Located 35 minutes north of Victoria, near the Malahat Summit, the Malahat Skywalk is an accessible 650 metre treetop walk through beautiful arbutus forest leading to a spectacular gentle spiral ramp that takes you up 40 metres to a sightseeing lookout offering views of Finlayson Arm and the distant Coast Mountains. It will provide a stunning new perspective on beautiful southern Vancouver Island.
All of the elements of the Malahat Skywalk are carefully designed to create an architecturally stunning sightseeing and cultural attraction overlooking Finlayson Arm. The unique setting on the traditional territory of the Malahat Nation offers opportunities for local storytelling, cultural celebration and natural interpretive education.
Project features include:
- Safe one-way entry and exit off the Malahat Highway
- Ample parking for both cars and buses
- Welcome Centre for ticket and retail sales, bathrooms, café and kids’ playground
- 650m elevated, and accessible, tree walk with interpretive features incorporated into the experience
- 40m high lookout with an accessible spiral ramp from bottom to the top
- Interpretive nature walk will lead guests back from the lookout to the parking area.
- Picnic area surrounding the natural pond adjacent to the Welcome Centre
The Malahat Skywalk project has begun and we look forward to make a positive impact on the community and help to diversify the economy. We are committed to an open, collaborative process. For updates on construction, job opportunities or general information continue to monitor this website.
