How to Spend 1 Day in Squamish

How to Spend 1 Day in Squamish

Squamish, a former logging town on the way to Whistler, has emerged as a mountain destination in its own right. Here’s how to get a taste of the action if you only have one day to spend in Squamish.

Morning: White-Water Rafting

While you can participate in just about any outdoor adventure in Squamish, white-water rafting ranks among the best. Spend the morning conquering the Class I-II rapids of the Cheakamus River or the more thrilling Class III-IV rapids of the Elaho River. As well as tackling the rapids, you’ll increase your chances of spotting bears, beavers, and deer. If you’d prefer to stay dry, admire British Columbia from the air on a backcountry flightseeing tour that takes you high above the glaciers, lakes, and peaks of Canada’s wilderness.

Afternoon: Adventure On Land

Now you’ve seen Squamish from the water, enjoy the region on dry land. Choose to explore the coastal rainforests on a manual or electric bike tour; enjoy views of Howe Sound while climbing the Sea to Sky Corridor’s Via Ferrata; or tackle the rope courses at the family-friendly Rope Runner Aerial Park. Squamish is also a well-known rock climbing destination with routes suitable for climbers of all ages and abilities; an afternoon of guided rock climbing includes all necessary equipment.

Night: Cleveland Avenue

Take the evening to explore the town itself, staring with a stroll down Cleveland Avenue— downtown Squamish’s main street. Grab a bite at a local restaurant; have a locally-brewed beer or cider; or, if you’re visiting during the summer months, listen to some live music. If you haven’t had enough of the outdoors, consider a twilight float trip along the Lower Squamish River instead. Mild rapids make for a leisurely float and are perfect for spotting wildlife as dusk settles on the Coastal Mountains.
