In Canada, you can stroll through the clouds along a cliff-edge walkway where glass is all that separates you from a 918-foot drop.
The Glacier Skywalk is a one-of-a-kind attraction in Banff, Alberta that's perfect for people seeking a thrill. The adventure starts with a one-kilometre hike on the Discovery Trail that leads to waterfalls, wildlife, and fossils in the Sunwapta Valley.
Once you get to the top, you'll step onto a glass platform that stretches past the edge of the cliff. The sights here are unmatched — you'll see some of the most breathtaking scenes in the country, with majestic mountain ranges and towering glaciers backing the Banff landscape.
The park itself is one of the most unique ecosystems in the world. The remoteness of the region makes it a hard place to survive in, so the bird's eye view is the best way to witness nature's power of adaptation.
The entire experience is designed to "follow the water" which stems from the Columbia Icefield. Your walk will be accompanied by interpretive story-telling features that will help you establish a deeper understanding of the local environment.
Six interpretive stations are set up along the cliff-edge walkway to highlight important facts of the glacial valley. You can also speak to on-site guides (included in admission price) who can offer you additional information.
Admission to the Glacier Skywalk is $31 per person, and bookings are available online. For more information, visit the Banff Jasper Collection website.
