From the backbone of Ontario, the Niagara Escarpment, across the breezy Lake Ontario and Lake Erie shorelines and finally to the thundering Horseshoe Falls, Niagara region's dramatic landscapes and southern latitude contribute to uniquely perfect grape-growing conditions.
Witness the extraordinary beauty and power of Niagara Falls, renowned for its breathtaking natural wonder. This area is also Ontario's most established wine region, home to over 120 wineries producing internationally recognized, cool-climate varieties, including Rieslings and Ice-wine.
Consider a bike ride along the Niagara River Recreation Trail, a paved path for non-motorized traffic stretching some fifty-three kilometres along the Canadian side of the Niagara River.
From Fort George in Niagara-on-the-Lake, in the north, this path follows along the peninsula's entire length, ending at Anger Street in the north end of the Town of Fort Erie.
Or plan a visit to Niagara Glen, where meandering paths form a trial in the pristine pocket of Carolinian Forest. A designated nature reserve, the Glen offers well laid out tracks mixed with slightly rugged terrain along the banks of the Niagara River.
