Description: 

The Capilano Suspension Bridge is 136 metres long (450ft) and crosses the Capilano River at a height of 70 metres (230 feet). Located in North Vancouver, the Capilano Suspension Bridge is a famous landmark and tourist attraction and draws over 800,000 visitors a year. Visitors are free to stroll (or scurry) across the bridge to the other side of the canyon. Part of the fun is that the bridge sways as you move across it but visitors shouldn't worry, it's very, very strong. The bridge is technically strong enough to support the weight of ten military fighter planes.

In addition to the bridge, Capilano also features many glimpses into the history of this very special place. Capilano features North America's largest private collection of totem poles and staff stroll the grouns dressed in period decor and costumes. Many exhibits hightlight the parks history and the surrounding rain forest.

Once visitors reach the other side of the suspension bridge, an entire new world appears -- one among the tree tops. Treetops Adventures consists of seven footbridges suspended between old Douglas Fir trees on the west side of the canyon. This allows visitors to progress along a walkway up to 30 metres above the forest floor.
