This magical suspension bridge near Ottawa winds through the treetops and it’s free to visit
You’ll feel like a woodland fairy floating through the trees at this suspension bridge in Mont-Tremblant. If you are planning a road trip in the area and looking for things to do, this magical “Bridge of Dreams” is free to visit.
Bel Air Tremblant is a resort with domes, pods and cabin rentals but you don’t have to be a guest to take advantage of the activities offered. Everyone can walk through the trees and admire the view surrounded by twinkling lights.
This luminous trail is made up of four bridges connected by platforms from which you can gaze out through the treetops. Although you can walk through during the day, it’s even more magical at night, surrounded by the warm glow of the lights. You’ll find this pontoon bridge off a trail behind the Clubhouse.
Near the end of the bridge trail, there are openings through the trees where you’ll spot an animal farm in the distance. This is another of the many activities on offer here and is also free if you are looking to make a furry friend.
Resort staff recommends calling reception ahead of time so they can guide you to the bridge and inform you of security requirements. There is a maximum of six people who can be on each connecting platform and up to two people per suspension bridge at a time.
The bridge is open year-round except during heavy snowfalls in winter. In this case, you can instead enjoy snowmobiling, snowshoeing or dog sledding. In the summer, you can rent kayaks, go mountain biking, or zipline through the trees. There are different fees for each of these seasonal adventures.
