Discover easy hikes up and down the stunning Sea-to-Sky Corridor.
Whistler is famous as one of the most beautiful—and most popular—mountain town destinations in the world. With approximately 3 million visitors per year, Whistler serves as a tourism hub for the entire region. Taken collectively, this region is known as the "Sea-to-Sky Corridor," stretching from Squamish on the sea to the Lillooet Mountains in the sky.
The beauty of the Sea-to-Sky Corridor cannot be overstated! Squamish is shockingly beautiful, with a pristine saltwater bay to the west and bald granite domes rising to the southeast. To the northeast, the mountains soar high into the sky.
As soon as you begin driving north out of Squamish, you'll enjoy stupendous views of glacier-covered mountainsides with jagged rock spires piercing the sky. These mountain views continue all the way to the terminus of the corridor, with Mount Currie towering impressively above Pemberton. Along the entire stretch in between, you'll find thundering waterfalls, rushing rivers, deep forests, pristine lakes, and so much more.
One of the best ways to experience this incredible natural beauty for yourself is by going on a hike. Thankfully, there's a whole lifetime of hiking adventures to be had here in the Sea to Sky!
