EdgeWalk is the "World's Highest External Walk on a Building"...

EdgeWalk is the "World's Highest External Walk on a Building" (Guinness World Record), a full circle hands-free walk on a 5 ft (1.5 m) wide ledge encircling the top of the Tower's main pod. Visitors walk in groups of six, while attached to an overhead safety rail via a trolley and harness system. Trained EdgeWalk guides encourage participants to push their personal limits, allowing them to lean back over Toronto with nothing but air and breathtaking views of Lake Ontario beneath them. Designed with the highest international safety and security standards in mind, EdgeWalk runs 1.5 hours, with the outdoor walk lasting approximately 30 minutes. Tickets include a keepsake video, photos and certificate of achievement. Participants also receive a CN Tower re-admission General Admission ticket + SkyPod (includes access to LookOut, Glass Floor/outdoor SkyTerrace, SkyPod Levels). EdgeWalk operates seasonally from spring to late fall, 7 days a week, and hours of operation fluctuate depending on daylight.

I walked the Edge overlooking Toronto on the second day it opened with my 20 year old son - who gave it to me as a Fathers Day gift ... knowing it would make it hard for me to back out. It's like seeing the city from the top of a mountain! Once I saw him confidently hanging over the... More

The leaders were very helpful and encouraging. The city looks very different from the Edge Walk. The lake looks endless and the movement of the city from way up in the air seems even busier than when you are stuck in the traffic. It was so much fun!

A fantastic view of Toronto from an exciting position. A shot of vodka after the walk was necessary for me to unwind. Will certainly do it again.

This was an amazing experience. I took visitors from Finland who were in Toronto at the time and they were also in awe. Safety is the number one priority. The view and exhilarating feeling are unsurpassed. A must do when in Toronto

This is a great thing to do. Fantastic views. Knowledgable guide. If the guide had been more lenient and taken more photos as requested I would have rated 5 instead of 4. Worth doing though, once in a life time experience.

Amazing views. Amazing staff and crew. Safety wise, there's nothing to worry about, you're checked about 5 times before going out. Great knowledge from the guides too. Weather was perfect too. Yes it is pricey. But for me it was worth it. Yes it can be cold - so wrap up warm Yes the guides may ask you to do... More

Staying in Downtown West

Neighbourhood Profile
Downtown West
Downtown West is home to Toronto's gorgeous Inner Harbor, and is a must-visit for lovers of art and the outdoors. The area's rich cultural heritage is celebrated by a number of monuments and museums, giving the neighborhood a mature feel. As a premier destination for modern art, people here stroll through the cool contemporary pieces at the Power Plant, enjoy the outdoor installations along Queen's Quay and Canoe Landing, and picnic among the zany designs of the Toronto Music Garden. The waterfront itself is often suffused with bikers and joggers, and the harbor is always packed with classic ships with masts raised. The vintage boats and ferries to the Toronto Islands make for a charming contrast against Downtown West's backdrop of skyscrapers, condos, and food trucks serving up hot, fresh fare to locals on the go. The area has a peaceful energy, and is popular with tourists and Torontonians alike.
