Outdoor Recreation Capital of Canada

Easily accessible from both Whistler and Vancouver, little Squamish sits in the middle of one of Canada's scenic natural areas, affectionately called the "Sea to Sky Country." A vacation in Squamish provides the perfect opportunity to try a range of outdoor activities, so it's not surprising the town calls itself the "Outdoor Recreation Capital of Canada." Visitors get their dose of adrenaline by rock climbing, hiking, mountain biking, fishing, kayaking, golfing, whitewater rafting, or kite surfing in the area.
Your day by day itinerary now includes Stawamus Chief Park. Start off your visit on the 14th (Sun): explore the wealth of natural beauty at Shannon Falls Provincial Park, catch some excitement at Britannia Mine Museum, then get a taste of the local shopping with Furry Creek Golf and Country Club, and finally take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Stawamus Chief Park. Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the next day: view the masterpieces at Brackendale Art Gallery Theatre Teahouse, take a memorable drive along Stewart-Cassiar Highway, and then explore by horseback at Diamondhead Outfitters.

For photos, maps, other places to visit, and more tourist information, refer to the Squamish online road trip planner.
