The Glacier Skywalk at Banff, Canada
A view from the top…
We look at the amazing Glacier Skywalk situated near Lake Louise, Banff …Located in the Canadian Rockies, the Glacier Skywalk is just minutes from the Columbia Ice field Glacier Discovery Centre on the Icefields Parkway; 1 hour south of Jasper, and 1.5 hours north of Lake Louise. The icefields Parkway has been recognised as one of the top ten drives in the world with over 100 visible glaciers and scenic mountain vistas around every corner.
To add a little heart-pumping adrenaline to all of the surrounding beauty the vertiginous viewing platform features a strengthened glass floor that provides a view straight down to the valley below. Calgary firm, Sturgess Architecture created the cantilevered Glacier Skywalk as part of a 450-metre walkway in the Jasper National Park that provides spectacular views of the adjacent Sunwapta Valley and Athabasca Glacier.
