During our last trip to British Columbia in Sept. 2016, we found ourselves staying at Whistler and wanting to drive up to Sun Peaks. So, should we take the Duffy Lake Route to the North or loop around Vancouver. We took the Duffy and are very happy we did. It may not be a fast drive but why look for... More

Duffy Lake, just East of Pemberton BC ( 1.5hr from Whistler) Great route for motorcycles and Corvettes. Road surface is very good. Scenery is breathtaking and very peaceful. This is a destination for photographers. The big mountains are west, so shooting them requires being here in the morning to have the East lsith at your back. Lots of places to... More

Best when not so much traffic but hard to predict. Sometimes the unexpected happens... Like. Rockslide! But if you're lucky you can dip your toes in the creek while you wait. We have such amazing roads in BC. Best travelled with friends 😉

I prefer to take this road to the Okanagan because it is very scenic. There are some steep hills and many curves therefore you need to gear down otherwise your brakes will burn out. I have seen many campers at the end of the steep hill with their brakes shut and burning. Be careful and GEAR DOWN

This is a great drive between Whistler to Highway 97 with a full splendour of natural beauty from mountains, woods, lakes & rivers, grasslands, rock formations, changing landscapes, farms and towns. If your lucky some wildlife. Canada has some excellent scenic drives and this is definitely one of them. Get in a car and experience the beauty.

It's scenic, but it's steep, curvy, hairpin turns and terribly slow way to go from Kamloops to Whistler. We had a huge van and our heart was in our mouths all the time.

This drive is very pretty with great views but take your time. Give yourself at least 2 hours. And go easy on the brakes and easy on the gas. Sharp turns and steep hills so brakes can overheat. Gear down when possible. Pull over and let those who want to go fast pass you. Do not speed if you're not... More

we drove out here thinking this was a lake road or scenic loop and it was really nothing but driving by a lake. not sure why it is listed and wish someone had said so.

Take this road before the suburbs from Whistler/Pemberton encroach further - better than the alps or anything else you're going to see within 3 hours of a world city. Amazing drive - go all the way to Lilloet and overnight there at the 0 mile motel, ask them for a view of the river and the CP rail will wake... More
