Canada's New Suspension Bridge In British Columbia Is One Of The Highest Elevation Bridges In The World

Whistler's new peak suspension bridge looks amazing!

Canada is known for maple syrup, kind-hearted people and our unconditional love of hockey - However, some would say that the Great North is most well known for our magnificent views. 

Canada is home to some of the world's most breathtaking mountain ranges and extraordinary landscapes. People travel from all over the world to ski our mountains, explore our forests and hike our valleys!

So, Canada's newest suspension bridge has naturally become one the must-see places for travelers to check out when they're visiting our amazing country. The Peak Suspension Bridge is located in Whistler, BC! 

Whistler Blackcomb just opened up one of the highest suspension bridges in the entire world! The bridge is so high that some people might be too afraid to cross it. It's located 7200 feet above sea level! How crazy is that?!

Vancouver's Capilano Suspension bridge is 230 feet above Capilano River. Ontario's Ranney Gorge Suspension bridge hangs 300 feet above the ground! Alberta's uber famous Glacier Skywalk is a whopping 918 feet tall! 

None of those bridges even compare to how high Whistler's Peak Suspension Bridge is! Even though the bridge is 164 feet above Whistler Bowl, the entire structure is sitting on top of a gigantic mountain range. The bridge is so high in the air that the temperature actually changes - so even if it's hot down below, make sure to pack an extra layer if you plan to walk across the bridge.

Don't worry about the safety factor. This bridge may look tiny from far away, but the structure is completely solid! It was built by experts so you don't have to worry about some rickety wooden bridge, this bridge is strong and completely made of metal.

The bridge is also a shocking 427 feet long! Yes, you'll be walking across that bridge for a few minutes before you get to the other side. If you're afraid of heights, be wary!
