Calling all road trip lovers. There's a highway in B.C. that's just begging to be driven. The Sea to Sky Highway is a must-add to anyone's bucket list and you have seriously never been to B.C. if you haven't travelled this route. Get ready for the best views and tons of things to do.
The drive from Vancouver to Whistler is one of the most iconic things ever.
Filled with the best views and way too many epic stops, this highway is your one-stop-shop for all things note-worthy.
Also known as Highway 99, the stretch is about 120 kilometres. It should take you about an hour and a half to drive it but we recommend taking your time.
You'll definitely want to stop along the way, so don’t rush it.
If you’re going to be treating this as a day trip then be sure to take snacks, a bathing suit, and some hiking boots.
As you drive along, you will be greeted with snow-topped mountain peaks, waterfalls, and beaches.
Literally every landscape imaginable is along this stretch of road and it almost fees like you’re in another country.
While the highway is drivable any time of the year, the best time to go is during the summer. That way you know that there won’t be any slippery snow on the road.
Plus, you’ll definitely want to stop at some of the beaches along the way.
These are just a fraction of the many lookout spots along the way but they're definitely fan-favourites.
If you're looking for things to do, then consider hitting up the downtown Squamish Farmer’s Market, Cat Lake, or Whistler bungee jumping.
There are also tons of restaurants and breweries along the way so feel free to venture into the title towns instead of passing through.
If you have the time, we recommend camping along the way.
There are literally dozens of campgrounds and all of them offer something different.
Some spots are fist come first serve while others are reservation only. There are also cute boutique hotels so you’re bound to find something even if it’s a last-minute trip.
Much like the Icefields Parkway in Alberta, this road trip is a B.C. must do.
