What will you see at Grand Canyon West and Skywalk?


Your Grand Canyon West tickets give you access to two of the top panoramic overlooks in the region.

Guano Point is the jumping-off spot for several scenic hikes and boasts spectacular 360-degree views over the canyon. A short way along the trail takes you to the remains of the historical 1957 aerial tramway. Once used by workers to mine the nearby guano cave, today the ghostly site makes for eye-catching camera fodder.

Eagle Point is home to the Indian Village, where you can learn about Native American culture through self-led tours and a dance performance. There are traditional houses and sweat lodges to discover, as well as some pretty awesome views. Don’t leave without browsing the handicraft market for authentic souvenirs. Eagle Point is also where you find the Grand Canyon Skywalk.


A highlight of any visit to the Grand Canyon is the Skywalk, which sits 4,000 feet above the gorge. Your Grand Canyon Skywalk tickets allow you to cross the famous suspension bridge, which is made of glass and extends 70 feet out from the cliffs. Stepping onto the walkway can be daunting, but don’t worry, the bridge is strong enough to hold 70 jumbo jets, so you’ll be just fine!
