Visit a stunning natural wonder on a luxury holiday to Niagara Falls. Base yourself in Ontario Canada, where you’ll find picturesque towns surrounded by extreme natural beauty and charming attractions. Travel to the region’s vineyards or discover breathtaking views of Niagara Falls, one of the largest waterfalls in the world.
Niagara Falls is composed of three waterfalls – the American Falls, Bridal Veil Falls, and Horseshoe Falls. For panoramic views over the entire system, travel 233 metres above sea level to the top of Skylon Tower.
If you’d like to get closer to Niagra Falls, book one of the many cruises or tours that will take you into the heart of the spectacular waterfalls. Thrill seekers can pay a visit to Niagara Parks, a lively outdoor adventure museum where you can zip line to the waterfalls and enjoy a whitewater or whirlpool adventure walk.
For those who’d instead practice their swing, the park also offers three scenic championship golf courses, while nature lovers may enjoy a peaceful stroll through the butterfly conservatory. While Niagara Falls themselves are merely breathtaking and worth the trip alone, you’ll find plenty of other gems in the Canadian province of Ontario. In southern Ontario, you can stroll along the scenic beaches of St. Catharines or visit the picturesque villages of Port Colborne and Old Fort Erie.
Niagara Falls is spectacular year-round, but if you enjoy warm and sunny holidays visit between mid-May and mid-September as summer has the highest temperatures. July and August are the warmest months with average temperatures of around 26 degrees Celsius.
If you travel during the first few weeks of October, you’re likely to see the stunning foliage surrounding the waterfalls. During the depths of winter, temperatures drop below zero degrees Celsius and you could experience a gorgeous snowscape.
Niagara Falls is a world-renowned destination, so it comes as no surprise that it’s also home to a vast range of international restaurants. You’ll be able to find flavours from all over the globe from French pastries to German sausages.
If you’d like to try some local delicacies during your stay, bite into a freshly picked locally-grown corn on the cob, sample the artisanal cheddar cheeses made throughout Ontario, try freshwater fish pickerel and be sure to ask for maple syrup on fluffy American pancakes.
