The icefields may be what boosted Jasper to an international destiation, and the skywalk gives people a new way to appreciate them.
While the Rocky Mountains have been around for millions of years, there are still new ways to take a look at them. The skywalk, which opened in 2014, is one of those new ways.
Walking out onto the glass sidewalk hundreds of meters above a canyon bottom can be a bit of a rush, and that can be translated into some amazing shots.
Infact, the shots of the structure are pretty impessive. The metal framwork hangs people out over the edge, with transparent glass all around it, giving a view in every. Single. Direction.
About an hour-and-a-half south of Jasper, this is one of the many sights between Jasper and Banff. Basically the only ways to reach it are by car or tourbus.
For adults it’s $34 to go out on it.
It’s only 27 on TripAdvisor’s list for the region, which isn’t great. There’s a lot of complaints about the cost of the experience not meeting the expectations, and that’s fair, but I think for anyone looking for an interesting shot of archetecture in the wild, this meets the mark. The official site is here, and the Great Canadian Bucket List has it too, here.
