Glacier Skywalk

Step out on a cliff-edge walkway where giant glaciers perch above you and the spectacular Sunwapta Valley spreads out below. The Glacier Skywalk experience features waterfalls, wildlife, fossils and more on an exciting 1-kilometre walkway that leads to a platform where glass is all that separates you from a 918-foot (280 m) drop. 

The Glacier Skywalk experience begins with a five-minute scenic transfer by coach from the Columbia Icefield Glacier Discovery Centre. Take your time as you 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 – in a place where it’s so hard to survive, the adaptation never ends
The grand finale to this experience is a glass-floored observation platform 280 metres (918 feet) over the Sunwapta Valley. This is a bird's eye view that’s fully accessible to all abilities and is an incredibly unique perspective of nature at its finest.
This entire journey is presented in an interpretive story-telling format that’ll connect you on a deeper level with the natural world. It’s a place so special that only a handful of people in the world have had the opportunity to experience it.
