Grand Canyon Skywalk
Most tours to the Grand Canyon Skywalk begin in Las Vegas, where travelers head east to the Arizona desert by road, plane, or helicopter. A Skywalk ticket can be combined with a Hoover Dam trip or a scenic helicopter tour over the canyon, while other options include visits with Hualapai tribe members or a boat ride up the Colorado River. Those short on time can opt for a skip-the-line experience.

Things to Know Before You Go
The Skywalk is a must-visit for daredevils in Las Vegas.
No purses, backpacks, cell phones, or cameras are allowed on the Skywalk; you can purchase photos from Grand Canyon West’s professional photographers.
Outside food and drink are not permitted within Grand Canyon West or on the Skywalk.
Tours to the Skywalk can last upwards of nine hours depending on the option chosen.
The Skywalk is wheelchair accessible, but some of the uneven terrain nearby may not be.
How to Get There
Because the Grand Canyon Skywalk is a part of Grand Canyon West—a remote and rugged section of canyon managed by the Hualapai—entry to the bridge can only be purchased as part of a package excursion. While many visitors come on a guided tour, it’s also possible to drive yourself to Grand Canyon West, then take the hop-on hop-off shuttle to the Skywalk and other attractions.
When to Get There
Daytime temperatures at the Grand Canyon hover at or above 85°F (30°C) in summer, making fall and spring much more appealing times to visit. The glass bridge tends to be busiest around midday, so plan to arrive in the morning or later in the afternoon to ensure you have more elbow room.
Other Activities at Grand Canyon West
The Grand Canyon West complex lies outside the national park and is operated by the Hualapai tribe. In addition to the Skywalk, visitors can explore an American Indian village at Eagle Point, cruise along the Colorado River, hike to the ruins of an old guano mine, or even rent a rustic cabin at Hualapai Ranch.
