Glacier Skywalk, Canada

This skywalk in Jasper, Alberta, Canada, is a cliff-side trek to reach the scenic overlook that starts at the Columbia Icefield Glacier Discovery Center. The walkway goes along the edge of a cliff above the Sunwapta Valley. The view from the path includes the Canadian Rockies and glaciers.

The trail ends at a glass-floor observation deck that's 918 feet above the valley. Along the route, there's information about the valley, mountains and glaciers. The interpretive installations cover the geology, nature, anthropology and hydrology of the valley and mountains.
