Niagara Falls, Ontario

The locals are fiercely proud of their contribution to one of the world's greatest natural spectacles, and for good reason. A visit to Niagara will leave you in no doubt as to the power and majesty of these incredible waterfalls.
Overview

Niagara Falls Tours

Niagara Falls ToursThere can't be many more magnificent examples of nature's strength and beauty other than Niagara Falls and if you find yourself in eastern Canada then this will undoubtedly provide the backbone to many a good slide show upon your return home.

The iconic setting is actually a combination of three separate waterfalls with the largest, Horseshoe Falls, residing in Ontario whilst American and Bridal Veil lie south of the border in New York state.

Flowing with a huge expanse of water, there's no better way to experience the true power of the falls than with an up close experience on a must do Maid of the Mist Boat Tour; be ready to be impressed by the immense roar of the water and for the notorious drenching.

Niagara Falls Insider Tips

Best view points
Table Rock is undoubtedly one of the best places to observe the majesty of Niagara Falls and you'll also receive a complimentary eco-friendly poncho for your trouble. Very reasonably priced and packed-full of information and knowledgeable tour guides the welcome centre offers a lift descent to some 150 feet whereupon you'll find yourself at the mouth of an underground tunnel that leads to the back of the tumultuous Horseshoe Falls. Alternatively, if you fancy viewing from a different perspective, the White Water Walk allows you to watch whirlpools and touch the 4 million-year-old rock face.
When to go
No matter how hot it is during the summer, the mist and spray experienced on Niagara Falls tours will undoubtedly quench even the most vehement of sun's rays. That said, during July and August the crowds do tend to go up but this is with good reason and there's a fair bit of space. Any time from October onwards can see the advent of snow and many of the attractions and access routes aren't widely used during the winter period. Spring time is not at all warm but there are less crowds so pack your best fleece and brave the elements if you fancy making the pilgrimage before June.
Highlights & Activities

Niagara Falls Tour Highlights

Canadian "Horseshoe" Falls
On the Canadian border, the impressive Horseshoe Falls takes into account the vast majority of the Niagara River's flow. Canada's Table Rock Centre is an excellent venue to observe this captivating sight.
American Falls
Located fully in New York state, this is the second-largest of the falls at just over 100 feet tall and 830 feet wide. The best viewing platform to see the falls in all their glory is Luna Island, accessed upstream via a footbridge situated between American and Bridal Veil falls.
Bridal Veil Falls
The smallest of the Niagara Falls but none the less impressive, Bridal Veil is situated on the American side of the border and weighs in at just under 80 feet tall with a width of some 56 feet. Descend via lift to the Cave of the Winds and Bridal Falls.
Maid of the Mist Cruise
One way to truly say that you've experienced the might of Niagara Falls is to pass by all 3 falls aboard one of the Maid of the Mist tour boats. Don your special blue raincoat and embark from either side of the border.
