Sea to Sky Highway: Whistler & the Sea to Sky Gondola Tour

1. Sea to Sky Highway: Whistler & the Sea to Sky Gondola Tour

Spectacular sights and rugged wilderness is found just out of reach of Downtown Vancouver. Board your mini-coach and tour the famous Sea to Sky Highway along Howe Sound, the southernmost glacial fjord in North America. Feel the spray from British Columbia’s third-highest waterfall, Shannon Falls, while standing on the viewing platform. Next it is on to the Sea to Sky Gondola. Board the gondola and ascend 850-metres (930-yards) to the top to soak up the panoramic perspectives of Howe Sound cradled by the Coast Mountains. It’s here that you can cross the Sky Pilot Suspension Bridge and walk along forest trails to the observation platforms. Your tour then continues North to Whistler Resort where you will join a short guided walking tour of Whistler Village (optional). After learning a bit about Whistler and getting a lay of the land, there is plenty of free time to explore at your own pace. Visit the shops, stop in an art gallery, or do as the locals do and find the perfect patio along the village stroll for a moment to relax at this stunning mountain resort. Whistler Resort is renowned as an outdoor mecca, so feel free to ask about additional activities you can take part in during your free time in the village. When your time in Whistler is coming to an end, get to enjoy the scenic tour back along the Sea to Sky Highway to where your tour began.

It was an all-round successful tour. Our guide Ian was great and not only entertained us with lots of information and funny stories, but also showed us a lot and made every effort to keep the day in good memory. I highly recommend the tour. Besides the Shannon Waterfall, the Sea to Sky Gondola and Whistler, we also saw bears and beautiful viewpoints. Thanks to Ian!

We thoroughly enjoyed our trip to Whistler and also the sea to sky gondola on April 8th 2022. Our guide, Ben, was fantastic & shared a wealth of information along the route. We felt he went out of his way to make sure we got the most out of our trip. Our journey home was relaxed listening to Ben's playlist of Canadian singers. Very enjoyable trip.

Ian was a very knowledgeable and entertaining guide. He was very flexible with our family interests and needs. I would highly recommend this tour! Ian is very funny and did an amazing job weaving in stories from the First Nations people to provide a fulsome picture of the region. It’s a great way to learn about the area while enjoying nature.
