DÉTAILS

  • 2.5 heures

Experience the thrill of walking high above the Reversing Falls Rapids at the new Skywalk in Saint John! You will be suspended 120 feet above the water on the Skywalk, made using the most advanced technology in glass and steel, which offers an unparalleled view of this natural wonder.


When you arrive onsite at the Skywalk, there is so much to see and do! Be brave and take a walk on the glass Skywalk, suspended 24 feet past the rock cliff’s edge over the Reversing Falls Rapids! Take in a short film that explains the tides in the Bay of Fundy, and how the unique Reversing Falls Rapids are created when the force of the Bay of Fundy collides with the mighty St. John River, forcing the river to reverse direction and flow backwards twice each day! The Skywalk offers an incredible vantage point to take a thrilling walk over the Reversing Falls Rapids!


Enroute to the Skywalk with your local guide, you tour begins by exploring Saint John’s highlights, including the colorful streets of Saint John’s historic uptown, a short walk along the water’s edge on Harbour Passage, and the breathtaking view from Fort Howe.


Stop for a photo at Fallsview Park, where the mighty St. John River meets the powerful tides of the Bay of Fundy, thus creating this unique phenomenon. Tides in the Bay of Fundy rise-and-fall up to 50 feet each day! Fallsview Park, one of the geosites in Stonehammer UNESCO Global Geopark, will give you a look at the Reversing Falls Rapids from the lowest point on land, before you make your way to the highest and most exciting lookout at the Skywalk. The rocks at the Reversing Falls Rapids exhibit one of the most interesting stories in the Stonehammer Geopark. Here you can see where two continents collided and view the exposed rock ranging from 50 million to 1 billion years old.


Need to Know:

Note: Although rare, severe weather can affect the availability of the Skywalk. Children must be able to walk on their own on the glass Skywalk.
