Since our launch of our Squamish Via Ferrata Tour last month, more and more people are hearing about this easy and accessible climbing experience just steps from the top of the Sea to Sky Gondola. Recent rain has cleared the sky of smoke from wildfires in the region, allowing pristine views of Howe Sound and the Tantalus Mountain Range once again. Our guides have been leading groups of all ages with children as young as eight years old to enjoy this unique and exhilarating experience.
Here is the Squamish Via Ferrata Tour Video that shows what you can expect from the Squamish Via Ferrata Tour!
Beginning with a guided hike through old growth forest down from the Sea to Sky Gondola’s Summit Lodge, the Via Ferrata experience starts with an easy traverse while guests get used to the harness and lanyard system. Before long, the ascent climbs glacier-polished granite rock with a mix of vertical climbing up metal rungs, traverses across the rock faces and crossing catwalks and a suspension bridge. Over your shoulder you’ll have the inspiring views of the alpine peaks of Sky Pilot and Copilot as well as the vast expanse of Howe Sound and the Tantalus Mountains across the valley. Fun for the whole family and climbers of all abilities!
The Squamish Via Ferrata tour is approximately 1.5 hours long, departing daily at 9.45am, 11:30am, 1:15pm and 3:00pm, with later departures available on weekends.
