Here are some breathtaking suspension bridges you need to visit in Canada.
This highest suspension bridge in Canada is definitely not for the faint of heart. Swaying a massive 2,000 feet above the Whistler Bowl, the caged bottom allows you to see through for a full 360 degree experience.
This 450-foot long bridge, which suspends 230 feet above Capilano River is truly a Vancouver landmark and an absolute must on your suspension bridge bucket list. Drawing in over a million adventurers each year, the park also offers other attractions like the Cliff Walk and Treetop Adventures.
The Sky Pilot Suspension Bridge, which overlooks Howe Sound, offers breathtaking views of steep-sided fjords and coastal forest. Even the journey up is enough to blow you away. Take the 10-minute gondola ride and enjoy the views of beautiful British Columbia landscape through the floor-to-ceiling glass windows.
Only a short trip from downtown Quebec City, this suspension bridge spans over the impressive Montmorency Falls, which are nearly 100 feet higher than Niagara Falls. Brave the 487-step staircase or take the cable car — you’re going to absolutely love these year-round views. There’s also a 985-foot double zip line, if you’re feeling especially gutsy.
This hidden gem is well worth the longer half-hour drive from Quebec City. At Canyon Sainte-Anne, you will get to explore the gorge from three different suspension bridges, including one that is 196 feet high. The thunderous waterfalls and the jagged rocks of the billion-year-old Canadian Shield can be viewed from six unique lookouts.
This is the longest suspension bridge in Canada at 600 feet! Eagle Canyon Adventures is also home to Canada’s longest and fastest zip line, where adrenaline junkies can fly above the lush forest and mountain trails at 45 mph. The downfall is that it’s not open year-round like some of our other favourites.
This 420-foot suspension bridge is southern Ontario’s longest and is only two hours from Toronto. The bridge offers up spectacular views of the crystal blue waters and chiseled cliffs of the Georgian Bay below. Open year-round, you can walk the suspension bridge in snowshoes in the winter and explore some of their many natural caves in the summer.
Stretching across the Big Salmon River and surrounded by thick bush of towering Pine trees, this 275-foot suspension bridge offers a complete rugged wilderness experience. The 2,559-hectares of Fundy Trail Parkway is full of lookouts and beaches, plus over 30 km of hiking and biking trails.
You can take in one of the largest waterfalls in Manitoba from a suspension bridge that spans the lower part of the falls at Pisew Falls Provincial Park. Continue down the tough seven-mile hike, which starts at the bridge, to see the Kwasitchewan Falls. The hike takes around 12 hours.
If you ever find yourself in Whitehorse, don’t miss out on the chance to walk just 65 feet above the rushing white-water rapids of the Tutshi River on this 57-foot suspension bridge. Marvel at the dramatic peaks of the historic White Pass summit, which is only a few miles away.
