5 Alternative Ways to See Niagara Falls

Niagara Falls is one of the most impressive waterfalls in the world. Fortunately, the Falls are free to visit and can be seen on land. If you are looking to take your experience up a notch, however, here are five alternative ways to view the Falls.

Wildplay Zipline

View the Falls from above and get a hit of adrenaline while you are at it with the Wildplay Zipline. Zooming through the sky on a zipline above the gushing water is something you won’t forget.

Skylon Tower

If you are less of a thrill seeker and still want to view the falls from above, you can get a great view from the Skylon Tower.

Sight See Helicopter Tours

Get the ultimate view from above with a private helicopter tour. Due to Covid-19, all tours are private right now but the price is the same.

Journey Behind the Falls

Descend 125 ft by elevator to gain access to an observation deck directly behind the falls. Witness 2,800 cubic meters of water traveling at 65 km per hour.

The Falls by Boat

Get up close to the Falls by taking a boat ride with Zoom Tours. It’s the best and most cost-efficient way to get up close to the thundering water from low down.

The mighty Falls of the Niagara, oh boy, what a sight ! 🤩 Niagara offers a different experience in both the summer and winter – both unique in its own way ! Having done both – we however love the summer experience! 🌞 Somethings that you should definitely know when visiting the falls : ✨ If travelling by your own vehicle – it’s about 1.5 hours drive from Toronto ! But if you plan on taking the @gotransit don’t forget to snag their Weekend go train pass to the falls for which they have a sweet deal going on! ✨if you’re looking to have an action packed day like us – we highly recommend getting the Niagara Adventure pass – it’s a steal to do 3 fun activities – Aerocar + journey beyond the falls + white water walk!! ✨There are beautiful views everywhere – so many vantage points ! Best discovered on foot ! We skipped the Wego busses in a lot of places so we could snag some beautiful shots! ✨Being summer , it can get very very crowded and super hot too – it’s best to visit on a weekday and dress in a comfortable attire! ✨@niagaracruises – The Hornblower – do not miss this brilliant experience to witness the falls up close and personal ! It’s a surreal experience! P.S: Be prepared to get soaked! We had an amazing time and can’t wait to experience this next summer with our friends and family. #niagarafalls #ontario #explorecanada #canada #cruise #niagara #canada🇨🇦 #experience #vacation #weekend #toronto #inthemist #niagaracruises #journeybehindthefalls #travel #travelgram #travelphotography #instagood #instadaily #lovetdot #torontoculture #curiocitytoronto #blogto #exploreniagara
