What you'll do

Your adventure will begin by an amazing drive through the highlights of Vancouver downtown and the majestic Stanley Park. Enjoy scenic views of the ocean, mountains, and giant trees along Stanley Park's famous Seawall. You will then cross the suspended Lions Gate Bridge that opens up to the beautiful mountains of the North Shore.
It gets better - the 40 minutes drive along the Howe Sound Fjord and the coastal mountains will amaze you.

We will then enjoy the Sea to Sky gondola, a thrilling adventure for all ages providing the best views of Shannon Falls, Howe Sound and the famous Squamish Chief climbing area from 885m high.

Once on top, the backcountry opens up. Our hike highlights include the suspended bridge, viewing platforms, and demonstration forest, with snowshoeing in the winter. If we are lucky and attentive, we can also spot some wildlife!

We will complete our tour with an option for a bite to eat at the cozy food and beverage service area with the breathtaking mountain and ocean views before returning down the gondola for our spectacular drive back to Vancouver.
