What you’ll do
Come celebrate the season with the ultimate holiday experience in Niagara - the Festive Night on Niagara Holiday Tour! Join us to bask in the way that Niagara Falls comes to life with wondrous merriment during the holiday season.
Your festive night begins with your tour guide picking you up from any downtown Niagara Falls, Canada location in the comfort and style of a heated Mercedes Metris van. You will then make your way to your first joyful experience.
You’ll be filled with cheer as you notice how the city transforms into a winter wonderland during the holiday season while driving along the parkway and through Dufferin Islands to see the Winter Festival of Lights. This year marks the 40th anniversary of Canada’s largest free outdoor light festival, and you can be sure that it won’t disappoint. Enjoy the holiday display of Christmas trees, giant ornaments, polar bears, moose, and more, made from millions of twinkling lights that will dazzle your senses and spread holiday cheer. There are even fireworks on Fridays and Saturdays to add to the sparkle of the event.
You will then enjoy the ride of a lifetime on a helicopter tour around Niagara Falls, the gorge, and the surrounding area. The photos you’ll take while onboard are guaranteed to make your friends jealous, yet still won’t compare to the feeling of catching this view in person. While the view during the day is spectacular, there is something magical about seeing the way the Falls and the surrounding area comes to life with stunning colourful lights - especially during the holiday season while the Winter Festival of Lights is taking place!
Treat your senses to a delicious 3-course Fallsview dinner by the brink of the Falls at Table Rock House Restaurant. Enjoy locally sourced and internationally inspired cuisine with an incredible view of the icy Falls right beside you.
Your guide will lead you to the Illumination Tower, where you will experience the Falls’ illumination against the night sky, a multi-colored water and light masterpiece. As an added bonus, our guests then have the opportunity to get creative and control the lights themselves! Be sure to choose holiday colours to add to the festive atmosphere. Before exiting the tower, you will be presented with an “I Lit Up Niagara Falls” certificate as a keepsake from this exclusive, once-in-a-lifetime experience.
Lastly, your tour guide will offer complimentary drop-off at any downtown Niagara Falls, Canada location.
