The Ultimate Natural High

Welcome to nature at its most majestic. The views from the lookout—250m above sea level—are spectacular. However, this adventure is for all the senses. Enjoy the scents, sounds, and textures of the coastal forest, and then picnic on local fare by the pond.

Malahat Skywalk Features

Pure Nature

BREATHE IN THE BEAUTY

Immerse yourself in pristine nature: a steep, forested mountain, high above the Salish Sea. Previously, only agile explorers could enjoy such experiences of the wild. Now, our Elevated Walkway and Skywalk make this environment easily accessible, even for strollers and wheelchairs. 

Seaview Lookout

SEE AS BIRDS DO

An Elevated Walkway winds into a spiral that rises to 250m above sea level, then fans out into a 360° viewing platform. Gaze out, and down, to truly breathtaking views of Finlayson Arm, the Saanich Peninsula, Mt. Baker, and Salt Spring Island.

Canopy Walk

WALK LIKE GIANTS

The Elevated Walkway gently inclines until you’re 20m above ground, where it meanders through the treetop canopy. Children walk with the stature of giants, level with the treetops, where birds and squirrels make their homes. Stop at interpretive viewpoints and learn about the ecosystem along the way

Arbutus Grove

SMELL THE STRAWBERRY TREES

The arbutus, or Pacific madrone, appears wonderfully exotic with its smooth chartreuse wood covered by reddish, papery bark. It grows on rocky coastlines and, in spring, bears white flowers that smell like honey. In autumn, red berries inspire its other name, the “strawberry tree.”  

Malahat Culture

SPOT THE SASQUATCH

This is the traditional territory of the Malahat Nation, who have deep knowledge of the land and its plants and animals. They welcome guests and are proud to share their art, culture, wisdom, and legends. Look closely for the elusive sasquatch.
