Visit the spectacular Capilano Suspension Bridge Park in Vancouver, an iconic destination where you can walk across the misty evergreen woods and whitewaters of the region with Cliffwalk. Enjoy a breathtaking expedition of an ancient ecosystem with the help of modern engineering. Imagine a fabulous journey in the sky through wooden walkways and glacier-carved granite. With Cliffwalk you can see the world, notably its last coastal temperate rainforest from a bird’s perspective. Take your binoculars with you and watch the natural home of eagles, bears and deer from a height in total safety. Stroll across the skies of Vancouver with Cliffwalk!

The sky is the limit

Let yourself be guided on a tour with Cliffwalk on a suspended walkway which is strongly anchored above the Capilano River in a height approximately 91 m. You can join the trip in the sky over waterfalls and rainforests while you take a look at the wildlife down below. The stroll takes you on a 213 m long journey where sometimes the only thing separating you from the open air is a safety glass.

This modern achievement is constructed in a very unobtrusive way which has no negative effect on the ecology. The park has also a very original attraction which can be enjoyed only by the brave. Cross over the 70 m high suspension bridge taking the 140 m long wobbly duck-walk and discover the forest canopy going from tree to tree on Treetops Adventure. As you land on solid ground again, head towards the totem poles and the long house where you can learn more about the culture and history of the First Nations.

It is recommended to visit the park during the summer season between July and August when the weather is the warmest but in December it is also worth visiting and seeing the spectacular Canyon Lights display. If you would like to avoid the crowds we suggest you to be an early bird. Since the park is located in the northern part of Vancouver it takes you only 20 minutes by car to get there from downtown. If you prefer public transport you can take a shuttle which sets out from the center of the city and is free of charge. You can also take the metro or a taxi.
