Things to Do with the Kids in Squamish for Spring Break

Enchanting Adventures to Celebrate Spring Break in Squamish

It's finally spring (well almost)! The days are getting longer, and there are plenty of activities to maximize family-fun in Squamish this spring break. From snowshoe walks to riverside horseback riding adventures it's time to celebrate spring in Squamish. Here's a few ideas to get outside, break out of those 'isolation doldrums' and have a good time!


1. Book a Private E-Bike Tour

Discover Squamish on the saddle of an e-bike as you venture on a guided or self-guided tour. Blazing Saddles Adventure offers Eco-Tours that take you on a journey through Squamish to see the natural beauty and diverse ecosystem on a high-end electric mountain bike. All groups will be kept private upon request to allow guests to engage in social distancing. Suitable for ages 10+.

When: Daily

2. Book a family horseback tour in the Squamish rainforest

Indulge your kid's love of horses with a family-friendly guided trail ride. Your riverside tour will follow the shores of the Cheakamus River and include epic views of the Tantalus Range, the Cheakamus River and more. 

When: Available by reservation only. Please contact Cheekye Ranch directly for operational dates.

3. Play Outside at Alice Lake Provincial Park 

The ground is thawing, and Squamish is popping with colour! Springtime is perfect for a family walk around the Four Lakes Trail, the 6.5km route takes roughly two hours to complete and is surrounded by lush green moss and lakeside views. For those with strollers or young children the 1km loop around Alice Lake is equally loaded with colourful views and takes just 30 minutes. Be sure to leave time for a picnic on the beach at the end of the day or a visit to the beachside playground.  

When: Daily

4. Play in the Snow on a March Snowshoe Walk

Spring has sprung but that doesn't mean all the snowy fun is over. Plan a snowy adventure in the Squamish mountains where you can still find plenty of snow-covered trails waiting to be enjoyed. Snowshoeing is available at the Whistler Olympic Park and in Garibaldi Provincial Park. View a list of trails here

When: Daily

Local's tip: If you plan on going into the backcountry be sure to make a trip plan before you go. Check out BC Adventure Smart's website for trip planning resources. 

5. Experience BOOM! at the Britannia Mine Museum

BOOM! is a multi-sensory, immersive show brings the iconic cliff-hugging Mill at the Britannia Mine Museum back to life with sights, sounds and smells to transport you back in time to the world of copper mining in the early 1900s. Learn about the history of Britannia Beach and mining culture, all while being entertained by this sound and leading-edge special effects show. While inside you can also pan for gold, participate in an underground tour or wander the Mining Hall of Fame.
