Vancouver: Capilano Suspension Bridge Park Self-Guided Tour

1. Vancouver: Capilano Suspension Bridge Park Self-Guided Tour

Only 15 minutes from downtown Vancouver, take a walk on Vancouver's wild side as you stand 230 feet (70m) above the waters of the Capilano River on a breath-taking 450-foot-long (137-metres) suspension bridge. Appreciate nature from 3 breath-taking perspectives - the world-famous Capilano Suspension Bridge, the Treetops Adventure, and the thrilling Cliffwalk.  This 27-acre park was made famous by its namesake bridge, which was built back in 1889, and has been added onto with even more attractions to let you experience the temperate rainforests of beautiful British Columbia.  While the wobbly bridge and stunning location is a Vancouver landmark, Capilano Suspension Bridge Park offers an all-encompassing BC experience. History, culture, and nature are presented in unique and thrilling ways with knowledgeable staff and interpretive signage providing as much, or as little, information as guests want. The thrilling Cliffwalk hugs the granite cliffside and offers panoramic views of the thriving rainforest and canyon below. With 16 anchor points in the cliff supporting the structure and two glass platforms, this walk is not for the faint of heart. The Treetops Adventure takes guests 110 feet into the canopy of a coastal rainforest on 7 suspension bridges attached to old-growth trees. It is accessible to guests age 2 to 92. Nature guides provide hourly tours, explaining the importance of a West Coast temperate rainforest to the ecosystem. Guided Tours and seasonal events like Raptors Ridge birds of prey June to October and Canyon Lights late November through to end of January enhance the many experiences at this year-round destination.

The flight over Vancouver was terrific !! Even though there is a free shuttle to the Capilano Suspension Bridge, we could just walk past the queue at the entrance to the park with our ticket. So the combination ticket is definitely worth it. But be careful with the flight: Check-in for the flight is 30 minutes before take-off! Unfortunately, that was not stated in the ticket and so we were almost too late.

Gabriel was excellent. Great driver, great tour guide he took us to amazing places. We enjoyed the tour and all the places we went to were great.

Incredible experience of flying around Vancouver seeing its amazing landscapes. 100% recommended

I had an amazing time. Our guide Jeff was the best too!
