Formed by the melt water from the Wisconsin Glacier over 12,000 years ago, Niagara Falls flows majestically at the crossroads of the United States and Ontario, Canada.
On the Ontario side, the Horseshoe Falls span a distance of nearly 0.8 kilometres (0.5 miles), stand 17 storeys high and push 155 million litres (34 million gallons) of water per minute over the brink into the raging Niagara River below.
Witness this wonder from every angle! Feel the mist on your face as majestic waterfalls thunder down from incredible heights. Wander alongside the falls on the White Water Walk or Journey Behind the Falls. Take in the whole dramatic vista from the Skylon Tower or get a bird's-eye view from above with Niagara Helicopters.
Stay for the Niagara Falls Illumination at night when the falls are lit up by dazzling lights, colours and exploding fireworks.
