Travel from New York to Niagara Falls and visit the Finger Lakes
Discover the thundering waters of Niagara Falls on this short break adventure to one of the most iconic settings in the United States. Hear the deafening roar of the falls and feel the power of millions of litres of water cascading over the edge of Lake Erie and into the tumultuous white water below. Grab a raincoat and get up close to this ecological marvel on a ‘Maid of the Mist’ boat ride to the base of the falls, before heading to the picturesque Finger Lakes for a classic all-American outdoor experience. For those who are short on time, the New York City to Niagara Falls is the perfect way to experience the natural beauty of New York State.
The almighty Niagara Falls is a sight to behold. Get wet and wild with a boat cruise to the base of the falls by day and see it lit up in technicolour by night
For unforgettable scenes of rural America, drive through the lush lands near the Appalachian Trail and wind your way through the Pocono Mountains
Enjoy the rolling hills and fresh country air of the Finger Lakes wine region, sampling some local tipple in a tasting session
Ideal accommodation locations mean you're close to Niagara Falls one day and in the heart of the Finger Lakes the next
There's a large amount of driving involved in this trip and much of the time is spent in the van. This is all part of the adventure and gives you the opportunity to get to know your fellow travellers.
As this is a short trip, the itinerary is packed full of sights and activities. This means there's not much time to explore or relax in your own time. If you'd like to stay on in New York for an extra few days, we'd be happy to help you book accommodation (subject to availability).
Even in the summer, it can get very cold in the areas visited (especially at night). Bring warm clothing with you and a good raincoat for your visit to the base of Niagara Falls.
The Maid of the Mist boat tour is subject to weather conditions. While this trip runs during the warmer months (from 1 April to 30 October), if you're travelling at the very start or end of the season it's possible that the boat tour might be cancelled if the weather is bad. We organise an alternative activity if this is the case.

I took the 3 day New York to Niagara Falls tour. It was a most memorable tour. The tour leader was fantastic and helpful. We had a small group of 4, so it was easy to tailor the tour to accommodate all our individual preferences. The actual planning of remainder of my holiday through Intrepid was not so great. I had to pretty much research the airfares and accommodation options myself to find the best time to travel. I would have thought it was the travel agents job to finds the best option for the passenger.

I had a great time. I got to see everything I wanted and got information to all the sights we went to. The guide made sure we get the most out of this trip. Would recommend it to everyone.
