Awesome is perhaps an overused word in this part of North America but I have to say that it is apt when thinking of the American and Horshoe Falls.
From a distance they are impressive. Underneath they are powerful and behind them they are incredibly noisy. It makes you realise what 100mph+ water is like.
We started the day with the Hornblower boat trip up to the falls followed by a walk behind them and then the “Fury” 4D experience. This was followed by a bus ride down the river to the White Water Walk. One short walk beside category six rapids (considered unnavigable) makes you realise the power of the water.
