Explore the Capilano Suspension Bridge

Added by Ian Tyley

This unique suspension bridge offers scenic forest views just 15 minutes from downtown Vancouver. 

This is a great place to visit to get a feeling for the outdoors of Canada. The bridge is a little scary when a lot of people are walking across, but it is well worth the look.

Measuring 140 m (460 ft) long, the bridge crosses over the Capilano River in the District of North Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, and sits 70 m (230 ft) above the river.

Cool to walk on

Beautiful views, I think it's one of the longest suspension bridges in the world? It was pretty cool to walk on. Only downside is it is pretty popular and kinda pricey.

Beauty in Vancouver

It was a little expensive. Very beautiful scenes but there was a good amount of people. There is a canyon with a suspension bridge to the east that is free and was very beautiful as well.

Perfect cloudy day adventure

You might be a little hesitant to pay the price (show your student ID for some solid discounts), but it's definitely worth it if you can avoid the crowds. We went on a cloudy day, and it added to the mood really nicely and made for some cool shots.

Cool spot!

A bit expensive but a very cool place! Try to go in the off season and on a rainy day that way there will be significantly a lot less people in the park!

Go on a Weekday for a Better Experience, or during bad weather

This place is very cool and the ticket is worth it if you are a BC resident because you can get an annual pass for the ticket price. The place is waaaay too crowded on weekends however, and I would say that Lynn Canyon Suspension Bridge is cooler. However, Capilano suspension Bridge and the park is still pretty awesome and worth checking out! Best to come when it is pouring rain or on a weekday when less tourists are around.
