Glacier Skywalk Opens For Fearless Views of Jasper National Park

Starting today, visitors to Jasper National Park in the Canadian Rockies can view the glacial vistas and sweeping pine valleys from the Glacier Skywalk – and the breathtaking glass observation platform that extends from the cliff’s edge at a staggering height of 918 feet.

The interactive, multi-media walkway guides visitors on a quarter mile tour of the Canadian Rockies, and is a lauded example of both adventurous eco-tourism and daring design. The celebrations continue at the Columbia Icefield with family events on May 10 and 11.
