Make this drive!!! Most scenic example of what BC has to offer.

So, try for clear day..(yeah, sure) and make this drive. Runs about an hour or two, not sure, as I always stop and look at places along the way. Hopefully, have a nice road car... read more

So, try for clear day..(yeah, sure) and make this drive. Runs about an hour or two, not sure, as I always stop and look at places along the way. Hopefully, have a nice road car, but anything will do. Honestly, this road is so beautiful, I run it a few times a year. At least Vancouver to Squamish... Consider lunch... More

I thought Colorado was beautiful, route 99 toward Whister had nature I never saw before. Mountains ,lakes,parks and waterfalls everywhere. The trees were beautiful and the timing for the fall colors was perfect. Route 99 was a well maintained paved road with plenty of signage . Stop by all the small towns along the route. This is a must do... More

We traveled from Vancouver to Whistler for a few days and back again along this highway and never have I seen such views and scenery in 1 stretch. The photo shoots are endless and we spent most of the journey clicking away. You have it all ocean and mountains, spectacular. Excellent upgraded road so very comfortable journey.

Unfortunately on the day we had to drive this highway from Vancouver to Whistler and back it was cloudy, rainy and BAD visibility. As I really love driving it still was a VERY enjoyable drive, on our return trip the weather had slightly cleared and we could see some of the SPECTACULAR scenery we had missed on the way to...

there are plenty of new passing lanes and views along the Sea to Sky Highway since it was upgraded for the 2010 Olympics. Stop and see Shannon Falls on your way to Whistler and go on a little hike to enjoy the waterfall. Squamish has lots to offer along the way and for those who like kite surfing this is... More

I drive this highway from Vancouver to Britannia Beach for work and love it. The views all along the highway are so beautiful. From the ocean to the mountains. On rainy days the visibility can be low and it gets slippery so be careful. It is a windy road as well but still an easy drive.

We drove from Vancover to Lillooet and the first part of our journey was the Sea to Sky Highway. The road gradually climbs along a very long inlet up to Squamish, going through former native land. The views are great, sea, mountains and of couse the dense BC forests. The road is a 2 lane highway so drive with care... More

You can't go wrong with this road. Stop at Horseshoe Bay for a quick lunch either before or after then head north, either to Squamish or continue to Whistler stopping at Shannon Falls. Easily compared to the fjords of Norway as the mountains drop into the sea. Many legends told about the First Nations who settled there long ago and... More

This is probably an unfair review in that I'm sure the scenery is wonderful, but we didn't see any of it all the way from Squamish to Lilloet. We were stuck in cloud and mist. Sometimes we could see 100 meters, sometimes not far past the front of the car. We also greatly unserestimated the time needed for this route... More
