Enjoy Canada's scenic coastal drive in the worlds largest temperate rainforest


Vancouver is known for its natural beauty and this tour puts you in the heart of the coastal mountain rainforest. You will get picked up at a pre-determined location in Vancouver before taking in the ocean views and mountain vistas along the famous Sea-to-Sky Highway, considered one of the most beautiful drives in Canada.

The first stop is at the Britania Mine Museum, the largest copper mine in the British Empire that stopped operating in the 1970's and was recently refurbished into mine museum.
Then we will continue down the highway to Shanon Falls, the 3rd highest waterfall in British Columbia. Our final stop will be the Sea-to-Sky Gondola that takes you 885m above sea level. The top offers spectacular views of Howe Sound, Squamish, The Chief and surrounding mountains. There is a restaurant for lunch and seasonal activities to participate in if you so choose.

Afterwards, we will come down the gondola for the return drive back to Vancouver.

A Recent Review of this tour

EXCELLENT, HIGHLY COMMENDED (2nd Tour - further comment) :- Our party of 6 Senior Citizens from Scotland booked two day tours with Tristan via Tours by Locals. As mention in our first review Tristan is friendly, helpful & very knowledgeable about Vancouver & surrounding area. His Transit mini bus is modern, clean with plenty of room. He had a good PA system to keep us informed of points of interest during the drive. Good standard of driving & we have no hesitation in recommending him.
