The bridge is cool and worth the drive (assume in injunction ice field tour). Nice little walk with some educational stuff and nice views. The bridge itself is cool. Some marvel of engineering I suppose, looking down is pretty neat.More

I enjoyed the architectural features and the explanations on the building process more than actually walking on the bridge. It is indeed very well designed. I had thought we could walk over a part of the glacier. Not really. You walk over a canyon close...More

Hello. Once you have completed your Ice Explorer tour, a shuttle bus will take you directly to the Skywalk. No need to book a separate time as we will have already arranged transport. Hope this helps. Matthew

Hello Imran. Jasper National Park does not allow any drones flying within its borders. Because of this, we strong discourage any drone activity near or on the Skywalk. Hope this helps.
