Take a walk like no other at the White Water Walk, along a boardwalk at the very edge of one of the world's wildest stretches of whitewater! Marvel at the relentless power and beauty of nature, and see how the deep and narrow Great Gorge was created. Trillions of gallons of water are forced into this accelerating trough--the sight will take your breath away!
Experience a first-hand lesson in the raw power and peril of the Niagara River’s Class 6 white-water rapids on the White Water Walk. The roar of the river provides a deceptive tranquility, the perfect ambiance for your walk among the many viewing platforms that put you right at the river’s edge. For those looking for an up-close and personal view of nature’s power, you will not want to miss this.
This self-guided tour includes many stories about the geology of the Niagara Gorge and the plant and animal life you may see on your visit to Niagara Parks.
Travel by elevator down 70 meters to the base of the gorge and the impressive quarter mile of boardwalk that runs along the shoreline of the White Water Walk. Stepping out from the exit tunnel you will be immediately immersed in the soothing roar of North America's largest series of standing waves! Make your way down the self-guided boardwalk tour as you take in the crashing waves and enjoy an excellent view of the 410-million-year-old rock layers of the Niagara Gorge.
Branching off from the boardwalk are several viewing platforms that allow visitors to get even closer to the Whirlpool Rapids travelling by at 48 km/hr. These platforms also make for great ideal spots, selfie or otherwise!
