Niagara Falls really needs little introduction as one of the most famous natural wonders in the world. The Niagara Gorge separates Canada from the United States but the two are linked via the Rainbow Bridge. The town itself is located on the western shore and overlooks the Horseshoe Falls, which is the most dramatic of the two falls and it is possible to take the lift down to a lower and much wetter vantage point!

Hornblower’s ‘Voyage To The Falls’ cruise takes you from the Canadian docks at the base of the Great Gorge, past the Bridal Veil Falls on the American side and then up-close and personal with the thundering water, awesome power and amazing mist of the mighty Horseshoe Falls!
