10Best.com writes: "If you think Niagara Falls is impressive from the front, try viewing it from the back!" On the Journey Behind the Falls, you'll be able to stand directly behind the roaring sheet of water and get a literal behind-the-scenes peek at this magnificent natural attraction. The tour begins with an elevator ride to an observation deck where you can take in the view of the Canadian Horseshoe Falls and the Niagara River. From there, follow the caverns and enjoy the roaring curtain of the falls from a different perspective. However, be prepared for crowds -- Journey Behind the Falls is one of the most popular ways to see the falls, so you may find that the tunnels are rather cramped.
The Journey Behind the Falls tour begins on the Canadian side of Niagara Falls, and the caverns are open daily, although hours vary depending on the season. Tours are self-guided (audio tours are available, and admission ranges from $8 to $13 USD). The price for Journey Behind the Falls is also included when you purchase an Adventure Pass.
