers compete for the Silver Skull Trophy, while costumed horror fans enjoy films, music and fun, including a red carpet pre-party.

Another edgy option stay in Whistler: forged axe throwing. A surprisingly popular activity, considered a sport by many, Forged Axe Throwing takes place in an indoor venue and makes for a unique team-building event or friendly family competition. Experienced coaches lead participants through the finer points of embedding an axe in a wooden wall; sessions range from hour-long drop-ins to private lessons. Forged Axe Throwing even brings an event to you via its Mobile Axe Throwing Trailer, accompanied by two staff members who provide a safety briefing and coaching. When you’re ready for the big time, join the Axe Throwing League in Whistler, hosting weekly Monday-night sessions, nightly tournaments and a final Throw-Down extravaganza.

Amantaka Review

You know what you’re going to get at an Aman hotel, and also you don’t. Expect peerless service, obsessive attention to detail, architectural elegance worthy of a fashion magazine, a holistic approach to wellness and astounding levels of comfort. But each property is also intimately connected to its setting, and that’s where the surprises lie. For instance, finding yourself on your knees on a sidewalk in Luang Prabang handing out sticky rice to Buddhist monks at 5:30 a.m. isn’t something we expected.
