Overview

Walk the retreating path of the mighty Athabasca Glacier with an experienced guide and learn how Mother Nature transforms a landscape that appears desolate and barren into a valley of lush vegetation and wildlife. You will see plants that hold unique adaptations to survive the harsh mountain climate, rocks that tell the ancient story of mountain building, and techniques that will help you survive off the land like the early Explorers and Native Aboriginals.

The service to skywalk by brewsters tours was very good. The actual skywalk was really cool. Beautiful scenery and exciting walk on glass. Some glass is frosted and some is clear so even someone with fears of height can do it. Amazing time!!!!!!!

We didn't want to wait 2 hours for the next Columbia Icefield tour, so we signed up for the sky walk instead. Initially, disappointing because it wasn't over the actual glacier, but over a canyon, it still had a lot to offer as an educational...More

Although this was part of the ice field tour it was ok. Nice view on the spacewalk but u can miss this if you choose. It's a nice attraction but not really necessary.

It is so worth it. It is not just the skywalk which is this great glass floored walkway out over a canyon, they have really thought about how to get people engaged with their surroundings. You get a handheld audio tour too. I have done...More

It is an interesting experience to be standing on glass and look down! Yeowza! But you are not over the glacier, you are over the Sunwapta Valley. You do this for the novelty of standing out there feeling like you are out there in space....More

If you want to do something touristy I'd suggest this over the glacier walk, by value for money, however the views are not different to what you could see from the road- you are paying for the novelty of this experience of walking on glass...More

The newly opened sky walk over the glacier is an additional attraction to visit this magnificent place. Do carry thick woolens even in summer, the view is simply stunning and it's dream come true, a heaven on earth. Sad to know that the glacier is...More
