Vacay.ca Recommends Wild Day Trips from Vancouver
Vacay.ca Outdoors Columnist Tricia Edgar recently listed six of the best day trips from Canada’s west-coast metropolis. Among them was a camping trek close to Squamish.
Edgar writes: “If you decide that a short-term camping trip is just your thing, there are a number of camp sites that are easily accessible from Vancouver. While they’re not quite within commuting distance, they’re great for an overnight or two. Alice Lake campground just outside of Squamish offers accessible, family-friendly camping. Visit scenic Newcastle Island, tucked away close to the Nanaimo Ferry, or take the Sea to Sky Highway (Highway 99) up to Porteau Cove, a campsite with great diving opportunities.
“In Vancouver, a trip to the wilderness is only an hour or two away. If you’re aching to explore beyond the boundaries of Canada’s largest west coast city, there are many ways to explore those tempting mountains and beautiful lakes, no matter the season.”
