The Wine Trolley tour during fall in Niagara-on-the-Lake

It’s harvest season at Niagara’s top wineries, and there’s plenty to sip on and savour this year. Pay a visit to one of the top-tier vineyards in the area, or hop on our Wine Trolley Tour for a sampling of several regional wines!

For a personalized tasting with a touch of Halloween fun, check out The Hare Wine Co.’s Scare At the Hare package, where you’ll sample three of their premium wines and festive treats. Alternatively, relish the last days of warm weather and enjoy hand-made, locally produced ice cream and Icewine at Château des Charmes. Finally, if you’re looking for a memorable tour through stunning vineyards with spectacular views of Lake Ontario, check out Cave Spring Vineyard, where you’ll sip on their premium wines and enjoy a picnic lunch upon your return.

Stroll Through Autumn’s Splendour

The Niagara Region is an avid hiker’s dream destination! Take in the rugged beauty of the Bruce Trail, which follows the Niagara Escarpment from Queenston all the way up to Tobermory (over 900 kilometres!). Short Hills Provincial Park is another great option for hiking, with seven trails of varying difficulty to choose from, so people of all abilities can enjoy a stroll through its rich autumn landscape. Don’t miss the chance to visit the magnificent Swayze Falls via the Paleozoic Path, which is accessible for wheelchairs and strollers, making it ideal for afternoon walks with the family.

The Swayze Falls is one of many waterfalls in the area, and if you just can’t get enough of viewing these natural wonders, you can also check out the Ball’s Falls Conservation Area, where its two waterfalls are a popular attraction. Along with natural beauty, you’ll also find the historic home of the Ball family and learn more about Niagara’s fascinating past.
