The Malahat Skywalk On Vancouver Island – British Columbia

There’s a new major tourist attraction on 🌲 Vancouver Island in British Columbia – 🍁 Canada and it’s called the – Malahat Skywalk.

The Malahat SkyWalk is a 600-metre gentle 5% circular walkway that slowly leads to the top viewing deck, offering incredible 360 degree scenic views of the Finlayson Arm, Saanich Peninsula, Mount Baker and the beautiful surrounding Coast Mountains.

Malahat Skywalk – Location

Malahat Skywalk Entrance
This astounding seventeen million dollar attraction is situated on the Malahat First Nation territory and was constructed in conjunction with private investors.

A proactive joint venture with the end result becoming an …

“Environmentally Sound, Socially Proactive And Honour Of The Lands, Its People And Culture.”

Malahat Skywalk Highway Sign

Access from the 🌷 City of Victoria is 33 kilometers, or about 35 minutes driving time. as you can’t access the attraction directly off the 🛣 highway heading south.

If you are traveling from the north, at this time you will have to drive past the main entrance to a marked U-Turn point, located at the popular – 🏘 Malahat Chalet.

Hopefully this will be upgraded in the future, as you have to drive 4 kilometers to the U-Turn. So it’s highly recommended to plan your visit on your way up the island, instead of returning at this time.

Be sure to check out my 🗺 Google Map at the bottom of this post, for more detailed directions to the Skywalk.
