A new skybridge due to open in Canada in May will offer expansive mountain views from the top of the highest suspension bridges in the country.
Located in the mountain town of Golden, the Golden Skybridge will connect forested trails in British Columbia's Columbia and Rocky mountain ranges. The newly-constructed bridges sit at 130- and 80-meters high, respectively, and will offer up dramatic 360-degree views of expansive alpine vistas. They will also showcase a 61-meter waterfall and the serene mountain river in the deep canyon below.
The two bridges will be connected via a woodland footpath totalling three kilometers in length, and viewing platforms will provide further opportunities to take in the picturesque landscapes. There will be an outdoor courtyard and café at the experience base, and for more adventurous explorers, the Golden Skybridge will also feature a tandem bungee swing and 1,200 metre zipline spanning the canyon, opening later this summer. There is plenty to explore locally as Golden is surrounded by six Canadian national mountain parks.
