Roadtripping the Pacific Northwest – Sea to Sky Highway, Canada

The biggest stroke of luck on our roadtrip? Coming across the Sea to Sky Highway in BC, Canada. It was quite a spontaneous idea to rent a car in Vancouver and get out of the city for a day. A little aimless at first, we soon found that special road that was to reveal all the magnificent gems of British Columbia.

Our first destination was Lynn Creek after realising that Grouse Mount was a rather touristy place (and not the ideal one to hike with our light sneakers). Lynn Creek, however, was full of magic: turqouise lagoons, romantic coves, venturesome cliffs and beautiful woods.

Driving in the direction of Whistler, Olympic city of 2010, we watched the mountains getting higher and higher.

And had an excellent meal at The Southside Diner directly by the highway: a lentil veggie burger with homemade fries for me, pulled pork poutine, a popular Canadian fast food meal, for him.

Invigorated by the yummy food, we took the way back to Vancouver still passing by some impressive mountains…
