About Squamish,

Named by The New York Times as one of the top 52 Places to Go, Squamish is recognized internationally as a mecca for windsurfing, rock climbing, hiking and mountain biking. 

Squamish is nestled between Vancouver and Whistler along the Sea to Sky corridor, one of North America’s most scenic coastal routes. Its spectacular 360-degree views range from snow-capped mountains to glacial lakes to old-growth forests to the turquoise waters of the Howe Sound fjord that look almost too good to be true.

Guarded by the Stawamus Chief and inhabited by North America’s highest concentration of wintering bald eagles, Squamish is an authentic West Coast mountain town with an award-winning craft brewery and distillery, farm to table dining experiences, sidewalk cafés, driftwood beaches, a rich First Nations culture and an expansive network of walking, hiking and mountain biking trails begging to share your adventure.
