Falls Illumination

Niagara Falls illumination is a must for any visitor! Every night of the year, the three waterfalls that make up Niagara Falls are illuminated in glowing colours creating a stunning vista that can be viewed from near and far. The glowing waters against the dark sky elevate the beauty of the thundering wonder, making Niagara Falls at night unlike anything you’ve ever experienced. Lights shine from three different locales near the Falls to collectively provide the stunning waterfall illumination. Whether you decide to venture toward the brink of the Falls at Table Rock, watch from your Fallsview hotel room or take in the view from an epic illumination cruise, be sure to experience Niagara illumination on your next trip to Explore Niagara!
