Gourmet picnic lunch on a guided active tour in Vancouver.

"My husband and I took the Sea to Sky Hiking Adventure last week. We are from Ontario and don't get much of an opportunity to hike anywhere. Alex, our guide, was FABULOUS!!! He drove us to the Steams Chief and there we were able to hike at our own pace up the mountain. He stayed at the back of the group to ensure no one was left behind. When we reached the top we were treated to an incredible gourmet lunch complete with FRESH blueberries from Abbotsford, fondue and candied salmon!!" -Jenny Read On Tripadvisor
