Located 35 minutes north of Victoria, British Columbia, Malahat SkyWalk is officially open as the newest year-round outdoor experience on Vancouver Island, providing the ‘ultimate natural high.’
Malahat SkyWalk immerses visitors in nature as they embark along a 600 m (1,968 ft) elevated, wooden walkway rising 20 m (65 ft) through an arbutus and Douglas fir forest. Guests then ascend a circular ramp gently rising to the top of a 10-storey, architecturally-inspiring spiral tower lookout – the first of its kind in B.C.
At the top of the tower, guests are 250 m (820 ft) above sea level and enjoy 360-degree views of two countries, including islands, inlets, fjords, forests and mountains in B.C. and Washington State. Also at the top, daring guests can walk on an adventure net suspended partially across the centre of the tower for another breathtaking perspective.
On the descent, guests can choose to retrace their steps or take an exhilarating ride down a 20 m (65 ft) spiral slide. Available to everyone over five years of age or minimum 107 cm (42 in) tall, guests can ride as many times as they like.
Malahat SkyWalk is located on the traditional territory of the Malahat Nation and their Indigenous stories are embedded in the visitor experience. Guests will find a deeper connection to nature learning about the trees, birds, animals and marine life of this coastal region unique to this area.
