This list includes a range of locations, from north to south, east to west, so there’s sure to be something for everyone.

1) Capilano Suspension Bridge, British Columbia

One of the most beautiful views in Northern America is afforded by an artificial structure, the Capilano Suspension Bridge. This suspension bridge provides one of the most thrilling vistas for Canada’s amazing West Coast Rain Forest. Constructed in 1889, the bridge is a remarkable architectural achievement, spanning 450 ft (just over 137m) in length. As you walk across, you are suspended some 230 ft (69.5m) over the Capilano River, one of the major water sources for residents of the greater Vancouver area. The best times to go are after snowfall or rain, as drier months can see the river reduced to a trickle. Still, you won’t be disappointed regardless of when you decide to visit. The sounds of the wildlife and dramatic landscapes of the Canadian wilderness are sure the enchant you. Another bonus is that you are only a short distance away from the beautiful city of Vancouver, and an amazing choice of sight-seeing destinations.
