Vancouver’s Sea to Sky Region and Highway

Sea to Sky Region

Between Vancouver’s North Shore and the ski resort of Whistler lies the Sea to Sky Highway which is one of the most beautiful drives in the region.

On a sunny day the views are comparable to some of the best in the world.

The Sea to Sky Region

The Sea to Sky Highway connects Vancouver with Whistler and along the way some amazing places to visit including the following:

Strait of Georgia Water and Islands

The main community in the Sea to Sky region is Squamish – the “Outdoor Recreation Capital of Canada”.

If you like golf, two of the Lower Mainland’s best golf courses include Furry Creek Golf and Country Club (at 150 Country Club Road in Furry Creek up the Sea-to-Sky Highway) and the Fairmont Chateau Whistler Golf Resort (at 4612 Blackcomb Way in Whistler).

Tips and Advice

Below are some suggestions to help you make the most out of your trip to the Sea to Sky region.

TIP #1: Take the drive on a sunny day if you can. On a day with bright blue skies, the scenery is absolutely stunning. On a cloudy day though, when the mountains and far off islands are hidden, it’s just a big windy highway.

TIP #2: Drive carefully – it’s a curvy highway and can be slippery when wet or below freezing. If heading to Whistler in the winter, make sure you have good winter tires.
