Located in the heart of the Canadian Rockies, the 'Glacier Skywalk' is an observation deck accessible by presenting a breathtaking panoramic view of the valley Sunwapta.

The bridge will be open to the public from May 2014, three years after the original designs were submitted for the ambitious project.

The structure is made of glass, the curved floor protrudes about 30 meters from the edge of the mountain encouraging guests to discover a new vision. The scheme is envisioned as an extension of the surrounding landscape. The use of steel, glass and wood evoke the natural environment, while the absence of toxic paints and other coatings ensures that the project has minimal environmental impact.
