Fjords

16 Photos To Inspire You To Visit The Howe Sound in Squamish

Did you know that the Howe Sound is the world’s most southerly fjord? Yep, you won’t find a single fjord on earth below the latitude of the Howe Sound – which makes it a very special place indeed.

Howe Sound Squamish

From beginning to end, the Howe Sound extends for 42km from West Vancouver northwards to Squamish, within the traditional territory of the Coast Salish First Nations. Dotted with islands, secret coves, and opportunities for marine wildlife spotting the Howe Sound is incredibly popular with hikers, paddle boarders, kite surfers, kayakers, and sightseeing tourists all year-round.

Here’s just a snippet of some of our favourite sights from around the Howe Sound.

Now this is the kinda view I like to see on a Monday afternoon 👌🏼 Today's adventure with @seatoskyair for @mchutch5's birthday was absolutely amazing – we flew (or should I say, Matt flew us!) over glaciers, rivers, snowy mountains, Howe Sound & some of the most beautiful landscapes. Just look at it 😍 Catch the action on IG stories! #exploreBC #SeaToSkyAir #golivexplore

Spring time is one of our favourite times to shoot the peaks from the air. We get such a mixed bag of weather you're almost always guaranteed to have an interesting sky as backdrop to your shot. This shot of #BlackTusk (a dormant volcano) was taken by @victoriafarrand few days ago on our Coast Mountain Photo Epic. The tour is designed specifically for pro and amateur photographers and gives you the freedom to fly at any time of day between sunrise and sunset, and you can plan your own custom route with our pilots to capture exactly what you want. —————————————————- The Coast Mountain Photo Epic is $284 p/p and an be booked on our website. It's perfect for amateur and pro photographers a like. It still astounds us that this is on the doorstep of #Vancouver and #squamish! —————————————————- #garibaldiprovincialpark #coastmountains #westcoastbestcoast #landscape_lovers #photographyeveryday #volcano #twilightscapes #exploresquamish #explorebc #mycanadaparksbc #1inamillionsquamish #mountainlife #vancouverisawesome #vancouverphotographer #cloudporncentral #whistler #whistlerunfiltered #vancityhype #britishcolumbia #canadaeh #canadaswonderland #beautifulbritishcolumbia
