NIAGARA GORGE + WHIRLPOOL ($25 per person)
A truly world-class hike and a favourite since my childhood, let's hike down through 420 million years of rock history together. Noted for its profound scenery and biological wonders, "the Gorge"- as locals call it, is a wonderland for adventurous hikers. The rewards and discoveries to be had in the Gorge are countless, as the scenery changes around every corner of the trail. Please be aware that this hike involves steep sections and long staircases, which guide you through the highly biodiverse Carolinian Forest.
