Just minutes from downtown Vancouver, the Capilano Suspension Bridge takes you to the natural splendor of British Columbia. Breathe in the cedar-scented forest air on your way through Vancouver's famous landmark. Walk along the evergreen rainforest through beautiful trails and the unique perspective of the Treetops Adventure, one foot high in the trees.

Treetops Adventure is the newest of the Capilano Suspension Bridge attractions and the first location of its kind in North America, offering views of the thriving coastal forest. Visitors venture into the magnificent Douglas fir on a series of high suspension bridges, some reaching up to 100 feet above the forest.

The Living Forest provides panels, interactive displays, fun facts and "what does this tree mean?" by identification marks. Bug boxes show critters at work in the ground. The giant "Naturalist's Notepad" panel illustrates life in ponds and the world of a fallen tree. Visitors are well informed for their walk through temperate rainforest, past tranquil trout ponds and majestic conifers.

Join an eco-friendly guide for a free 20-30 minute tour of the Capilano Suspension Bridge of the West Coast Rainforest. Discover the mysteries of an ancient forest and its life cycle; learn about the flora and fauna of our ecosystem and identify the various trees and plants unique to Vancouver, Canada.

Watch First Nations legends being chiseled in cedar and share with guests at the Kia'palano, First Nations Cultural Center. Traditional weaving and beadwork are also demonstrated on this day.
