Glacier Skywalk

Go beyond the edge of the landscape, and step out onto the Glacier Skywalk. After an amazing drive through the Alpine wilderness, enjoy interpretive exhibits along the cliff-side trail before an adrenaline-rush as you creep along the suspended glass walkway, taking in spectacular glacial vistas in 360 degrees.

Discover one of the best drives in Canada, the Icefields Parkway, paralleling the continental divide along an expanse of alpine wilderness, replete with trees, rock formations, lakes and waterfalls.

Once you reach the Glacier Skywalk, first approach the trail along the cliff's edge, admiring expansive views, along with several interpretive exhibits that help to contextualise the area. Look down to glimpse hints of the thousand-year-old life of the area, then look up to take in stunning alpine and glacial vistas.

Your adrenaline really gets pumping as you step out onto the walkway, a glass-floored observation platform 280 metres (920 feet) above the valley floor. You're literally suspended in the midst of ice-capped mountain peaks and vast, glacially-formed, valleys, filled with boulders, streams and wildlife. Take some time to enjoy the awe-inspiring sights and amazing sounds of the natural wonders around you.

Well ALL of the information on Expedia regarding this tour was incorrect. We showed up at the glacier skywalk at 8:30AM and were told we could not enter because they open at 10am. Well the Expedia information showed it opened at 7:30am. This was a waste of time and we were unable to do the experience because we were short on time and had to get back to the airport. I will be calling for a full refund.
