What You Can Expect
The Capilano Suspension Bridge was originally built in 1889 and its 446 feet (136 meters) spans the Capilano River. A walk across this bridge is a truly unique experience.
New for 2011 is the amazing and awe-inspiring Cliffwalk. The Cliffwalk juts out from the granite cliff face above Capilano River taking guests to previously unexplored areas of the park on a series of unobtrusive cantilevered and suspended walkways. Not for the feint of heart, it is high and narrow and, in some sections, glass is all that separates you from the canyon far below.
Treetops Adventure in one of Capilano Suspension Bridge's attractions and the first venue of its kind in North America, offering a squirrel's eye view of a thriving coastal forest. Visitors venture from one magnificent Douglas fir tree to another on a series of elevated suspension bridges, some reaching as high as 100 feet (30meters) above the forest floor.
In addition to the three main activities, you can join a guided nature or history walk or explore on your own.The Living Forest area provides panels with interactive displays, fun facts and "what's that tree?" identification clues. You'll be well informed for your stroll through the rainforest, past tranquil trout ponds and majestic evergreens. Join a friendly eco guide for a complimentary 20 to 30 minute tour of Capilano Suspension Bridge's West Coast rainforest and discover the mysteries of an old growth forest and its life cycle; learn about the flora and fauna found in our ecosystem; and identify various trees and plant life unique to Vancouver, Canada.

We picked up the free shuttle bus near our hotel in downtown which took about 15 mins to reach Capilano. We skipped the queue with our prepaid tickets and walked up to the bridge, it's a pretty impressive sight! I didn't think i was scared of heights but must admit i found crossing the bridge really scary as it was so wobbly. I rewarded myself with an ice-cream when we got to the other side and enjoyed walking round the beautiful forest, doing the treetops adventure and taking photos. We also did the cliff walk which definitely got the heart racing! We picked up the shuttle bus back with no problems. Overall i'd really recommend the whole experience, it was a great afternoon!
A superb tourist attraction, revamped since our last visit in 1996 with the tree-top and forest walks. We consider it good value for money.
