When going to Vancouver, a lot of people tell you, that you really need to go see the Capilano Suspension Bridge because it is breathtaking and that’s what tourists do around here. I thought about doing it, because it’s in some kind of a park, I love nature and I feel like I always wanna do whatever you are “supposed to” do in a city. (I know, this is not always the right way to do it, but you know… FOMO)
BUT, it is over 30$ (30.95$ for students and 37.95$ for adults) and I gotta say, I don’t know if this is really worth it?!
Well anyways, me and a girl in the hostel thought about it for a while, when we met another girl in our room who told us about this national park Lynn Canyon Park, which is located in North Vancouver. You only had to take a bus, which costs the normal bus fair, and then you are free to go around the park as long as you want to, no charges. And let me tell you, I haven’t been to the Capilano Suspension Bridge, but the suspension bridge they had at the Lynn Canyon Park was pretty impressive as it is. We spent about 4 hours just wandering around the park, taking millions of pictures because it was just beautiful. And that was in the winter. I can only imagine how amazing it all looks once it’s summertime!
So yeah, if you’ve got the spare change, go and check out the Capilano Suspension Bridge, I’m sure it is nice, especially since the bridge is definitely higher than the one at Lynn Canyon Park, but if you are a poor backpacker like I am and you still want to experience Canada’s amazing nature and feel the thrill of walking over a suspension bridge – Lynn Canyon Park it is!
