The Sea to Sky Highway between Vancouver and Squamish is
one of the most scenic coastal highways in the world. In April 2006
the Guardian newspaper in London chose it for their list of
the "Worlds five best road trips" - the highway is
carved out of the cliffs and runs along the shoreline of the pacific
ocean Howe Sound fjord. Towering rock faces that plunge to the sea.
Rivers cascading in bubbly plumes off a sheer cliff. And intense
colours that mesmerize even the most jaded traveller. Glittering
blue Howe Sound. Brilliant white glacier ice. Jagged black peaks
against an azure sky.
Dream Adventures and
places of wonder await you in this dramatic land.
