Glacier Skywalk, Canada

The Glacier Skywalk is the hottest new nature and learning attraction along Alberta’s Icefields Parkway in Canada. It’s built into native bedrock with steel, glass and wood. Open May through October, this one-hour experience begins at the Columbia Icefield Discovery Centre.

It is designed as an extension of surrounding landscape. The 30 meter curved glass walkway extends 35 m from the cliff. The investor (Brewster Travel Canada) wanted to create an experience that would connected guests with nature and give them an opportunity to view Sunwapta Falls in Canada’s Rocky Mountains and enjoy the beauty of Jasper National Park.

The glass-floored observation platform hovers 918 ft. above Sunwapta Valley and is the grand finale of the Glacier Skywalk interpretive experience.
