White Water Walk, Niagara Falls

(3,000+ reviews on the web)
Historic Walking Area Hiking Trail
Marvel at the trillions of gallons of water powering their way along one of the widest stretches of white water in the world at White Water Walk. Travel down 70 m (229 ft) in an elevator, to a short tunnel leading to the water's edge. A 305 m (1/4 mi) boardwalk arm's length away from the natural phenomenon takes you to two observation points, both with views of the Class 6 whirlpool rapids, which rage ferociously at 48 km/h (30 mph). From here you will learn first-hand how the 410-million-year-old rock layers of the Niagara Gorge were slowly forged thanks to the sheer force of the water. Plan to visit White Water Walk and other customer-reviewed, writer-recommended Niagara Falls attractions using our Niagara Falls trip itinerary planner.

  • This place has impressive views of the Niagara river and its rapids. This rapids are classified as category 6, which mean they are almost not drivable in a water raft. The experience was rwally nice and the contact with nature was very close.
  • The river walk was interesting in that you are able to walk alongside such a powerful and might rapids area. We visited because this was part of the Adventure pass. If you are in the northern area anyway to do the zip car or whatever it is worth a stop but don't come just for this if you are staying near the falls.
  • This is a really good walk. It takes you up close with the white water and allows you to understand how powerful and large it is. There is lots of info along the river to read which is good.
  • Don't leave without visiting. As amazing as the Falls. Absolutely beautiful, the fury of the waters next to you as you walk.
  • Amazing walk along the grade 6 rapids. Way better than I expected, definitely worth the visit
