Jasper National Park | Glacier Skywalk

glacier-skywalk-jasper-national-park-canada-designboom-02 Located deep in the Canadian Rockies in the sunwapta valley, the glacier skywalk takes observation decks to the next level, all in a modern way. Allowing the observers to witness panoramic views on a curved glass floor, coming 30 meters from the cliffs edge, the structure was built right into the side of the cliff, allowing one to feel as though there apart of the beautiful landscape. glacier-skywalk-jasper-national-park-canada-designboom-01
