White Water Walk

4330 River Road, Niagara Falls, Ontario

The Basics

The White Water Walk is accessed via an elevator that carries passengers down 229 feet (70 meters) to a boardwalk suspended near the frothy torrents of Niagara’s Whirlpool Rapids. The walkway is a popular stop on organized Niagara Falls day trips, which usually include other area attractions such as Hornblower cruises, Journey Behind the Falls, Skylon Tower, and even helicopter rides.

Other Ways to See the Niagara Rapids

The furious rapids that rush through the gorge showcase the power and intensity of the Niagara River. In addition to viewing the river from the White Water Walk, you can travel out over the rapids on the Whirlpool Aero Car, an antique cable car on the Canadian side of the river that’s been running since 1916.
