Capilano Suspension Bridge, Canada
Don’t like heights? Don’t look down. The Cliffwalk at Capilano Suspension Bridge Park ranks amongst Vancouver’s top attractions, but it’s not one for the faint of heart. Opened in 2011, courageous visitors head here for unbeatable views, but it comes at a cost, with a great test of nerve required in order to see the spectacular sights.
Cantilevered and suspended walkways jut out from the rugged granite cliff face, while innumerable trees and the beautiful Capilano River can be seen down below. It’s high and it’s narrow, and in some parts the walkway is made of glass, making for a truly terrifying passage through the rainforest vegetation.
It’s safe, of course, with a weight limit of 45 tonnes, the equivalent of 35 adult killer whales. Such statistics don’t make it any less scary, though, and this is an experience guaranteed to put your courage to the ultimate test.
