Journey Behind the Falls

Horseshoe Falls is an awesome site from the shore and from a boat, but the best way to truly experience its absolute power is to take the Journey Behind the Falls. On this journey, you’ll don a plastic poncho and traverse tunnels bored into the rock behind the great sheet water for a thunderous up-close view.

Journey Behind the Falls consists of an observation platform and series of tunnels near the bottom of the Horseshoe Falls on the Canadian shore. The tunnels and platform can be reached by elevators from the street level entrance. You walk through two tunnels, which extend approximately 150 feet/46 meters behind the waterfall. When you reach the end of the tunnel, you can see water cascading in front of the open cave entrances. The best part is stepping out on the observation deck for the full experience. You will get very wet, but it’s worth it for the site of the roaring water.

Practical Info

Journey Behind the Falls is located off Niagara Parkway, directly across from Horseshoe Falls. You enter the tunnels through the Table Rock House, which has information and the ponchos you’ll need to stay dry.

Journey Behind the Falls is open year-round, but be prepared to queue. The best time to visit is early in the day. Parking is available at the Niagara Parkway parking lot. Nearby attractions include Clifton Hill and the Niagara Glen Nature Reserve.
