The falls are located along the border between the U.S. and Canada. It consists of three sections, the Canadian side’s Horseshoe Falls, which are separated from the American Falls by Goat Island, and the Bridal Veil Falls which are separated from the others by Capri Island.

The scenery is truly magical. Because of the power of the water there’s mist almost constantly. That allows you visitors to enjoy an beautiful rainbow which unites the two state banks.

If you look closely you might see the Lady of the Mist, the spirit of the falls. In fact, the legend says that the young Indian Lelawala in order to escape an arranged marriage,  decided to sacrifice herself by jumping from the waterfalls, but the god of Thunder saw her and immediately fell in love with her, making her his wife.

You have a variety of choices on how you prefer to access the fall. Ongiara, named after an Indian diety, is a boat that has been taking tourists to the base of the falls since 1846.

You can also “enter” into the falls through a series of tunnels that start from the Horseshoe Falls on the Canadian side.
