Glacier Skywalk Opens For Fearless Views of Jasper National Park

201405-hd-canadian-glacier-skywalkjpg

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.
