The highly anticipated Malahat Skywalk opened last week, with an incredible opening weekend which saw over 5,000 guests.
If you’ve somehow missed photos of the Skywalk on social media and everyone eagerly awaiting an announcement of a grand opening, here is what you need to know!
The Malahat Skywalk offers scenic views of Mt. Baker, Finlayson Arm, the Saanich Peninsula, and islands in two countries from a viewing platform 250 meters above sea level.
The attraction is also easily accessible, even for strollers and wheelchairs.
Once you reach the top, the brave can walk across the sturdy, 84 square meter ‘Adventure Net’ offering a full view of what’s below your feet.
Enjoy the sights as you walk across the Treewalk and nature trail, taking in the incredible views of the peninsula.
Be sure to snap a photo of yourself at the top!
At the end of your adventure, visitors have a choice of either walking back down as normal or opting to enjoy something a bit more exciting – the Skywalk includes a 20-metre Spiral Slide that gets you back down to the bottom of the Skywalk in 13 seconds!
What a rush!
