Niagara Falls: Frozen in a Winter Wonderland


Canada’s side of Niagara Falls is one still-beauty


Niagara Falls, Ontario – Taken by Arjun YadavChristmas Day

After 57 years, Canada has hit a new record of extreme cold alert. This December, it reached up to -30 degrees C so far. Even though it’s freezing cold outside — even for a Canadian to outside for a second — some have bravely chosen to weather the frostbite in order to see the world famous Niagara Falls. In some amazing shots, social media users have allowed us to witness the triple waterfall in its stunning icy form.

If you look closely, you can see that the top of the falls is practically frozen. Some of these photos were taken when it was only -12 degrees C. Some have said the falls look better during winter than any other season, while others maintain that the falls look different in every season:

According to Environment Canada, this coming year may be the coldest winter for Canadians in years. It could reach up to -42 degrees C. Other provinces are already feeling the freeze. So far, Toronto has been steadying between -15 to -20 degrees C, and while we may be getting a frozen paradise, climate change is hitting our winter season with more icy chills than the last.

Would you risk the frosty cold to see Niagara Falls in winter? If you do, I highly recommend stopping by Tim Horton’s and grabbing yourself an extra large french vanilla before you take those selfies next to the Horseshoe.
