Sea to Sky Gondola

Sea to Sky Panorama

Escape the hustle and bustle of the city for a leisurely drive to Vancouver's North Shore and onwards to Highway 99 - the Sea to Sky Highway. Discover scenic ocean vistas, dramatic waterfalls and soaring mountains as the highway hugs the Howe Sound coastline. The gondola will then whisk you to the summit where you can experience breathtaking views of the coastal mountains and ocean below.

Proposed Itinerary          

Meet up at prearranged location.  Note:- suggested departure time is 09:00 because this allows the best opportunity of crossing the North Shore bridges in "off-peak" times when traffic is expected to be less busy.
Drive through the Stanley Park Causeway and cross the spectacular Lions Gate Briidge into West Vancouver.
Head up to the Trans-Canada-Highway and drive west through the village of Horseshoe Bay, leading to Highway 99 (Sea to Sky Highway).  The gorgeous and scenic 60 km (40 mile) drive takes us to Squamish where we board the Sea to Sky Gondola, opened in 2014.
Experience a journey like no other as the 10 min gondola ride whisks you to the 885 m (2900 ft) summit.  The ride affords grand sweeping views of Howe Sound's network of fjords as well as the splendid coastal forest and surrounding mountains.
On reaching the summit, spend up to 90 minutes on a wide array of outdoor experiences, which include two  interpretive loop walking trails, cantilevered viewing platforms with jaw-dropping views and the remarkably impressive Sky Pilot Suspension Bridge.
 On returning to the base station, there is an option to visit the town of Squamish and have lunch before returning to Vancouver.

Depending on time availability, there is an option to stop at Shannon Falls. When open, the Welcome Centre at Shannon Falls can be a great spot to pick up post cards, souvenirs, snacks, hot and cold beverages, ice cream t-shirts etc.  Shannon Falls  Provincial Park contains the third highest waterfall in British Columbia.  See the spectacular falls cascade over a series of 335 m high cliffs
