BOOK AN ALL-INCLUSIVE WALKING TOUR FEATURING JOURNEY BEHIND THE FALLS
There is no better way to feel small than to take a journey behind the falls on a walking tour.
With this in mind, isn’t it convenient then that we include a Journey Behind The Falls into the costs of several of our Niagara Falls tour packages? :)
Let’s answer some of your most pressing questions you may have when it comes to Journey Behind The Falls tours.
WHAT IS THE JOURNEY BEHIND THE FALLS?
Niagara Parks describes it as “a year round attraction that offers a unique view of the falls from below and behind.” but we just call it our favorite attraction in Niagara Falls which is why we include it in both of our walking tours::
We account for 30 minutes at this attraction so that every person can get the complete experience.
You’ll be able to view the falls from behind through one of the viewing portals that have been cut straight through the rock and also from below the falls by venturing out onto the observation deck.
HOW MUCH DOES A JOURNEY BEHIND THE FALLS TOUR COST?
If you’re looking for a superior overall Niagara Falls tour experience PLUS the Journey Behind The Falls we recommend an all-inclusive Niagara Falls walking tour package led by the most experience tour guides in Niagara Falls.
For those do it yourselfers, tickets can be purchased directly from Niagara Parks.
IS THE JOURNEY BEHIND THE FALLS BETTER THAN CAVE OF THE WINDS?
Well you can call us biased, but yes it is.
When it comes to American side attractions vs Canadian side attractions, Maid of The Mist rides = Hornblower Boat Tours but Cave of the Winds < Journey Behind The Falls.
Canada wins this round.
We don’t just say that because it’s our personal opinion (and we’ve done them both), there are objective reasons why the Journey Behind The Falls is a better tour experience compared to Cave of the Winds.
Journey has a larger and easier to access viewing area plus the most obvious difference is the fact that the Journey Behind The Falls takes you up close and personal with the best of the 3 falls that make up Niagara Falls, the Horseshoe Falls on Canada’s side.
DO YOU GET WET DURING THE JOURNEY BEHIND THE FALLS?
How wet you get depends on how close you get, and how close you get is entirely up to you!
Note: You’ll be supplied one of the iconic yellow ponchos to stay dry(ish) at no extra charge.
You can go right up to the railing of the observation deck and reach out to get as close as possible or stand back a little further to take it all in.
You also have the option of staying indoors altogether (which is sometimes a requirement if the weather is extreme).
You may get a little wet if you participate in the viewing platform but we promise you it will be very much worth it! :)
IS THERE PARKING NEAR THE JOURNEY BEHIND THE FALLS?
Sort of. Parking Lot A across from the Table Rock Centre is your closest and most convenient parking option if you’re coming to town for the Journey.
Before our walking tours, we meet at the Murray Hill Welcome Centre which is conveniently close to the base of the Skylon Tower (ample paid parking) and we walk over to the Journey Behind The Falls so you don’t have to worry so much about the logistics surrounding parking and transportation.
