Following wooden walkways along the Niagara River to the Hurricane Deck, just a few feet from the torrents of Niagara Falls. You’ll witness and feel the storm-like conditions caused by the Bridal Veil Falls.

Helicopter Tours – This is a unique experience in which you can join a helicopter tour and enjoy the view from above with the perfect view of the falls, the gorge (deep narrow passage), and the whirlpool. It’s a bit expensive, however, very well worth it for a once in a lifetime experience.
Skylon Tower – Located on the Canadian side, this observation tower rises above the falls to give you an amazing view, and it’s the most important landmark next to the falls.
You can enjoy a delicious meal during your visit to this tower, as there are two nice restaurants on the top, and a revolving dining room that allows you to have a great view once it rotates.
