Glacier skywalk with mountains

Visitors to the Canadian Rockies seek out experiences that connect them with untouched wilderness, wildlife and the exceptional force of nature.  The Icefields Parkway, one of the world’s best drives, certainly delivers all three through driving, hiking, photography expeditions and even back country skiing. In May 2014, there will be another way to experience the splendor of Jasper National Park; at the Glacier Skywalk.  The Glacier Skywalk, operated by Brewster, will officially welcome guests from all over the world to delve into this one-of-a-kind interpretive experience. The experience many are calling is hair-raising. After all wouldn’t you be a little un-nerved if you walked out on a 280 metre (918 foot) glass observation walkway 300 metres above ground? 

As seen on GlacierSkyWalk.ca - Canadian blogger Mike Morrison gives us a taste of the thrilling Glacier Skywalk experience in this 15-second sneak-peek video.

Tickets are $24.95 for adults and $12.50 for kids 6 to 15 years of age. If you are not a fan of heights or walking on the observation platform isn’t your thing, you can still experience the viewpoint by a free shuttle.  

Friendly and knowledgeable staff at the Mount Robson Inn in Jasper and Mountaineer Lodge in Lake Louise will be able to assist in booking this tour for you.  Please call on our services during your stay.
