The Grand Canyon Skywalk takes you over the edge on the first-ever 4,000-foot high glass bridge. This attraction is located only 2 ½ hours away from Las Vegas by road and only 45 minutes by air. Grand Canyon Skywalk is part of Grand Canyon West, which is most accessible from Las Vegas. And while you're in the area, popular Skywalk trips include eagle-eye views of Lake Mead and Hoover Dam on a premier helicopter or airplane tour from Las Vegas.
The Grand Canyon Skywalk is a rare architectural accomplishment that extends 70 feet past the edge of the West Rim of the Grand Canyon. Visitors of the Grand Canyon Skywalk can walk over the western rim of the Grand Canyon on a clear, glass-floored structure built to withstand over 71 million pounds of weight, and experience the sensation of seeing the canyon fall straight away below their feet. The Skywalk was made to withstand high-winds, harsh winter weather conditions and forces of nature beyond what is typical for the area. The Skywalk is so strong it can hold the weight of 71 loaded 747 passenger planes stacked on top of one another.
This amazing structure located on the Hualapai Tribe's Grand Canyon West, is best accessed on an array of half-day and full-day tour options from Las Vegas. There are several Grand Canyon tour companies from Las Vegas that package the Skywalk with helicopter tours, airplane or ground tours, plus tours of Hoover Dam on the way to the Skywalk. Most Grand Canyon Las Vegas tour companies offer hotel pick-up and customizable add-on side trips. If you choose to visit the Skywalk without a tour company, use the hop-on-hop-off shuttle to tour Grand Canyon West's three main points of interest. We recommend upgrading your entrance package to include everything from horseback riding to Canyon floor helicopter landings to pontoon boat rides on the Colorado River.
