Your Local Guide to 57 Hours in Squamish, B.C.
It’s Friday and work just ended. How much outdoor adventuring can you pack into the next 57 hours? In Squamish, BC, the sky’s the limit — literally.
Squamish is a town built around outdoor adventure. It’s the kind of place where I can start my morning off with a sunrise hike, climb in the afternoon, stand up paddle in the evening, get up the next day, rinse and repeat. The other day while I was driving on Hwy 99, a paraglider landed next to my car and traffic didn’t even slow down. Visit Nexen Beach in the summer and you’re almost guaranteed to see dozens of kiteboarders out on the water. There’s probably as many mountain bikes as people and it’s no surprise to see a little three-year-old shredder rip past you at the bike park. Squamish is also incredibly gorgeous, where the Coast Mountains meet the Pacific Ocean and dense jungle rainforest butts up against large bodies of granite rock. It’s the kind of place where you want to ditch work early on a Friday and have fun until the sun goes down on Sunday, which is exactly the right approach. If you’re looking for outdoor adventure things to do in Squamish, here’s everything you can pack into a full weekend from 3pm on Friday to midnight on Sunday — or as we refer to it around here, 57 hours.
