Nothing prepares you for Niagara Falls. From the Canadian side, witness gushing water pouring over a horseshoe-shaped crest to hit the river bottom below. The sheer force of the collision wraps you in mist. Venture through vapours by boat or follow tunnels carved into bedrock to stand behind the falls. Once on dry land, explore the nearby village and its surrounding wineries and breweries.
