The Sea to Sky Corridor is arguably one of the most scenic coastal drives you can embark on in BC. With the majestic Howe Sound as the ultimate backdrop—you can’t beat these views.

Travel along the serene highway that links Vancouver to Squamish, Whistler and Pemberton for a memorable road trip from start to finish.

Check some of these cascading waterfalls off your bucket list that are just a quick detour away from the Sea to Sky region.

Waterfalls Along Sea To Sky

The first waterfall stop you have to make is at the gorgeous Shannon Falls. It’s BC’s third tallest waterfall, dropping from a whopping 1,105-feet. The Squamish-area falls are a great excuse to take a break from driving and stretch your legs for a bit while you admire Mother Nature.

With the rushing waters and lush greenery all around, it’s the perfect place to stop and take a break, plus the photo opportunities are endless.

A must-see on your road trip. Located in the Callaghan Valley, it’s a great spot to marvel at the falls and maybe even spot a bear or two. This area is also home to the Whistler Olympic Park which is a great spot for locals and tourists alike.

Rainbow Falls

These falls in Whistler will not disappoint. Because they’re tucked away and lesser known than some of the larger falls, they’re idyllic to escape the crowds of people and just soak up the beauty of nature. They can be found in 21 Mile Creek at the beginning of the hike to Rainbow Lake.

Nairn Falls

Check out these falls about 20-minutes north of Whistler. The double waterfall is twice as nice and is connected by a small canyon where the Green River flows. It’s a relatively easy hike to reach these two falls and both stand at about 60-meters tall.

Crooked Falls

Visit this magnificent waterfall that tumbles over the rocks below. Crooked Falls has amazing views in the Upper Squamish Valley region, just off Sigurd Trail. Take in the Squamish River as you hike up to the falls for breathtaking scenery that will have you coming back again and again.
