Full description
Enjoy the views from the Niagara Whirlpool Aero Cable cars over the Category 6 waves where the Gorge Narrow creates the whirlpool rapids. Civil Engineer Leonardo Torres Quevedo created the Aero Car in 1916, which is a new type of aerial cable way that he called a "transbordador". This Aero cable car is the only one of its existence, and you may enjoy this as you wish during your stay.

Start with the incredible Journey Behind the Falls as you take an elevator down to the scenic tunnels located beyond the falls. Enjoy access to this natural wonder at the base of the Horseshoe Falls. Stand beyond the caves or step outside to the observation deck located at the bottom of the fall and see and feel the strength of the fall.

Upgrade to an escorted 60-minute tour of the American side of the falls where your tour will begin with a drive to Goat Island. Take in views of the Horseshoe Falls and hear about their formation, walk down to Luna Island for views of the American and Bridal Falls as well. Experience the falls up close on a Maid of the Mist boat tour, heading into the center of the thundering Horseshoe Falls. During the winter, visit the Niagara Adventure Theater instead, and discover the thundering falls from an exhilarating perspective.
