Situated between the U.S. and Canadian border are 1,864 islands on the Saint Lawrence River, where you will have an opportunity to see up close from a boat cruise along the river (admission not included; seasonal) which will include unique sights such as the world's smallest international bridge and houses of the rich and famous on their own personal islands. With it's clear water and island-dotted landscape, you’ll see why the area is considered the fresh water boating capital of the world. You will stay overnight in upstate New York; night view of the Niagara Falls is not offered.

*Thousand Islands is closed during the winter, and it will be substituted by Secret Caverns.

Winter
Secret Caverns was discovered by a farmer after his cattle wandered into the entrance to cool down. The Secret Caverns are a kitschy and odd alternative to the nearby larger enterprise, Howe Caverns. A 103-step staircase is the only way in and out.

You'll be able to get close views of the breathtaking scenery on both the U.S. and Canadian sides of the falls without a visa.

      2-days Niagara Tour

      From NY to Niagara in the winter (Niagara Falls, River, Old Fort, Museum of Glass, and Ontario Lake), it was awesome. I bought a pack for 3 people (one was free). The guide was Rachel Xu, amazing! Polite, prepared, clear and very nice.

      Really good tour

      It's my 2nd tour with this company. The tour was good and they maintained the time well. The choice of attractions was good. But the choice of hotel (Days inn) was not good this time. My room was dirty and bugs were flying around. Red roof ...inn was a good hotel last year. Our tour guide Rachel was really good. She did a great job leading all the tourists and made sure everyone was having a good time. Read full review

    Hello,
    I am planning to sign up for a tour in December. I suppose many of the summer activities (e.g., boat tour) won't be possible. What is exactly the plan for winter tours? I mean what activities (included or optional) are possible at the falls? thanks
    10/06/2017 20:40:57
    Tours4Fun 10/06/2017 21:33:23

    Dear Gio,

    Thank you for your inquiry.

    That is correct, because of the major difference in weather things change and some attractions are not running during the winter season. There might be a boat ride but the type changes.

    In the tour page you can see the overview for the itinerary for the winter schedule.

    Thank you.

    Best Regards,
