Grand Canyon Skywalk

Grand Canyon Skywalk is a horseshoe shaped steel frame with a glass floor and sides that overhangs 70 feet (21 m) from the Grand Canyon's rim looking through down 4,000 feet to the bottom of the canyon. The Skywalk, also known as the "Glass Bridge" is the most famous attraction at Grand Canyon West, but there are other points of interest and unique canyon views as well. The Skywalk is most easily accessed through Kingman or Las Vegas as opposed to the more commonly visited South Rim accessed through Williams or Tusayan, AZ. The Grand Canyon Skywalk is managed by the Hualapai Tribe and located on tribal lands, consisting of just less than 1,000,000 acres. The tribe has about 2,300 members with Peach Springs on Highway 66 being the location of the tribal headquarters. The tribe operates a hotel, restaurant, and gift shop in Peach Springs.

Visitors are not permitted to drive themselves to the Grand Canyon Skywalk. A "tour package" offering everything from basic transportation to the Skywalk including photos with tribe members, to adding a river rafting or helicopter ride when visiting the Skywalk must be purchased in order to get to this part of the Grand Canyon. A minimum tour package is $49 + tax with an additional $25 admission fee to walk the Skywalk itself, making it about $80 per person to interact with this attraction.

We recommend purchasing your tour package through one of the tour companies below. Many of the recommended tour companies upgrade the quality of transportation, provide knowledgeable guides, lunch, and even include other perks and types of tours at a reasonable price.
