The views from this skywalk are incredible, and it is absolutely worth doing if you are already doing the glacier trip. Some interesting information about the area (wildlife, geology, etc.) also included around the skywalk.

Part of our tour allowed us to walk on the Skywalk. Even for someone slightly afraid of heights, it was awesome to see the scenery and walk on a glass floor.More

If you're not skittish about heights, you can walk out on to a glass bottomed vista to look almost 1000 feet below!

A glass floor and glass sides 300m up the mountain and 30m out from the mountain. Quite exhilarating and manageable even for those not keen on heights.

The walk to the skywalk is pleasant. If you suffer from vertigo you can bypass the walk with the glass floor and view the scenery from afar.
