Squamish Dog Approved Activities

Sea to Sky Gondola

Trying to figure out where your next adventure will be? Take your dog to new heights with this once in a lifetime experience on the Sea to Sky Gondola. Dogs are only permitted to ride down on the gondola, so spend the day hiking to the top on the Sea to Summit Trail.

Not for the faint of heart, this advanced hike can be challenging with steep sections. Rope lines are there to assist humans, but those without thumbs may require some assistance. Well behaved dogs do not have to remain on leash while on the trail however, you must have a leash with you as all dogs must be on leash at all times when at the base, summit or when riding on the gondola itself.

Don't forget your poo bags! All humans are responsible for picking up and disposing of any dog poop in proper waste bins. Once you reach the top you are greeted by jaw dropping views of Howe Sound below. You can use the washroom and enjoy a drink at the Summit Lodge. Dogs must remain in the 'dog parking' area, so make sure to bring a friend and take turns keeping your pooch company.

After a bit of relaxation, you and your pup can begin your gondola ride to the base. With floor to ceiling windows you get maximum views of Howe Sound with the coastal forest beneath you. At over 900 metres, floating in the air surrounded by stunning scenery is a truly magical experience. 

As a popular tourist destination, some visitors may not be comfortable around dogs. All dog owners are asked to respect the space of other guests and take great care if you encounter any wildlife. Tickets for the gondola ride down can be purchased at the base or summit Guest Services. Give your pup the time of their life!
