Fall in Love with the Wintry Falls

By on 1

What many tourists would never suspect is that Niagara Falls is at its most stunning in the winter when the mist forms ice sculptures on everything at the brink.  The crowds are few and the views are stunning.

When the mists rise from Niagara Falls and the temperature drops, the combination creates a spectacle of natural ice crystals that coat nearby trees, bushes and buildings.  Add to that the light show that illuminates the Falls each evening and you have a glittering gallery of ice sculptures no human hand could ever create!

Niagara Falls has the highest flow rate of any waterfall in the world and a vertical drop of 165 feet. The incredible combination makes it the most powerful waterfal in North America. During peak flow season, April to November, the volume of water approaching the Falls can be as much as 5.7 million liters per second!
