How to take a walk underneath Niagara Falls in Toronto
The Horseshoe is the most powerful waterfall of Niagara three - this is where the river runs into Lake Ontario.

You can watch the waterfall from a helicopter, approach to it in a steamboat (Maid of the Mist) or get inside it through the tunnel in the rock.

How to do?

1. You can get to Niagara Falls by bus that departs from Toronto Coach Terminal central bus station for $13-15. Look up the timetable here. The way takes 2,5 hours. From Niagara Falls bus station go to bus stop at Bridge St & Erie Street intersection – take bus №104 (fare around the city is $3-6) and go to Victoria Av & Centre Street intersection. Then walk about 20 minutes in Niagara Parks Welcome Centre direction: down Clifton Hill to Falls Avenue, then turn right in Niagara Pkwy direction. Niagara Parks Welcome Centre entrance is on your left – follow the scheme of the building and find Journey Behind the Falls sign.

2. On buying the ticket ($17.30) you’ll be given a raincoat (actually there is no use in one when you’re under tonnish water current) and a bag for your clothes. Descend to the bottom of the Horseshoe falls lies through hundred-year-old caves in the rock – listen out wall vibration caused by Niagara roar.

3. At the bottom the waterfall seems a lot more powerful: fifth part of all fresh water in Canada falls from the height of 13th floor – what a shot! Just don’t forget to put a waterproof case on your camera.
