Holding the Guinness World Record for the “Highest External Walk on a Building”, EdgeWalk encircles the building a dizzy 356 metres above the ground. That’s 116 storeys!Thousands of thrill seekers from across the globe flock to this bucket-list attraction every year to strap on the safety cable and take the ultimate selfie, leaning backwards over the city with nothing but air and heart-stopping views of Lake Ontario below.

The 1.5 metre-wide ledge surrounding the top of the CN Tower is considered one of the world’s greatest man-made wonders and a ‘must-do’ Toronto tourist attraction.
