Canada’s Newest and Highest Suspension Bridges

I am super excited to learn that we will have two new suspension bridges in British Columbia. Last year, I planned a suspension bridge road trip in BC, but it never happened…well, it’s happening this year! Located near Golden, BC, the Golden Skybridge is opening in June 2021 with COVID safety protocols in place. It’s a few hour’s drive from my home, so it’s a perfect road trip to explore the area between Revelstoke and Banff. This is a great stop during your Western Canada self-drive road trip!

Canada's highest suspension bridges...the @GoldenSkybridge by @pursuitbanffjasper near Golden, BC, look over the Columbia Valley. These brand new suspension bridges just opened this month and the views are stunning. From here you can see the Rocky and Purcell mountain ranges and listen to the crashing river and 200-foot waterfall thundering below. There's a canyon swing for photo Insta-worthy photo ops and coming soon... a zipline! You have to add this to your list of places to visit on a Western Canadian road trip!

Walking across these new highest suspension bridges in Canada, you’ll have a 360° view of the gorgeous Columbia and Rocky mountain ranges and an amazing waterfall and canyon 425 feet below.

The Golden Skybridge will feature a three-kilometre-long nature walk weaving throughout the park and across both suspension bridges. Viewing platforms will provide guests with further opportunity to take in the picturesque landscapes. An outdoor courtyard and café at the experience base will provide the perfect pre-and post-stop rest along the mountain journey.

I am too terrified to do the following. Still, for the more adventurous explorers, the Golden Skybridge will also feature a tandem bungee swing and a 1,200-metre zipline spanning the canyon, opening later this summer.  Eeeek!

To capture the sunrise moments, you can stay in nearby Golden, BC, surrounded by six Canadian national mountain parks, and Banff is only a 90-minute drive from Golden Skybridge, too.

I’m going, are you?
