BeWild! on our Stawamus Chief tour from Vancouver

This unique and gorgeous guided hike up Stawamus Chief will have you ascending one of North America’s largest granite monoliths. If that isn’t enough, you will also hike alongside the famous Shannon Falls, with views along the way of this iconic waterfall. You will climb to the rocky peak, which offers panoramic views for miles around. Look out over Howe Sound, Squamish, and the surrounding mountains that make BC a hiker’s paradise.

Our Stawamus Chief hiking tour offers walkers three different peaks to ascend. It is possible to access them all in one day, though you may choose to take your time on the option most to your liking. Read below to learn more about what our incredible Stawamus Chief Guided Hike entails.
