Drove the highway from Vancouver to Whistler and was astounded with the scenery. Stops at the falls at Shannon and Brandywine a must to see especially when the water in full force. Both of these fall are a short easily accessible walk from the parking lots.

We drove the Sea to Sky from Downtown Vancouver to Whistler and what a beautiful journey it is. The road and the views are absolutely stunning, the surface of the road is smooth and flawless, absolutely perfect for a day out. The majority of the route from Vancouver to Whistler was dual carriageway however there are points it becomes single... More

What an amazing route to drive or better still, be driven along! The scenery is breathtaking and there are numerous locations you can stop and just take it all in. The fjord was incredible and I didn't know there were any of these in North America. Apparently there is a sea lion sanctuary out in one of the small islands!... More

This is quite an easy, but extremely beautiful drive from Vancouver to Whistler. We drove in October and it was perfect, blue skies, water, mountains. Some reviews comment on how dangerous this road is...it's not dangerous from a "scary road" perspective, but I could see people who are reckless making this dangerous, with some sharp curves - just pay attention...

I like to call myself a road trip aficionado, having driving cross country twice, up and down each of the coasts, and across a good chunk of Alaska. This road is like no other. The mountains meeting turquoise colored water will take your breath away! There are plenty of places to camp along the way. Porteau Cove is nice spot... More

Live in Vancouver area, and always manage to take a trip along this route yearly. The bonus of course, is that it leads to the Whistler-Blackcomb recreation area, which is world class. The only downside is the fast traffic and stupid drivers. But if you take your time and enjoy the scenery, you will be amazed. The best sections are... More

We hired an SUV from Avis in Vancouver instead of catching the shuttle. Avis upgraded us to a 7 seat SUV so we had plenty of room, the drive out from Vancouver (99) to Whistler is really well signed / advertised. The sea to sky highway gives you sight seeing options on the way and the quality/condition of the highway... More

The Sea to Sky Highway is the most scenic drive in Vancouver, probably even in Canada. If you don't have a car, highly recommend to rent a car to go that way - it's the way to Whisler anyways, so if you plan to go to Whisler, you are on it. If not, or just have 2 to 3 hours... More

I have been travelling this route for over 30 years and the Sea to Sky highway is better now than it has ever been. Yes, the scenery is stunning and it is worth taking your time to explore the lookout points of interest and the new Sea to Sky Gondola (which, on a nice day, shows you the entire Howe... 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
