Travel two-and-a-half hours to walk among the clouds at the Grand Canyon Skywalk.
See breathtaking sights and experience the Grand Canyon like never before.
Located at Grand Canyon West on the Hualapai Indian Reservation, the Grand
Canyon Skywalk opened to the public on March 28th, 2007. The structure,
consisting of a U-shaped cantilevered glass walk jutting 70 feet past the rim of the
Grand Canyon, was originally envisioned by Las Vegas businessman David Jin, while
taking part in a Grand Canyon tour in 1996. With the help of Las Vegas design firm
Lochsa Engineering, Jin’s creation is sturdy enough to hold the weight of a dozen
fully loaded 747’s, and strong enough to withstand winds up to 100 mph. Astronaut Buzz Aldrin led the first walkers on the Grand Canyon Glass Skywalk in a private ceremony on March 20th, 2007.
Located at Eagle Point where the natural rock formation of an Eagle is prominently in view for all to see, this glass
horseshoe-shaped bridge enables visitors to walk beyond the canyon walls at Grand Canyon West, suspending
them 4,000 feet above the riverbed and providing an unparalleled view of this natural wonder.
PRICE INCLUDES: Deluxe motor coach transportation; professional tour guide; admission to Skywalk, lunch;
bottled water on coach; all gratuities; all applicable taxes.
NOTE: Personal belongings, including cameras are not allowed on the bridge. To protect from dropping any
items into the canyon or onto the glass, you will be asked to store your items in the provided lockers. Photos of
the Skywalk may be taken from the side with personal cameras. Professional photos of you on the bridge are
available for purchase after your walk. Children must be able to walk on their own on the glass bridge.
