Skywalk Grand Canyon Tour

The Grand Canyon Skywalk
While in Las Vegas, take a FUN Day Trip to the Grand Canyon and visit its newest attraction — the Skywalk. Located at Grand Canyon West Rim on the Hualapai Indian Reservation, the Skywalk opened to the public on March 28, 2007.

Glass Skywalk
Step out onto a glass-floored, 70-foot long, open-air Skywalk observation deck that juts out 4,000 feet above the canyon floor and the Colorado River.

Mountains

Before venturing out from the canyon's rim onto the transparent U-shaped 3-inch-thick glass platform, visitors must slip on special non-scuff, non-slip booties.

Built to withstand hurricanes and earthquakes, the Skywalk is sure to become one of the most FUN and visited attractions in Arizona.
