Adventure meets education in this fun-filled tour that combines four of the Sea to Sky's most popular attractions. This journey starts with picturesque photo opportunities along the gorgeous Sea-to-Sky Highway and Howe Sound. Conveniently located along the way, you will drive through the Village of Horseshoe Bay.
Next onto Britannia Mine to ride by rail car into a time gone by. Visit a deserted copper mine and try your luck panning for gold to add lots of extra fun for kids of all ages.
The majestic Shannon Falls provides a chance to capture beautiful photos year round with a short forest walk along the river to the base of the roaring falls.
A short drive away is the Sea to Sky Gondola. A 5 minute Gondola ride that will take visitors high to the top of the Stawamus Chief. You will have 2 hours to explore the forest, walk over 300ft suspension bridge and capture the stunning views of Howe Sound and the mountains beyond. Take this opportunity for a picnic lunch on top of the world's 3rd largest monolith (A $20 food voucher will be included and may be used at either one of the two restaurants on site).
Our final stop will be the West Coast Railway Heritage Park Museum. This 12 acre site, replicating a turn-of-the-century railway town, includes historic buildings, train station, roundhouse, a significant collection of railway artifacts and over 90 vintage trains and locomotives to explore. Ride the mini train through yesteryear to give you the full experience of adventure and education.
If time permits, Cypress Mountain Lookout will be included. You will see spectacular views of beautiful Vancouver, the Lions Gate Bridge and Stanley Park. On clear days, the views stretch all the way to Vancouver Island and Mount Baker in Washington, USA.
