While the recently opened Whistler Suspension Bridge takes travellers to awe-inspiring heights, it isn’t the only one of its kind in British Columbia.
In fact, many residents are unaware that there is another breathtaking crossway in the province. And, while it may not be quite as high as Whistler’s, the Mount Nimbus Suspension Bridge is not for the faint of heart.
Standing at a stomach-dropping 1,000 feet high, the soaring structure stuns visitors with its incredible stature.
Located near Golden, BC, visitors must start their journey at the Bobby Burns Lodge. From here, they are helicoptered off to a valley near the site of the bridge; however, the journey does not stop there.
For one thing, the bridge isn’t simply located on Mount Nimbus; the daunting crossing is located en route to the peak of of the mountain, Via Ferrata. In order to reach that summit, visitors must take a 2.5 km hike to the mountain range. From here, they’ll make their journey up the mountain, where they will come to the crossing.

Mount Nimbus Suspension Bridge
Of course, the crossing won’t take you to the very peak of Via Ferrata. If you want to do that, you’ll have to hike up the highest point. While it can be done, it takes a lion’s share of bravery.
With that in mind, the picture is priceless, and you’ll feel like you’re on top of the world (literally).
Now Discovering the Mount Nimbus Via Ferrata in British Columbia, Canada with @jamieout. "One of my 2017 travel highlights was hiking to Mount Nimbus Via Ferrata in British Columbia. The hike was an easy one for me as I was able to clip into cables along its route, making it more safer and approachable. A helicopter ride with CMH Heli-Skiing and Summer Adventures is needed to get to its base. Definitely a bucket list spot for me." #nowdiscovering #thediscoverer
The experience is offered exclusively through the Bobbie Burns lodge. So, anyone that wants to try the daring excursion must be a guest at their accommodation .
