5 Reasons to Visit Golden Skybridge this Summer
Tucked just off the beaten path near Golden, B.C., Golden Skybridge
is a truly one-of-a-kind alpine attraction. Here are just a few reasons to add it to your summer 2023 itinerary.
1. The views are epic.
Home to Canada’s highest suspension bridge, the views at Golden Skybridge are completely unique. Two bridges cross an expansive canyon with a towering waterfall. The first bridge is 130 metres (426 feet) high and 150 metres (492 feet) long, while bridge two is 80 metres (262 feet) high and 140 metres (459 feet) long. From these bridges, guests are treated to one-of-a-kind vantage points of rushing rivers, pounding water from the falls, craggy peaks and a seemingly endless forest.
2. The location is ideal.
Located just off the Trans-Canada Highway and minutes from Golden townsite, Golden Skybridge is a perfect pit stop if you are travelling between B.C. and Alberta. This attraction is surrounded by six national parks, so there’s no shortage of adventure and views in the area. Or, if you’re staying in Banff, it’s just a 90-minute drive through the mountains.
3. It’s perfect for the whole family.
There are more than three kilometres of accessible nature trails around both bridges that lead to alpine viewing platforms — perfect for a family photo op with a stunning background. There’s also an on-site food truck and kids’ park, complete with a mini bridge and treehouse, to keep everyone entertained.
4. There are experiences for the thrill-seekers.
For those with a true sense of adventure, Golden Skybridge offers even more heart-pumping activities beyond the bridges.
Spanning across the canyon is the Sky Zipline — an opportunity to speed through the skies on an adrenaline-inducing ride. In the treetops, you’ll find the Canyon Edge Challenge Course, where adventurers can navigate rope courses of varying difficulty levels.
Back in The Village, guests can test their aim in axe throwing lanes, scale a 28-foot rock climbing wall or kick back with a snack and a cold drink to bask in the summer sun.
You can do it all with an Adventure Pass
— your all-access ticket to sky-high fun at Golden Skybridge.
5. There’s always more excitement on the horizon
The 2023 season will kick off with the debut of the Railrider Mountain Coaster. Hop onboard and carve the canyon side on this fun-filled ride, included with your Adventure Pass. You’ll also find night markets, live music and more fun events popping up throughout the season. Plus, check back later for the highly opening of the Giant Canyon Swing. Suffice it to say, there’s never a dull moment at the Golden Skybridge.
