Full description
During this 30 minute regional tour of Niagara, fly 2,500 feet above ground to see some of the most striking scenery Niagara has to offer. First take off in the direction of Niagara-on-the-Lake, where you'll see the two historical forts that were built by the French fur traders, the British United Empire Loyalist. Marvel at the view of Toronto from 31 miles (50 kilometers) away across Lake Ontario.

Next, head south and fly in the American Air Space - across the vineyards and parallel to the Niagara River. Some minutes later, you'll see two small lakes, the reservoirs for the Hydro Electric Dams on both the U.S. and Canadian side of the border. These dams drive industry and provide inexpensive and ecologically friendly electric power to the whole region.

Following the dams, travel over Queenston Heights Battle Ground from the War of 1812 and the 100 Years War. Next, see the Niagara River Whirlpool Gorge, swirling around at the bottom of the rapids. You'll get a closer look at the city of Niagara Falls, Bridal Veil Falls on the U.S. side and Horseshoe Falls on the Canadian Side. Both are magnificent. After the tour, exit the Niagara Falls area and turn towards the west to view the engineering marvel of The Welland Canal. This connects Lake Erie to Lake Ontario and shipping destinations and ports around the world. All seats on the plane are window seats and all seats face forward.
