You can basically get the same view from the road minus the glass floor. Way too crowded. It's pretty cool though considering the valley is approximately 280m below your feet. I'm afraid of heights yet this is a way for me to concur my fear...More

Long concrete walk out to the glass bottom skywalk. If you get out there and don't feel comfortable with the glass floor you can continue on concrete walk. The view is nowhere near as spectacular as the glacier but it seems to be a must...More

Wouldn’t have done this if I had realized the skywalk doesn’t actually overlook a glacier. The structure itself is super impressive engineering wise, but that’s about it. Not that cool for the money, I’d say skip it.More
