The Capilano Suspension Bridge is one of Vancouver’s oldest tourist attractions. The original bridge was completed in 1889 and was a modest effort made of hemp rope and wood planks set perilously high over the Capilano River. The bridge was replaced with a more sturdy version in the early 20th century and in 1956 the massive bridge was completely rebuilt.
The iconic bridge is set amongst the lush, green forest of woodland Vancouver, Douglas firs towering high overhead. The experience is exhilarating not just for navigating the swinging bridge, but for taking in the beautiful views that make Vancouver an outdoors enthusiast’s paradise.
