The Sea to Sky Highway is a wonderfully scenic drive along the coast between Vancouver and Whistler. While the non-stop drive only takes about 1.5 to 2 hours, leave plenty of time to make stops along the way for beautiful walks, a gondola ride and lots of photography opportunities.
We arrived in Vancouver having taken a 7-day cruise through the Inside Passage. With just one day in Vancouver we got an early start, as there was much to do!
We rented a car from Hertz, located in the car park under the Fairmont Pacific Rim Hotel – a few minutes walk from the cruise terminal.
A quick stop at the nearby Tourism Vancouver Visitor Centre gave us some invaluable tips on how to spend our day.
