EdgeWalk at CN Tower
For all you daredevils out there, the CN Tower EdgeWalk is a great opportunity to get the adrenaline flowing. It is known as the world’s highest full-circle hands-free walk. The entire experience is for 1.5 hours with the outdoor walk going on for about 30 minutes. The walk takes place in groups of six. Our Editorial Director tried it out on a recent adventure day with CLIF bars, and hasn’t stopped raving about it since. We highly recommend it!
