Our Sea to Sky MTB experience is a spectacle of mountain biking directed by our experienced guides! They can’t wait to pass on their enthusiasm about, arguably, the best MTB area in the world!

Sea to Sky Corridor…

The Sea-to-Sky Corridor is a region in British Columbia, Canada. It spreads from Horseshoe Bay through Squamish and Whistler, all the way up to the Pemberton Valley. Even though it is often overshadowed by the fame of the Whistler Bike Park, Sea to Sky area is home to some of the world’s best natural mountain bike trails! Squamish & Pemberton are true paradise cities for outdoor lovers. Squamish is a logging industry town turning adventure capital, where the glacier meets the ocean. And Pemberton is a town with rustic wild-west-like appearance and First Nations heritage, nestled in between the mountains, rivers, and lakes.

…a paradise for outdoor lovers!

To conclude, there is so much more to this area than just a bike park! However, the local municipalities are making sure that bikers are well catered all the time. They are constantly expanding the network of trails while maintaining them in a top-notch condition. Our guides will show you all of the hidden and remote jewels that are around this area. They will help you understand the reason why so many adventure-loving people think about this area as their home!

If you are traveling from far away we recommend arriving at least a day early to help you adjust to the time zone and to avoid any luggage or flight delay complications.

After you get settled, we will have a short briefing followed by a dinner in town and a relaxed time spent together to get to know each other.

Alternatively, you can organize your own arrival to Whistler and join us whenever it suits you best.

If you’ve been here before you won’t need any introductions. We are counting on you to lose yourself in the world’s biggest and best bike park and we won’t be in your way.

Day 4 – Pemberton trail exploration

Pemberton is a town with a unique character, very different to the one of Whistler, even though it is only 30 minutes’ drive away.  Endless trails of all difficulties in this area make it a dream for any “enduro” enthusiast. Choice of trails is all up to you. As there is plenty of options, our experienced local guide will help you accommodate your skill level, needs, and wishes.

Day 5 – Mount Seymour

This is the day you’ll learn first hand why Vancouver constantly tops the most livable cities of the world lists. We’ll hit Vancouver’s own little piece of MTB heaven. In fact, this area and its riders played a key role in early modern mountain bike development. Mt. Seymour makes our guides’ favorite list and they can’t wait to show you a part of the area that most other guided tours miss.

Day 6 – Squamish trail

Squamish, a town where glacier-covered mountains rise just above the ocean, is a breath-taking destination that is quickly becoming an outdoor sports capital of Canada. Biking stunning trails of Squamish will offer views of Mount Garibaldi volcano, Stawamus Chief, the second largest granite monolith in the world that attracts world’s best climbers, and the Howe Sound at the mouth of Squamish River, a kite surfing mecca for Vancouverites.

Day 7 – Top of The World trail

Top of The World trail not only offers the highest vertical drop in Whistler but also a spectacular journey that starts with the bare and open character of the beautiful Whistler alpine. A trail that has it all is a perfect round-up of our Sea to Sky experience.
