The Capilano Suspension Bridge is an absolute must if you visit Vancouver, BC, Canada. If you are looking for an adventure for all age groups without going too far away from the city, then this is for you.
We stayed in downtown Vancouver as Cap Bridge Park is only a 15-minute drive from downtown. By the way, if you are looking for places to stay, Vancouver has more than 25,000 guest rooms, with about 13,000 alone downtown. Click here to find places to stay.
Capilano Bridge is set within British Columbia’s cedar-scented rainforest. Originally built in 1889, the 450 foot long Capilano Suspension Bridge soars 230 feet above the Capilano River. Honestly, the bridge can be crossed with ease and swiftness without worry of slipping or falling. Is it daring? I would say, YES!!
Getting there from Downtown Vancouver is pretty easy. You can take your own personal vehicle or there is also a round trip daily free shuttle service from downtown to and from Capilano. We decided to drive our own car. There were plenty of parking spaces available as we went late in the evening. I would highly recommend going early morning or late evening to avoid crowds.
The bridge is the best experience ever, but so are the other attractions like Cliff Walk and TreeTop Adventures. The Cliff Walk provides incredible views from a narrow, stable boardwalk bolted into the side of the ravine cliff face. TreeTop Adventures is a series of elevated boardwalks high among the trees on the other side of the ravine. Don’t forget to meet park’s wild resident “Henry”, the great blue Heron.
And, if you get hungry after all the adventure, there is a restaurant, café and, and not to forget the awesome souvenir shop.
Capilano Bridge is definitely a breathtaking exploration of the ancient ecosystem via a marvel of modern engineering.
