Treetops Adventure is one the most popular experiences at Capilano Suspension Bridge Park and the first venue of its kind in North America. It offers a squirrel’s eye view of a thriving coastal forest.
New – Treetops Adventure Reaches New Heights!
Guests, and squirrels, will enjoy an even higher perspective of the West Coast Rainforest at Capilano Suspension Bridge Park. Treetops Adventure, a series of seven suspension bridges attached to eight 30 ton, 250 year old Douglas-firs, is being raised 10 feet to take guests up to 110 feet above the forest floor. Built in 2004, the innovative and award-winning Treetops Adventure was designed to accommodate the continuous growth of the trees. The viewing platforms are attached to an innovative tree collar system that is adjustable and moveable and has no nails or bolts penetrating into the Douglas-firs. It is unlike any canopy walk in the world. Over the past 10 years the trees have grown in circumference and it is time to loosen the collars and move them up. This means we will also be raising the platforms and bridges ten feet, creating an even more thrilling view.
Visitors will now be able to venture from one magnificent Douglas fir tree to another on a series of elevated suspension bridges, some reaching as high as 110 feet (33.5m) above the forest floor. Guided nature tours and the Kids’ Rainforest Explorer program are some of the Vancouver activities that enhance this unique rainforest encounter. Recognized for extraordinary innovation with national and provincial tourism and engineering awards, a walk on Treetops Adventure has emerged as one of Vancouver’s quintessential activities.
Visitors looking for unique Vancouver activities and seeking adventure without danger love Treetops Adventure. It offers guests yet another exceptional experience, enhancing Capilano Suspension Bridge Park’s reputation as one of Vancouver’s top attractions.
Completion of Treetops Adventure upgrades is scheduled for April 30, 2014.
