The soothing roar is a favourite among visitors, instilling a sense of peace and calm as you enjoy the crashing waves and admire the 410-million-year-old rock that makes up the Niagara Gorge.

Along the way, you’ll also be able to stop at various viewing platforms to get even closer to nature’s powerful roar. Gaze at the incredible scenery of the Whirlpool Rapids, where water flows at amazing speeds of up to 48km/hr. Don’t forget to bring your camera—the views here simply can’t be missed!
