Toronto’s Hidden Gems part 2

Okay not so much hidden as unique and a world first – how about walking full -circle hands- free around the CN Towers main pod, 356m/1168ft above the ground.
Attatched to an overhead safety rail, walk out with a small group of six others and see Toronto from a different angle – literally. Led by trained guides, thrill seekers will be “encouraged” to push their personal limits during the walk by leaning back off the tower into the sky above Toronto’s impressive downtown city core.
$175 for 1.5 hours including 30 minutes of adrenaline fuelled “sightseeing” on the Edgewalk

If yoga doesn’t appeal, how about a spot of life drawing – with a model, in one of the AGO’s public galleries?
