Horseshoe Bay

A small, quaint and picturesque village on West Vancouver’s North Shore. It is also the location of the Horseshoe Bay Ferry Terminal, which provides service to Howe Sound, the Sunshine Coast, and Central Vancouver Island. This waterfront community is a charming place to visit, with galleries, picnic spots and patios.

Britannia (BC) Mining Museum

It was once the largest copper mine in the British Empire. Today, the Britannia Mine Museum opens up a little-seen world that fascinates all ages. Travel into an old copper mine, pan for gold and more.

Shannon Falls

Composed of a series of cliffs, rising 335 metres above Highways 99,  this is the third highest falls in the province. This park provides picnicking, hiking and access to the trail in Stawamus Chief Provincial Park. A must-see; thunderous, picturesque and easy to access.

Squamish

Located halfway between downtown Vancouver and Whistler’s high alpine, Squamish is known as the Outdoor Recreation Capital of Canada. This is where the ocean meets the mountains in Sea to Sky country. It lies at the crossroads between incomparable outdoor recreation and unforgettable West Coast culture. It’s where rugged landscapes and stunning vistas come together to create memorable adventures. Activities include hiking, rock climbing, kite surfing and more.

Alice Lake

Surrounded by towering mountains, dense forests and grassy areas, there are four fresh water lakes that dominate the landscape and make swimming and fishing very enjoyable pastimes.  This family-favourite provincial park with a sandy beach offers excellent views of the Squamish River and the Tantalus Range.

Tantalus Lookout

This viewpoint along the Sea to Sky Highway is one of the most impressing in the region. The lookout allows visitors to get out of their cars, stretch their legs and overlook these beautiful snow-capped mountains as well as the valley and river below. An awe-inspiring sight, this detour is not to be missed along this scenic roadway as few stops are allowed along this route.

Brandywine Falls

A spectacular 70 m waterfall and park that provides opportunities for hiking, picnics and mountain biking.
