EdgeWalk in Toronto

September 2, 2017

Ready for an urban adventure? Say no more. Hop on a bus, plane, train, or walk on over to the CN tower. From wherever you are, find your way to the top of the world. Watch as we walk the top of the CN Tower at 356 meters/1168 feet above ground during a CN Tower Edge Walk tour in Toronto, Canada. In 2011, it was awarded the Guinness World Record for “Highest External Walk on a Building”.

Don’t worry, you’ll be securely strapped in, without compromising your mobility as you move around. They’ll have you doing some heart stopping maneuvers such as leaning forwards and backwards right on the edge, while getting a breathtaking barrierless bird’s eye view of downtown Toronto. The activity will take you around in a full circle for about 30 minutes. At the end, you’ll be able to collect a keepsake video, photos and certificate, all of which are included in the purchase price.

How did I feel while up there? While it didn’t show, I was quite scared when I first walked out. The height became all too real and for a second I wanted to turn back. But that feeling quickly went away as I remembered why I was up there in the first place: to live life, conquer my fears and experience something new. I first heard about this when a former classmate posted a photo of her at the top of the CN tower a few years back. It never left my mind, but the idea of me going up there myself one day remained just that, an idea… a dream. Finally, in 2015, I thought to myself, “What’s holding me back?” and I realized that the only one standing in my way was myself. So I made my arrangements, booked my ticket and got up there and I don’t regret it one bit. In fact, I’d love to do it again!

Tip: For ladies and fellas with long hair, you’ll need to have it in a ponytail so don’t forget your hair elastics.

    I considered doing that in Toronto but I was too scared haha – maybe next time I will be a little less afraid and I will go for it!

      You should! I won’t lie though, it feels scary, yet there’s nothing to fear.
