What To Expect
Glide above the picturesque mountain town of Squamish as you enjoy the incredible views of Howe Sound, Squamish Chief Mountain and Shannon Falls with this admission to the Sea to Sky Gondola ride. It's the perfect opportunity to experience one-of-a-kind views and a variety of fun outdoor activities during your Squamish visit. Start your ride at the gondola basecamp, picking a departure any time between 10am and 6pm (or from 10am and 8pm on Fridays and Saturdays during the summer months). Before you board, take advantage of the on-site café, children's play area and shopping. Then climb aboard your comfortable 8-person gondola for the ride to the top. As you glide up 2,900 feet (880m) into the air in your Austrian-manufactured gondola, take time to absorb the incredible pine tree-covered mountain scenery down below. You'll likely be able to spot notable Squamish-area attractions such as Shannon Falls, Howe Sound fjord, and the rock climbing area at Squamish Chief Mountain. Once you arrive at the top, take time to explore the area at your leisure. Take a walk on one of the nearby hiking trails, or check out the 330-foot (100m) long Sky Pilot suspension bridge and the 5000 square-foot (465 sq m) viewing platform, both of which offer stellar views. If you're feeling hungry, head to the Summit Lodge Restaurant and the nearby tea house, where you can purchase food at your own expense. When you're ready, make a return ride back to the bottom to finish your trip.

This tour was SO much fun. We took our 4 and 1/2 year old with us, and since we left all he has done is ask when can we go again? The directions and location were very easy to follow and find, it was super easy to show your voucher and just hop on board. The views were spectacular, the staff friendly and informative, and the bridge, lookout, and trails at the top were so worth it. We would absolutely do this again in a heartbeat the next time we are in the area! I highly recommend it!
This tour is wonderful, and have lots of fun doing suspension bridge, hiking and photo taking. The views are spectacular. I strongly recommend it to everyone who wants to explore the nature beauty of Vancouver north shore.
A great day and great experience. All aspects of this experience were outstanding. I would recommend the complimentary tour to begin your experience as the tour guide had a wealth of knowledge. I wish I had more time to explore!!
Stunning views and fast ascent. Lovely trails at the top and a suspension bridge too! If possible I would highly recommend going during the week as they have high visitor numbers during the weekends. Highly recommend.
Loved this! We were amazed at how high the gondola went and went and went. Great view from the top. There was also a great suspension bridge which was free and a restaurant. It was great. We would definitely do this again!
