We drove from Vancouver to Whistler and back last week. Howe Sound was a spectacular combination of bay with giant and smaller islands and on the other side of the sound, huge snow capped mountains. Halfway through the ride which takes about 2 hours, the road goes up into the higher mountains passing rivers,waterfalls, streams and forest. As we went... More

Do not miss this drive, it is awesome and well worth your time. Plan your route to take in this drive, you will not be disappointed. Plenty of views with places to stop. Some excellent attractions along the way also. If not driving take the Rocky Mountaineer Train to Whistler from Vancouver day return trip, or do both as we... More

Driving from Vancouver to Whistler must be one of the most beautiful drives in the world. At the top of best drives with the Iceberg Highway in Canadian Rockies and the Amalfi Coast, each very special in their own way. Blue seas, islands of all sizes, blue skies, waterfalls just off the highway, try Brandywine falls, huge mountains at the... More

I can't say enough about this beautiful drive from Vancouver to Whistler. It is a photographer's dream highway. This was an incredible drive with each turn more beautiful than the next.... A good portion of the drive actually hugs the side of the coastal mountains and overlooks Howe Sound... We had a map of the highway with suggested stops along... More

No matter what time of year you drive it, the Sea to Sky highway is always amazing. The views of the water all along Howe Sound... the giant cliff faces of Porteau Cove and the Stawamus Chief... All amazing!

A must drive for those that love scenery and nature. Drive from Vancouver to Whistler and stop half way for coffee at a coffee shop that roast their own coffee beans right on the premises.

We choes to fly to Vancouver, then drive up to Whistler on the Sea to Sky Highway. Absolutely beautiful! Roads were nice and the views were fantastic! We did all the tourists stops right off the highway to make the ride a little longer.

This tops the most scenic drive I have ever taken without the roller coaster death defying feeling of being on the edge of the mountain and the fear of accidentally dropping 500 feet or so to the water below. Too tired and sleepy and time zoned but had to stay awake not to miss the beautiful scenery. The sights are... More
