EdgeWalk is the "World's Highest External Walk on a Building"...

EdgeWalk is the "World's Highest External Walk on a Building" (Guinness World Record), a full circle hands-free walk on a 5 ft (1.5 m) wide ledge encircling the top of the Tower's main pod. Visitors walk in groups of six, while attached to an overhead safety rail via a trolley and harness system. Trained EdgeWalk guides encourage participants to push their personal limits, allowing them to lean back over Toronto with nothing but air and breathtaking views of Lake Ontario beneath them. Designed with the highest international safety and security standards in mind, EdgeWalk runs 1.5 hours, with the outdoor walk lasting approximately 30 minutes. Tickets include a keepsake video, photos and certificate of achievement. Participants also receive a CN Tower re-admission General Admission ticket + SkyPod (includes access to LookOut, Glass Floor/outdoor SkyTerrace, SkyPod Levels). EdgeWalk operates seasonally from spring to late fall, 7 days a week, and hours of operation fluctuate depending on daylight.

I had a friend visiting from the UK with her 18 year old twins, so of course I booked the Edge Walk for first thing in the morning. A little concerned as there seemed to be a bit of early morning mist and I was worried about visibility. However, by the time we got up there, it was a glorious... More

I found the walk to be something different and an interesting way to look at the city. But If your looking for an adrenaline rush I don't feel it fit that for me. And it's expensive but def one of a kind experience.

I did the edge walk solo, it was a very fun time and I had a fun group. First you check in at a desk outside of the gear room, and sign off on a waiver. Then you go into a room and suit up. You are given a locker to stick valuables in. Those with long hair are required... More

The Edge Walk was an awesome experience, and I would highly recommend it to anybody considering it. I'm not scared of heights, but one person in our group was, and you can do as much or as little as you're comfortable with. The view was amazing and leaning over the edge was exhilarating! You're out on the edge for about... More

Fantastic experience. A little expensive but worth it especially if you have good weather. We had a sunny clear day where we could see everything.

The staff were amazing at putting you at ease,and I was made to feel so safe and that the tower would have fell down before I would have fell off it. The guide Katie was amazing and supportive when i was scared.highly recommend it. Great way to see Toronto.

Picked a perfect fall day - visibility was >75 km (we could see Niagara Falls clearly) - for our walk - birthday present for my wife. Our guide, Justin was great - his banter was worth the trip alone. The whole organization is extremely professional with safety being paramount - at no time was there any doubt about the safety...

Dare to step out to see our beautiful Toronto from 354 meters above street level!!! No one wants to miss the CN tower! So why not take the opportunity to walk aropund on a "sidewalk" on top of the sky pod. The view of Lake Ontario to the south and the city to the north is breathtaking. Yes, it takes... More

If you are searching for the ultimate thrill, this ranks right up there with sky diving, buggy jumping, and rappelling. And it is reasonably priced for what you get IMHO. Above all, these guys focus on safety, safety, and safety. So if you do what they say, and trust the equipment, you'll be fine. And the guides provide a fantastic... More

Neighbourhood Profile
Downtown West
Downtown West is home to Toronto's gorgeous Inner Harbor, and is a must-visit for lovers of art and the outdoors. The area's rich cultural heritage is celebrated by a number of monuments and museums, giving the neighborhood a mature feel. As a premier destination for modern art, people here stroll through the cool contemporary pieces at the Power Plant, enjoy the outdoor installations along Queen's Quay and Canoe Landing, and picnic among the zany designs of the Toronto Music Garden. The waterfront itself is often suffused with bikers and joggers, and the harbor is always packed with classic ships with masts raised. The vintage boats and ferries to the Toronto Islands make for a charming contrast against Downtown West's backdrop of skyscrapers, condos, and food trucks serving up hot, fresh fare to locals on the go.
