Grand Canyon Skywalk, Hualapai Reservation

Grand Canyon Skywalk--a transparent, horseshoe-shaped platform that extends over the edge of the Grand Canyon--is not for the faint of heart. Walk out and gaze down 1,000 m (3,500 ft) to see the Colorado River rushing below. This feat of modern engineering is part of the Hualapai Indian reservation; it was commissioned by and is owned by tribe. You must pay a fee to enter the reservation, plus an additional fee to go out on the platform. Personal items, including cameras, are not permitted on the Skywalk, but you can purchase a professional photograph of your visit from the gift shop. With our custom trip planner, Hualapai Reservation attractions like Grand Canyon Skywalk can be center stage of your vacation plans, and you can find out about other attractions like it, unlike it, near it, and miles away.

  • Rented a car and drove from Vegas... long drive in the wilderness but an adventure nonetheless. Stock up on snacks and drinks on the way. Beautiful views can be had at this location but the pricing is...  more »
  • If you’re planning on visiting the west part of the Grand Canyon, allow a lot of time. After parking, you walk quite a ways to a building where we then stood in line for 30-40 minutes. After passing t...  more »
  • Wanted to take teens for a quick day trip to the Grand Canyon from Las Vegas. Wanted to avoid the 4 hour each way drive to the GC National Park. Thought this might be the answer. Yes it was closer but...  more »

  • Great place! Definitely worth a visit. Amazing views and it's an experience walking on the glass bottom floor. Remember you can't take your phones. There are photographers there who can capture your memories. The prices for the photos are reasonable. Remember to take a hat as it can get very hot out there. Try and go early to avoid the crowds.
  • The place was truly beautiful and the views was spectacular, I couldn't convince my wife to come on the Skywalk so I really couldn't give a true review but from the fear and smiles I saw on the faces of the ones that braved their fears only makes me want to go back again. Plenty of spots here to take some out of this world pictures like the ones you see in postcards or jigsaw puzzles.
  • What a experience. This was a great trip. We went to Vegas for Spring Break and decided to take a day trip to the Grand Canyon Skywalk. There's really no way to explain how beautiful this place is. Pictures really don't do the Grand Canyon justice. If you have an opportunity to visit you won't be disappointed.
  • Fantastic experience. Prices keep going up but it's definitely a to-do list item. Not sure if I would go again. I would be more inclined to hike around or the opposite side.
  • Grand canyon is a wonder of nature. In skywalk you can see how large is the height and you can see and feel it through the glass floor. If you are lucky and there are few people you can get nice pictures but not using your camera but the one they take and sell to you (10 to 15 photos in a pen drive by 65$ or 1 printer photo by 16$). There are an Indian village where you can see how they used to live, listen them singing and dancing, buy souvenirs. It is an expensive trip but it is worth it.
