Experience Niagara Falls

Three waterfalls bridge the international border between Canada’s Ontario province and New York state, forming the southern end of the Niagara Gorge. This is the roar of nature, adventure at its fullest.

Water Action

Take a Niagara Hornblower Cruise or cruise via Maid of the Mist close to the bottom of the mighty Niagara Falls and watch the wall of thundering water. Ponchos provided!

Keep the thrills going on another wet visit as you descend an elevator to go through a narrow tunnel—Journey Behind the Falls.

Get close up via a boardwalk. White Water Walk, along the Great Gorge, showcases Class 6 whirlpool rapids in the raging river.

Insider tip: Prepare to get wet (and pack accordingly) for any of the boat adventures!

Want a bird’s-eye view of the falls? Go to the top of Skylon Tower, 775 feet above the falls. There are two fine dining restaurants at the top, a 3D movie theatre, and a Family Fun Centre.

Niagara Gorge Discovery Center is a gateway into short hikes around the falls. Or try Niagara Glen Nature Centre to hike along the Niagara River.

Niagara Adventure Theater is a 45-minute production about settlers, explorers, and the story behind the thundering falls—all within feet of American Falls, Bridal Veil Falls, and the Horseshoe Falls.

Drive over the Rainbow Bridge, an arch bridge across the Niagara River gorge.

DID YOU KNOW: The Niagara River, along with the Great Lakes Basin, is a legacy of the last Ice Age. 18,000 years ago?

Cycling is a blast here. Take the route along the 56 km path, Niagara River Recreation Trail, connecting Fort Erie to Niagara-on-the-Lake. The route may be started anywhere in the park.

Fancy a wine tour and tastings in Niagara Falls? Two popular opportunities are Winery Tours of Niagara and Discovery Tours Unlimited.

Visit Niagara Parks Butterfly Conservancy for a walk through a rainforest setting, viewing over 2000 butterflies.

Did you know: The Niagara River supplies the water for the falls,
and its dissolved minerals and limestone create the green color you see?
