#1 Museums & Morsels

These aren't just any museums! How about exploring an underground mine, panning for gold or watching a multisensory show filled with a BOOM! That's what you'll discover over at the Britannia Mine Museum. Or what about hopping on a mini-rail ride and discovering the world of trains over at the Railway Museum of BC. Both Squamish museums offer a fascinating glimpse into Squamish's history of innovation and industrialism. Finish things up with a visit to Sunflower Bakery or Fox & Oak for a delicious donut to cap off the day.

#2 Inside Scoop

If inside adventures are more your jam (or the elements just aren't cooperating), you can jump around and play at Airhouse Squamish or The Ninja Gym, always a hit! Got a fun creative idea in your head just waiting to be let loose? You’ll want to head over to Create Makerspace. Feel like chillin’ and playing a game or two? Arrow Wood Games does gaming events or you can pick up something new to enjoy. After all this inside action, grab a sweet treat with a scoop or two at Narwhal’s Ice Cream or Alice & Brohm.

#3 Two Wheelin'

Squamish is a mountain biking mecca, and the best part is there is a trail – and a bike- for everyone! From little groms and beginners to thrill riders of all abilities, you can cruise Squamish’s trails through coastal temperate rainforest and along stunning waterways. Sign up for rentals, lessons and tours on a top-of-the-line mountain or E-bike to really make the most of what’s here.

#4 Go Fish

Fishing is a fantastic way to reel in a good time and create some lasting memories. Squamish’s wonderful natural surroundings set the scene for an epic day, and while avid anglers tend to be hush-hush about their secret spots, you can choose from a selection of guided tours for fly-fishing, lake fishing or ocean trolling and jigging to learn from the pros. Didn’t snag a keeper? Head over to Free Bird Table & Oyster Bar to wrap out the day with a plate of their tasty fish n’ chips.

The Sea to Sky region offers a plethora of thrilling activities, perfect for satisfying any adrenaline junkie's cravings. Among these adventures, one stands out as a must-try at least once in your lifetime—canyoning. Gear up in a wetsuit and navigate through Squamish’s exhilarating canyons by rappelling, jumping, and climbing. Once you've worked up an appetite, head to Outbound Station to refuel with their famous smash burgers or warm up with a craft coffee.

#6 Splash in the Mountains

As the temperature rises, a cool splash in the mountains sounds invigorating, doesn’t it? Get ready to conquer Squamish's refreshing rapids on a thrilling whitewater rafting adventure! Whether you opt for the bold and brash Elaho-Squamish or the more easy-going Cheakamus, each river showcases rugged beauty that is rarely seen up close. After your adventure, head over to Fergie’s Café for a late lunch and share stories from the day.

The choice is yours, and the adventures are endless!
