Canada is getting an epic new suspension bridge, which will be the highest in the whole country. The new Golden Skybridge will consist of the two highest suspension bridges in the country, connecting forest trails in British Columbia’s Columbia and Rocky Mountain ranges.
The two bridges, built in the town of Golden, will sit on top of each other and offer 360-degree views of alpine vista, including a thundering 200-foot waterfall and the deep canyon below.
One bridge will be 426 feet high while the other will be 262 feet, and both will be part of a two-mile nature walk. Guests will be able to enjoy the serene landscape on viewing platforms, and for a less serene experience, a tandem bungee swing and zipline spanning the canyon will be installed later this summer. An outdoor courtyard and cafe will also be available for visitors at the base.
Golden is located in southeast British Columbia, 90 minutes from Banff, and is surrounded by six Canadian national mountain parks.
The bridge is scheduled to open in May 2021. When the travel restrictions in Canada are finally relaxed, make sure this spot is on your list.
