A prominent jewel in BC’s many beautiful tourist destinations, the Sunshine Coast gets its name from the unseasonal amount of sun it receives. On average, it gets around 4-6 hours of sunshine in a single day. But that’s not even the best this slice of heaven on earth has to offer. Those perfect days are the ideal environment to enjoy majestic mountains, crystal clear lakes, lush forest and even a fjord or two. Trust us, you want to experience these yourself.
This 180 km stretch of amazing fertile land is only accessible via ferry from the mainland. The seclusion only adds to its charm, especially for the coastal towns that dot its majestic landscape. These communities, such as Gibson, Sechelt and Pender Harbour are popular year around vacation destinations for those trying to escape the hustle-and-bustle of city life.
If more physical activities is what you’re after, well the Sunshine Coast has its share. It has some of the most beautiful trails in all of British Columbia. One great example is the Sunshine Coast Trail, which is the longest free hut-to-hut hiking trail. You can also hit the water in a canoe or kayak to experience the lush coast lines in a new and once in a lifetime way.
One of the most popular ways visitors come to experience the authentic West Coast landscape is through the land and the sky. 7Adventure Tours partners with Sunshine Coast Air to offer you a breathtaking Hike and Fly tour https://www.7adventures.ca/hike-fly-thecoast where you can immerse yourself in our province’s supernatural beauty.
