TOUR DESCRIPTION

Details

This running tour combines the beautiful nature and trails with the incredible Niagara Falls. A running tour that will blow you away! In 1879, botanist Frederick Law Olmsted wrote that he had traveled four thousand miles throughout the continent “without finding elsewhere the same quality of forest beauty.” The island’s nature and forest feel is still present today and is for many a welcome escape from the tourist crowds to take in Mother nature’s beauty.

We start the running tour on the U.S. side by running around Goat Island. This island is right in the middle of the Niagara River rapids and provides an up close view of the falls that most visitors never see.

We continue our run to the brink of the American Falls, where we take in the incredible views and where there is also time for taking pictures. Now real life hits us again, as we pass through immigration and inspection (remember your passports). Next up is the very middle of the Rainbow Bridge where you can stand in the USA & Canada in one spot at the same time. Have your pictures on the bridge with the Falls as your background! After a short run along the river, we will stop to view the Canadian Falls. Then it’s a run back over the bridge for a last look at the mighty Niagara Falls.

This running tour is the perfect tour for nature lovers. You are surrounded by incredible nature while you experience one of the most impressive waterfalls in the world. Simply an unforgettable run!

Recommended start time is between 6 AM – 10 AM. We can run later, however there will be many tourists.

We start on the U.S. side if you are staying there, or on the Canadian side if you are located in Canada. Remember your passports, or Enhanced Drivers License!

That will give the guide/city manager enough time to arrange together with you the last tour details like the meeting point, start time and to organize a personal tour guide for your unique and fun running experience.
