Looking to create some new traditions this year? Take your holidays to new heights with the Malahat SkyWalk, just 35 minutes from downtown Victoria.
Since its grand opening in July, the Malahat SkyWalk has welcomed thousands of visitors, eager to take in the incredible views.
Now, the popular attraction has added some exciting holiday additions so you can celebrate the season with them in style.
Throughout the month of December, Malahat SkyWalk will be celebrating the season with their Holiday Magic event. It’s even open on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day!
In the meantime, here are 5 ways to experience the magic of the Malahat SkyWalk this holiday season:
Experience the TreeWalk and lookout
If you haven’t experienced the Malahat SkyWalk before, you’re in for a treat!
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.
Once you reach the top of the Spiral Tower, 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.
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!
The Claus Family Bakery
The Claus family will be serving up delicious Christmas cookies for those with a sweet tooth. Hot chocolate will also be available to keep your hands warm.
Create even more holiday magic at the Malahat SkyWalk by stopping by Santa’s Workshop where you can do a fun craft or colouring project to take home!
Malahat SkyWalk Firepit
Once you have experienced the heights and views of the Malahat SkyWalk, gather your friends and family and cozy up next to the firepit. Take in the scents of the arbutus forest as you listen to the crackle of the relaxing fire.
The firepit will be located at the base of the Spiral Tower next to Santa’s Workshop.
