This is one of those drives that really requires a poet to write the review. The views of the water, mountains and sky are awe inspiring even for those of us that live in the Colorado Rocky Mountains. The mountains diving deep into the vast expanse of water is breath taking. The clouds reflect onto the water. It was almost... More

This is one of my all time favorite drives in the world. I've traveled it both directions and going west (towards Vancouver) is definitely more scenic than going east (towards Lillooet). The "Duffy Lake Rd" portion is particularly stunning. The downside for me is the traffic between Pemberton and Vancouver.

I hadn't driven to Whistler for several years and wasn't aware that the Squamish Lil'wat Cultural Centre has added several historical kiosks to the route as well as had the First Nations names added to all the highway signs providing the distance to each town. It wasn't until I got home that I learned I could have downloaded information to... More

This was a beautiful drive along the coast up to Whistler. It could easily take a full day to drive up there if you stopped along the way. There are many places to stop and hike or just enjoy the view. Some stops can be quite crowded, so plan to leave early and battle some crowds. The road is very... More

We had the pleasure of taking this road to Squamish. We made a few stops along the way. The scenery was breathtaking.

We had been to Banff and Jasper and been bombarded with trails and lake views. But this one is still unforgetable!

Fun to visit if you're driving through, enjoying the sites, and heading to Whistler. Not-so-fun when your car gets stuck in snow and you have to wait around 4 hours in the cold for a tow truck. The route is beautiful, and the hikes are nice. In my opinion, its the most beautiful highway ever. There are several locations where... More

Even travelling in the rain, the Sea to Sky Highway was breathtaking- the views are absolutely incredible (and quite literally, as the speed limit is a bit fast for all bends in the road:) ) There are many stops along the way to stretch your legs and take in the views- we enjoyed all the waterfalls, Porteau Cove and the...

It was on and off rain during the drive up the highway, but the sights were just as good. Plenty of stops along the highway to take photos and enjoy some hikes. It is best to stop and take pictures when going north to south then when traveling up to Whistler due to the turnoffs on the road.
