There are many ways to get spectacular views of Niagara Falls while visiting the city this summer, like by walking right up to the brink of the Falls at Table Rock, exploring the tunnels behind the rushing waters of the Horseshoe Falls, and venturing into the mist from below on an iconic boat ride. But if you want to take in the beauty of this remarkable natural wonder from above, here are some of the best ways to do it.
Niagara Helicopters Ride
Niagara Helicopters is one of Niagara’s most exciting aerial attractions. Embarking on a helicopter tour will allow you to experience a one-of-a-kind scenic flight that begins over the Sir Adam Beck Generating Plant, continues over the Niagara River, whirlpool and rapids, and finishes off by taking you directly above the magnificent Bridal Veil, American, and Horseshoe Falls.
Fallsview Hotel Room
You can experience world-class accommodation in direct view of the magnificent Niagara Falls by booking a Fallsview room at one of Niagara’s many amazing hotels like the Sheraton Fallsview, Crowne Plaza Fallsview, Marriott Fallsview, and Marriott on the Falls. You can have a comfortable and luxurious stay while also taking in direct views of the Falls from floor-to-ceiling windows for a truly magical experience right in your hotel room.
Whirlpool Aero Car
Operating in Niagara Falls since 1916, the Whirlpool Aero Car is an antique cable car suspended above the Niagara Whirlpool that offers unparalleled views of the Niagara River, whirlpool, and rapids from above. A round trip on the cable car is about one kilometre in total and the entire journey is both thrilling and unforgettable.
Located on Clifton Hill in the heart of the city’s tourist district, the Niagara SkyWheel is Canada’s largest observation wheel standing 175 feet high. A ride on the SkyWheel will give you fantastic aerial views of Niagara Falls from fully air-conditioned and heated gondolas, offering a great activity both day and night for people of all ages.
