What You Can Expect
As you walk along this cliff-edge boardwalk in the Sunwapta Valley, admire the stunning mountain vistas and enjoy the interpretive displays that strive to introduce you to the geological history and current physical features of Canada’s mighty glaciers. Learn about how water shaped this landscape millions of years ago, the ancient sea creatures that once lived here, the tough survival instincts of various life forms, the eco-friendly design and construction of the Skywalk, the plant life that lives in this region, and the way water flows from the Columbia Icefield to the Arctic, Pacific and Atlantic oceans.
Perched at the end of the Discovery Trail is this glass-bottomed platform that stands 918 feet (280 meters) above the Sunwapta Valley. It’s a thrilling way to enjoy the gorgeous views of the valley and the snow-capped mountain peaks.
It was beautiful. The views were stunning and even this scared of heights person did well. The glass on the bridge was very clear and we could see bighorn sheep grazing under the bridge.
Excellent views especially as it had been snowing
This tour would of been fantastic if I could have completed it however my fear of heights stopped me from participating howevery.husband did do it and we have amazing photos. Tjiscwas well organised and informative
This was an awesome event. The skywalk gives an awesome view.
This was a wonderful experience. It's an amazing feat of engineering.
Above all.... experience was awesome!
This tour was amazing!
was an interesting experience and great scenic vista's. Purchased my tickets on Viator before the trip and had them in an electronic format. This then needs to be emailed to their admissions desk, printed out and manually re-entered to print boarding tickets. The queue was long and inefficient. Would have been just as quick to stand in the normal queue and probably a faster experience once at the front of the queue. To continue promoting the purchase prior to arrival, suggest that discussions are held with the Glacier Skywalk attraction to move into the 21st century to accept electronic tickets...
It was very expensive for what you got. The glass on the skywalk is starting to get really scuffed up. It's hard to see through clearly in most spots.
Worth doing. Great views, although I expected more Glacier views then an education on topography.
