The Glacier Skywalk
Excitement intensifies along with the sweeping vistas that accompany the cliffside walkway leading to the Columbia Icefield Skywalk. Built directly into the side of the rugged walls of the Sunwapta Valley, these cliffs are home to nimble-footed mountain goats and soaring eagles.
There is plenty to learn in the interpretive experiences that line the trail – if you can keep your mind away from the glass-floored walkway sparkling in the sunshine ahead of you. From the moment you step onto the transparent surface, your only thoughts will be with the glacial valley and rushing waterfalls 280 metres below your feet.
