Calling all adventure seekers: Add this truly epic suspension bridge to your post-Covid travel wish list.
The newest jaw-dropping attraction from Pursuit (you might know them from Iceland's new geothermal, oceanside lagoon), Golden Skybridge in Canada will consist of the two highest suspension bridges in the country, connecting forested trails in British Columbia's iconic Columbia and Rocky mountain ranges.
The newly constructed bridges sit on top of each other—one at 130 metres and the other at 80 metres above ground—and offer up dramatic 360-degree views of the area's alpine vistas, including a roaring 61-metre waterfall and serene mountain river in the deep canyon below.
“There is such pristine natural beauty in this corner of British Columbia and the Golden Skybridge will provide visitors with an intimate look at such stunning mountain scenery,” says Paul Deutsch, one of the local developers who worked on the bridge.
The Golden Skybridge will be part of a three-kilometre-long nature walk, which weaves through the mountain park and across both suspension bridges. Viewing platforms will provide guests with even more selfie opportunities in the picturesque landscape and an outdoor courtyard and café at the base serves as a snack break and rest stop from the journey. And for real adrenaline junkies, the Golden Skybridge is planning to open a tandem bungee swing and 1,200-metre zipline later this summer.
The bridge is also centrally located for those looking to explore everything Canda has to offer. The mountain town of Golden is surrounded by six Canadian national parks and a convenient spot for tourists travelling between Calgary, Banff, the Okanagan and Vancouver.
The bridge is set to open in May 2021. And while, Canada is currently closed to most travellers, that doesn't stop us from putting this epic new attraction at the top of our "when it's safe" to-do list.
