Capilano Suspension Bridge

The Capilano Suspension Bridge is an excellent way to spend a few hours taking in breathtaking views while learning about BC's history, its majetic rain forests and taking in some fresh mountain air, all right here in the city. This century's old Vancouver landmark is located across the Burrard Inlet in North Vancouver. The 136 metre cable-stayed bridge stretches across the Capilano River at a height of 70 metres. At the west end, nature trails and smaller bridges allow visitors to take in some of the beautiful Douglas Firs and views of the local rainforest the coast is known for. While the bridge itself is not wheelchair accessible, there is much to do on the east side, just inside the gate. Annually 800,000 visitors to experience this unique bridge. From a historic 1911 turn-of-the-century shop to the ageless native totem poles, to award-winning gardens and First Nations performances, Capilano Suspension Bridge is a longtime destination for visitors to Vancouver.
