WILD WATERFALLS TOUR ($50 per person)
Niagara Falls is spectacular for a reason, but did you know about Rockway Falls or Balls Falls?
We can explore these two hidden sanctuaries through their steep-cut gorges, have a swim on a hot day, and admire colossal ice formations in the winter. No matter what season, a variety of wildlife can be spotted and the rock formations will always impress.
There are plenty of photography opportunities, as the landscape and waterways are complex. Both of these waterfalls are unique in their appearance and canyon formations, the only thing in common being their location along the rugged and biodiverse Niagara Escarpment. The deep pockets of Carolinian Forest are an essential habitat to migrating birds and some fascinating reptiles.
Swimming options exist at Balls Falls, weather permitting.
A lunch option exists at a local pub, winery, or restaurant (separate cost). Please inform us during booking if you'd like a delicious lunch stop.
-Balls Falls- An enormous plunge / ribbon waterfall which can be viewed from above or below depending on seasonal water levels. This giant green incision into the Niagara Escarpment gives people a feeling of being "Up North" with its cooler microhabitats and vegetation characteristic, home to beavers and kingfishers.
-Rockway Falls- Dramatic rock scenery as its its absolute nest here. Thankfully, a gentle hiking trail leads down into the otherwise extreme scenery of the 15 Mile Creek canyon, where we look for salamanders and turtles amidst the water pools. Weather permitting, we can "scramble" to the base of the waterfall for amazing views.
Duration: 5 hours
