The rim of the Grand Canyon is 70 feet behind you. The other side of it is 3 miles in front of you. Then you dare to look down and see ………… nothing — nothing but 2, feet of air between you and the bottom of the Grand Canyon. Until recently, a sensation like this could only be experienced in dreams.
Built in , the Skywalk gives you the feeling you are walking on air. A tour package must be purchased first in order to add any options such as the Skywalk, helicopter and boat rides, horseback rides and more. It can also be accessed via the Grand Canyon West Airport. It can be an adventure to get there, and it's not cheap. Still, it's a one-of-a-kind way to experience the country's most famous natural wonder.
While many were scared, I danced around the Skywalk! You can too. However, you can't take your camera or belongings, free lockers are available. They claim these things could be dropped on the glass or in the canyon.
Only a two hour drive from Las Vegas, Laughlin, and Lake Havasu, the West Rim provides guests with an opportunity to experience the awe-inspiring canyon from many different perspectives. Walk the glass panels on the Skywalk, soar over the canyon in a helicopter or on a zip line, float down the river on a boat, and take in the epic views at Guano Point and Eagle Point. Spend a night or two in one of our cabins at the Hualapai Ranch.
