Rated as #1 by Explore Magazine! Enjoy the awe-inspiring views of the ocean and the mountain peaks. This is an adventure you will talk about for years to come! It is one of the best activities to do in Squamish.
Your journey begins at the Summit Shelter at the top of the Sea to Sky Gondola, where you will be fitted with a climbing harness and helmet. Your guide leads you on a short hike down amongst beautiful old growth forest to a lovely viewpoint of Howe Sound.
