Description

Go rafting through the small, splashy rapids of British Columbia and ride a gondola into the mountains with this combination of journeys to amazing views. From an expedition along the Cheakamus River to the spectacular sight of Howe Sound from the air, you get an scenic adventure for all ages.

A shuttle carries you out of Vancouver and past the incredible landscape of the Sea to Sky Highway as you make your way to Squamish. Here, you get changed into your wetsuit and climb aboard an inflatable raft for a journey through the gentle rapids and old-growth forest. Learn about the history of the area's First Nations people and their connection to the river as you watch the shores for birds and wildlife among the evergreens and admire the waterfalls tumbling down from the Coast Mountains.

Once you've had a chance to cool off in the water, the raft carries you back to base, where you get some time to relax before heading to the Sea-to-Sky Gondola. A 10-minute ride in an enclosed carriage made mostly of windows gives you a majestic view of Howe Sound and the coastal forest that thrives on the mountainsides.

By the time you step out, you've reached 2,900 feet (885 m) above sea level and you're surrounded by a great range of outdoor attractions. You can hike out on a pair of interpretive loop trails, complete with cantilevered viewing platforms, and step out over thin air on the Sky Pilot Suspension Bridge before you return to the shuttle for the ride back to Vancouver.
