Glacier SkywalkAmong one of Jasper National Park’s newest attractions is the Glacier Skywalk. This one km walkway off the edge of a cliff, directs you to a glass floor platform (918 feet above the ground). Here you will have the ability to see a variety of wildlife below you (which you can also see through the glass floor and walls), with vast glaciers above and waterfalls in the distance, this is one rare and unique attraction, which is sure to create an adrenalin rush experience you do not want to miss.

This attraction requires you to drive to the Columbia Icefields and park your vehicle in the large (free) parking lot. The Icefields Parkway, highway 93, is one that is known worldwide. Due to its immense jagged mountain peaks, blanketed in snow and ice, along with the variety of wildlife (including but not limited to mountain goats and mountain sheep,) this scenic drive has been rated among one of the best in the world.

Once at the Columbia Icefields building, you can purchase your skywalk tickets and board one of their buses, which will bring you to the Glacier Skywalk area (as no parking is permitted at this site). Once here, you are free to leisure at your own pace while enjoying the spectacular views and interpretive tour (by means of private story telling). Have your camera ready, as this attraction has lots of natural panoramic views for you to enjoy.

Throughout this walk, several benches are placed for you to sit and enjoy the peace, quiet and vastness of this beautiful location. With buses returning back to the Columbia Icefields center quiet often, you can take in your fill of this magnificent beauty.
