Ride the Spectacular Sea to Sky Highway


Today we will follow one of the world's spectacular highways, the Sea to Sky. Leaving downtown Vancouver, the beauty of our Coastal Mountains plunging in to the Howe Sound Fjord continue all the way up to Squamish.

Stopping at the Cypress Mountain viewpoint, we will first get a great view of the Metro Vancouver area, then on to Horseshoe Bay for a coffee or snack, and a visit Shannon Falls, the third highest waterfall in BC at 335m.

And the highlight of our tour, The Sea to Sky Gondola. A 10 minute ride up to the summit of 885m provides sweeping views of Howe Sound, the majestic Coastal forest & surrounding mountains.

Substitution suggestions for Sea to Sky Gondola - the Brittania Copper Mine Museum, the West Coast Railway Museum & a meal stop in Squamish.

Stopping at the Cypress Mountain viewpoint, we will first get a great view of the Metro Vancouver area, then on to Horseshoe Bay for a coffee or snack, and a visit Shannon Falls, the third highest waterfall in BC at 335m.

And the highlight of our tour, The Sea to Sky Gondola. A 10 minute ride up to the summit of 885m provides sweeping views of Howe Sound, the majestic Coastal forest & surrounding mountains. Once at the top, we have opportunities to take a short walk on the Sky Pilot Suspension Bridge, or continue a little further for some light hiking. This is also a great spot to enjoy a snack or lunch from their beautiful outdoor patio. Or consider dinner with view of the sunset.

Riding a Gondola not your thing? Here are some substitution suggestions for Sea to Sky Gondola - the Brittania Copper Mine Museum, the West Coast Rail Museum & a meal stop in Squamish.

A Recent Review of this tour

I was looking for a Vancouver tour following our cruise. I was so excited to find Tours by Locals and to have Lois do our tour. She was so helpful in making suggestions for our day trip. She hit all of the highlights that we wanted to see. It was the perfect way to end a wonderful vacation. She picked us up at the port and dropped us off at our hotel. She was great!
