2. You can rise above it all
Up for an adventure?
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.
Enjoy the sights as you walk across the TreeWalk, taking in the incredible views of the peninsula.
Walking across the TreeWalk makes you feel as if you are walking in the middle of the tree tops, and the 600m of elevated wooden walkway gives you a different perspective of walking in the woods.
There are interpretative signs along the walkway, providing information on the type of animals and trees that guests can find.
Once you reach the top of the 10-storey architecturally-inspiring Spiral Tower, the brave can walk across the sturdy, 84 square meter ‘Adventure Net’ offering a full view of what’s below your feet.
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!
