These falls are a must stop and see. They are beautiful and pwerful. There are several viewing areas that are all worth the time. We even saw a double rainbow while we were there.

We had nie rafting trip here, and it was extremely nice. Enjoyed swimming in the river with wetsuits on, and just flowing with the river. Water is cold, but nice and clean. And the views <3

Great views, but being from the Ottawa River-area, water not fast enough for us!! Way fun nonetheless.

Around every turn is a more gorgeous view. The water is so turquoise, glacier-cold...the rafting looked like a must-do for next time!!
