“Just amazing driving and travelling experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2014

Driving from Richmond to Whistler was not as difficult as expected because the highway roads were clean and wide. We started at 7am and reached Whislter at around 2 pm. We stopped at Horseshoe Bay, Shannon Falls, Alice Lake and finally beautiful Brandywine Falls. The stunning and breathtaking scenic views were unforgettable and enjoyable. An unexpected travel before reaching the "beautiful" early summer Whistler.

“Gorgeous”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2014

We've made this drive on daylight and at sunset. Both times it was breathtaking, but driving this highway as the sun is going down is unlike anything else I've seen from the car before, and that includes two cross country trips. An absolute must, and make it at sunset if you can!

“Just great!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2014

Not an easy drive , but worth it. The views are awesome and if you drive down to Lilliooet it's even better. We enjoyed the descend better, because there was hardly any traffic. Well worth the slow drive.

“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.
