We thought that there was no way to make the Banff-Jasper Park­way bet­ter. We were wrong.

The glass-floor ob­ser­va­tion plat­form that juts out 280 me­tres above the Sun­wapta Val­ley may not be for the faint of heart, but the views of the snow-capped Rock­ies and the crys­talline Columbia Ice­field be­low are worth fight­ing any acro­pho­bic in­cli­na­tions for. The Sturgess Ar­chi­tec­ture-de­signed Glacier Sky­walk (win­ner of a Fu­ture Projects award at the 2011 World Ar­chi­tec­ture Fes­ti­val) takes you down a cliff-edge walk­way packed with in­ter­ac­tive ecol­ogy ex­hibits to this, the grand fi­nale: a breath­tak­ing (if ver­tigo-in­duc­ing) vista.
