“Visually stunning drive”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2014

This is one of the most gorgeous drives I've taken. It was amazing to see both mountains and shoreline simultaneously. Also, it seemed like each turn had a different, scenic view. There are also provincial parks along the highway that you can stop (and hike) at. Definitely a must-do if you are in the Vancouver area!

“Impressive vistas”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2014

The drive along the Sea-to-Sky highway offers some unique and impressive vistas. The road can be challenging at times; so, two or more drivers are highly recommended. One drives, the other(s) look. There are more opportunities to make stops on the way South from Squamish; left turns on the way North to get closer to the water are illegal, and dangerous, at many of the more scenic stops. Park, picnic and rest area facilities are available at Porteau Cove and Shannon Falls, but you have to get all the way to Squamish for reliable food options during the year.

“Amazing, Fantastic Drive”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2014

I love driving down winding roads that are not boring and this road has lots of that. The view, is amazing, such a scenic drive, lots of areas to stop and hike and just enjoy from waterfalls, to forests to shoreline. Worth the detour from driving straight on Highway 1 to Vancouver

“Very nice scenic drive”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2014

I love going on the Sea to Sky HIghway when ever I get the chance. Since they've improved it for the 2010 Winter Olympics, the highway feels better. You encounter a lot of beautiful scenery. Only thing that I dislike are the crazy drivers who go way over the speed limit. 10 to 15 km/h above the speed llimit is okay but there are some that go way pass that and it can be a bit dangerous when it's raining or snowing. Otherwise, it's a beautiful highway to go on.

“Great improvement on this highway”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2014

This was the first time we have travelled this highway since it was upgraded for the 2010 Olympics. It has been improved greatly and the views and scenery are wonderful. The highway makes a visit to Whistler or beyond a good experience.
