Marvel at the trillions of gallons of water powering their way along one of the widest stretches of white water in the world at White Water Walk. Travel down 70 m (229 ft) in an elevator, to a short tunnel leading to the water's edge. A 305 m (1/4 mi) boardwalk arm's length away from the natural phenomenon takes you to two observation points, both with views of the Class 6 whirlpool rapids, which rage ferociously at 48 km/h (30 mph). From here you will learn first-hand how the 410-million-year-old rock layers of the Niagara Gorge were slowly forged thanks to the sheer force of the water. Make White Water Walk a centerpiece of your Niagara Falls vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Niagara Falls road trip planning website.

White Water Walk reviews
We weren't sure what we were getting into, but were pleasantly surprised. We really enjoyed the nature and the majesty of the river. Would definitely do this again. more »

Gorgeous place to walk. You'll be transfixed, just by looking at the water. It's so much better to look at it from this close up than from the top. It's peaceful and just makes you wonder how something like water can be so beautiful but deadly.
Must visit, one of the best attraction in Niagara Falls Canada. 23 story down via high speed elevator ride and walk through the tunnel will take you to the breathtaking scenery of Niagara river. Great hiking, well secure walk along the river. Open till November 3rd. Highly recommended, enjoy some of my Collection.
