  • In my opinion, nothing gives a high better than walking the suspension bridge on your own, as you feel your weight dangle atop the stiff Capilano canyon below which is gushing with water
  • Of course, I would recommend the Capilano Suspension bridge to anyone new to Vancouver

      I have to say that visiting the Capilano Suspension Bridge is the “welcome to Vancouver” for any visitor. You haven’t been to Vancouver if you haven’t been in this magnificent nature spot.

      Stanley Park, known the world over as Vancouver’s sprawling forest and wildlife sanctuary, just doesn’t cut it. In my opinion, nothing gives a high better than walking the suspension bridge on your own, as you feel your weight dangle atop the stiff Capilano canyon below which is gushing with water.

      It’s easy to visit the Capilano Suspension bridge. From Vancouver terminal Sky Train station in the Waterfront area,


      just take the seabus, a short, 15-minute ferry ride that takes you to the island of North Vancouver. Once there, you can take bus #236 to the Capilano Suspension Bridge.

      If you’re driving, you cross historic Lions Gate bridge near Stanley Park to get to North Vancouver. Then you make a left on Capilano Road. From there, Capilano Suspension bridge should be an almost two-mile or almost three-kilometer drive. Of course, you can’t drive all the way to the Capilano Suspension bridge, as it can only be crossed on foot.

      It took off some scare from my pounding heart ...


      • after I realized that they had replaced the bridge’s roping with steel that can support the weight of two fully loaded 747 planes. That’s some relief! But I must admit, nothing truly prepares you as you look down at the gushing waters of the canyon.

        The pervading smell of cedar, helped me feel less nauseous though. I might do it again in the future, when I need to get a natural high like this, but I must admit the admission fee of almost $30 is quite prohibitive, especially when you have to entertain your guests. Of course, there

        are other spots to visit in this nature hub, such as the wonderful tree house and the totem poles.

        But I really wish the provincial government or the Canadian government should make this nature spot free for all Canadians to enjoy without discrimination. After all, the park’s revenues can otherwise be generated from the souvenir stores and eating areas alone.

        Of course, I would recommend the Capilano Suspension bridge to anyone new to Vancouver. If you haven’t been here, you haven’t been to Vancouver!
