Journey Behind the Falls

The experience

At Journey Behind the Falls, you’ll descend about 125 ft. (approximately 40m) to explore cave-like tunnels that are over 130-years old behind the Canadian Horseshoe Falls. The tunnels will lead you to two observation decks.


Journey Behind the Falls takes you to the base of the Falls. The entrance is located at 6650 Niagara Parkway in the Table Rock Welcome Centre.


Journey Behind the Falls offers the ultimate experience for your senses between the thunderous sounds, the vibrations and the unbelievable view of the Canadian Horseshoe Falls.

This experience will take you to the base of Niagara’s Canadian Horseshoe Falls and as you stand there you’ll get to witness the chilly gush of water tumbling down from thirteen storeys above. In this exciting journey tourists are led to descend 125 ft. (approximately 40m) via elevator to a short tunnel which provides access to two outdoor observation decks as well as two portals that are situated directly behind the glorious Niagara Falls. The Lower Observation Deck is closed during the winter months but the Upper Observation Deck is open all year-round.

As a bonus - you’ll receive a very fashionable, biodegradable rain poncho to protect yourself from the chilly mist of the falls, which you may keep as a souvenir if you please.
