Tour Overview: 

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. Our 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 meca, 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 a close you then get to enjoy the scenic tour back along the Sea to Sky Highway to where your tour began.
