About This Tour

Sea to Sky Highlights + Britannia Mine Museum + Sea to Sky Gondola

The views of Howe Sound along the rugged coastline following the Sea to Sky Highway is spectacular.  After a photo stop in quaint Horseshoe Bay, journey north towards the mountain town of Squamish, home to the Sea to Sky Gondola.  After an exhilarating 10-minute ride to the top of Habrich Ridge, your views of the surrounding mountains dramatically changes.  Spend the time taking amazing photos of the sweeping vistas or walking along the nature trails.

After a journey on top of a mountain, it is now to explore below.  Continue travelling back south along the scenic roadway with a stop at the Britannia Mine Museum.  The museum is a National Historic Site that offers guided mine tours, gold panning and an expanse of exhibits all exploring British Columbia’s mining history.

After a fun day exploring, return to downtown Vancouver in later afternoon.  10 person minimum is required to book a private tour.

Sea to Sky Highway

This legendary highway is packed with wonders including immense mountain ranges, dramatic waterfalls, and old-growth rainforests. Keep your camera handy – the Sea to Sky is also home to black bears, eagles, and diverse variety of wildlife.

Shannon Falls Park

Between the hustle and bustle of Whistler and Vancouver you will have a chance to unwind in the forests of the spectacular Shannon Falls Park. Stroll the scenic boardwalk through the towering rainforest and old growth treestumps to the misty base of Shannon Falls itself, a 335-metre (1,105-foot) cascade roaring along Shannon Creek to merge with the waters of Howe Sound. There are plenty of gentle trails and benches for hiking and picnics, all of which are sure to include the "wow" factor of natural life on the westcoast.
