The Skyewalk is very nicely laid out and has a lot of interesting information. I imagined the view to be a bit more spectacular, but maybe it was just the weather, because it was cloudy. It's very well organized, you can stay as long as you like and why don't you often have a given time slot.

My family thought this was amazing. I am very scared of heights so if took me a little time before I could even walk out. Even once I started, I was terrified but by the time I was half way around, I could look down and actually let go of the railing and start taking pictures. The view is spectacular, both above and below the glass. We all thought that it was definitely worth the experience.

The Icefields were great! The skywalk was a little underwhelming but we loved when we got back to the centre and were able to walk almost to the glacier. We saw people take the heavy duty truck to go on the glacier but I don’t think that would be worth it for the price. Just park in the lot and walk up toward the glacier. Such beautiful views!
