Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Earn some bragging rights by climbing the Via Ferrata at the Sea to Sky Gondola on this guided tour high above Squamish. Along with a helmet, you’ll be provided with a harness and lanyards, made up of two leashes that are clipped onto the cable for safety. With the entire route secured in this manner, Via Ferrata is a family-friendly activity (ages 8 and up.)

At the harnessing deck, get fitted with climbing equipment. Hike briefly down the Sea to Summit Trail through an old-growth forest, and emerge to a rewarding view of Howe Sound. At the ‘flight deck,’ your guide clips you into the safety cable.

See Howe Sound below and the snowcapped peaks of Sky Pilot above. With the help of the steel rungs and the fixed cable system, make your way across bridges, cross a catwalk, and head up glacier-worn granite.

Your Via Ferrata adventure ends at the Sea to Sky Summit Lodge, where you can relax on the sun deck.
