Feed your adrenaline and step into a breathtaking world where glaciers rest above and birds soar below. Experience waterfalls, wildlife, fossils and more on an exciting cliff-edge walkway that leads to a platform where glass is all that separates you from a 918 foot drop. A new way to connect with the Canadian Rockies!
The Glacier Skywalk experience begins with a five minute scenic transfer by coach from the Columbia Icefield Glacier Discovery Centre. Take your time to journey along the Discovery Trail; a fully-accessible, cliff-edge walkway that extends along the Sunwapta Valley. Look down and you'll see hints from life thousands of years ago. Look up and you'll see the most stunning mountain and glacial vistas. Look around and you'll discover one of the most unique ecosystems in the world - a place that's so hard to survive that adaptation never ends.
The grand finale to this experience is a glass-floored observation platform 280 metres (918 feet) over the Sunwapta Valley. A bird's eye view, fully accessible to all abilities provides the most unique perspective of nature at its finest.
This entire journey is presented in an interpretive story-telling format that will be sure to leave you with a special bond for our natural world that few people in the world have the opportunity to experience. In other words, it's flat. out. awesome!
