Discover the stunning beauty and power of the world-famous Niagara Falls from above and below, in daylight and under the cover of night. Explore the pristine beauty of New England and do some bargain shopping along the way.
On Day 1 depart New York, passing beautiful landscapes and visiting Watkins Glen State Park or Montour Falls (during winter, when the Park is inaccessible) on the way to Niagara. Once there, tour the falls and see the colourful lighting of the water by night. Tour another panoramic point of the falls on Day 2 and experience the power of Niagara by boat (summer) or tour the Scenic Tunnels (winter). On the way back to New York we will stop at an outlet mall for some bargain shopping.
Day 1: New York - Finger Lakes - Niagara Falls
This morning wave goodbye to New York as we head north past the stunning Delaware Water Gap, through Watkins Glen State Park, and into the heart of the beautiful Finger Lakes Region. Take a walk through Watkins Glen Canyon to visit the pristine waterfalls before we continue on, passing the blue waters of Seneca Lake on the way to the world-famous Niagara Falls (during winter you will visit Montour Falls instead of Watkins Glen Park, when the Park is inaccessible). Arriving in the late afternoon, we will tour the amazing American side of the falls, including the American Falls, Goat Island, and Sister Island. We will also take a night tour of the falls, viewing the beautiful lighting display colouring the thundering waters. Overnight in Niagara Falls.
Day 2: Niagara Falls - New York (B)
After breakfast, hear the roar of the passing water as we drive to Horseshoe Falls for an amazing lookout point. Next, experience the full power of Niagara aboard the Maid of the Mist (May-October) or tour the Scenic Tunnels during winter months. Around noon we will depart for New York, stopping on the way at one of the area’s large outlet malls for some all-American bargain hunting. Your trip ends in the evening as we return to New York City. We wish you health and happiness on your travels onward in the city that never sleeps!
