Where stories begin
Discover one of the world's greatest natural wonders, Niagara Falls. Take in the plunging falls as the sheer volume of water falls into the gorge below.
Certainly one of the world’s most famous waterfalls, Niagara falls straddles the international border between Canada and the United States. The site is actually made up of three falls; Horseshoe Falls, American Falls and Bridal Veil Falls. Between them, almost 2500 cubic meters of water pours around 50 meters into the lakes below – that’s almost 500 swimming pools’ worth!Read more
Although two of the three falls are on the United States side, Canada is home to the largest of the three, with approximately 90% of the Niagara River flowing over Horseshoe Falls. Spend a fascinating visit taking in the natural wonder – you can decide whether to simply look and explore or to get stuck into the outdoor activities available. Venture right up to the foot of the falls on a boat cruise (waterproof ponchos are given out as you don’t get wet when you get closer to the waterfall). Take a helicopter ride above the tumult. For a sweeping birds eye view over the falls and the Niagara River. Round off your visit with lunch from the viewpoint of an overlooking restaurant.
