Climb and Fly Through the Treetops at Grouse Mountain

Experience the exhilaration of a zip line tour at Grouse Mountain. The two-hour experience includes five zip lines that weave through the treetops of Grouse and Dam Mountains. You’ll reach speeds of up to 70 km/h! The circuit uses a dual-line system so you can fly next to a friend or family member. Or balance, jump, climb and swing through the trees on the Mountain Ropes Adventure. Explore courses of increasing difficulty as you navigate tubes, nets, bridges, and zip lines.

Test Your Fear of Heights At Capilano Suspension Bridge Park

The 30-acre Capilano Suspension Bridge Park has lots of precipitous views to get your heart racing. The iconic suspension bridge is 137 meters (450 ft) long and towers 70 m (230 ft) above the Capilano River. Brave the Cliffwalk, a series of cantilevered and suspended walkways jutting out from granite cliffs above the river. Or get a squirrel’s eye view on the Treetops Adventure. It includes seven suspension bridges that let you walk through the forest canopy.
