The Capilano Suspension Bridge Park is a bit of a tourist attraction – correction, it’s for sure a tourist attraction, yet it’s awesome. I had no idea that the temperate rainforest is so awesome! The humidity, the smell and all the moss are unbelievably amazing. Check out some of our photos below – so much fun!

The park is quite big at just under 30 acres and the suspension bridge is the main attraction measuring 450 feet. That’s a lot of steps to take so high off the ground! The park is also home to a cliff walk and tree houses.

You can sign up for a tour, too, or just grab a map and go.

The greenery is so vibrant and the forest smells so fresh and green (if something can smell green, that is).

It’s the bridge!

We were one of the first to arrive and as such, I got a couple great pictures of just us on the empty bridge.

Time to walk – the bridge sways back and forth. For me, at first, I needed to hang on to the sides to feel comfortable. Then, I let go and away I went!

The beauty in the temperate rainforest is indescribable. The variety of plants and different textures is amazing – I flat out love Canada.

The park has a few cafes and one huge gift shop with loads of candy and fudge. Oh, and ice cream, too; but the rainforest is the star.

Overall, if you’re anywhere close to Vancouver and have a few hours to spare then visit the Capilano Suspension Bridge Park – you’ll have a blast. We spent about 3 hours here and walked everywhere we could. My favourite? The treetop adventure with all the tree houses. It’s so neat. Bring a rain coat or an umbrella, since it is the rainforest after all.

Thanks for visiting and I’ll see you again soon. Happy travelling!
