Journey Behind the Falls – At the brink of the Canadian Horseshoe Niagara Falls


The sound is like thunder; the sight is awe-inspiring! Take a journey deep below and behind the heart of Niagara, and stand in the mist where the mighty Horseshoe Falls tumbles from 13 storeys above! At Journey Behind the Falls, you’ll experience the awesome spectacle of one-fifth of the world’s fresh water crashing down to the basin below. During summer daylight hours, over 2,800 cubic meters of water thunders over the brink every second, traveling 65 kilometers per hour!

Located at the brink of the Canadian Horseshoe Falls, in the Table Rock Welcome Centre.

Elevators descend 150 feet through bedrock to tunnels leading to the Cataract Portal and the Great Falls Portal, one third of the way behind the massive sheet of water.
Walk on to the Upper and Lower Observation Decks at the very foot of the Falls.

In the spring and summer months, you’ll receive a free souvenir biodegradable rain poncho as protection from the mist of the Falls.
