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.

I was just there on Saturday. We tried out the Cliff Walk and it was wonderful. If you are a local resident, your one day pass changes to a one year pass. The Treetop Adventures was fun even for adults. There were lots of easy trails to walk around and small set up of relevant information about the area, or the Salmon spawning and how the Canyon is created.
They also offer a free shuttle from downtown Vancouver at three locations.
For a local, now with my pass, I will be heading back to do more exploring. Also, around Christmas time, they light up the bridge and its a sight to see.
That’s great info, thank you! I also did the Cliff Walk when I was there, that will be in a forthcoming post. :)
