Niagara falls are a spectacular place to visit at any time of year, however in winter, especially seriously cold winters like North America is currently experiencing, they are truly a breathtaking sight.

While the bitter temperatures have caused chaos in some areas and affected the New Year’s plans of millions, one upside to the big chill is the raw beauty of nature. Many areas of the falls have frozen, forming huge, elaborately shaped ice formations dangling precariously on the rocks, giving the impression of a Narnia-like winter fantasy land.

You can scroll down below to check out some of the gorgeous pictures for yourself, they make you feel cold just looking at them!

One Last Photo From My Recent Visit At Niagara Falls. It’s A Place I Enjoyed Visiting, I Went Under The Falls, Spent Time With The Butterflies And Visited The Indoor Flower Garden While Of Course Walking Along The Seawall Of The Falls! I’m Always Looking For Something Different To Capture And This Is The One Shot I Preferred The 3 Elements Of Ice Water And The Sun Completed The Composition. Hope You Like It. 😀

It a tourist walkway. This is where they wear raincoats and walk up stairs to see the falls closer in the summer. I'm 30 minutes from there.

Though Known For Its Hundreds Of Acres Of Lush Terrain And Trails Conducive To Hiking, Niagara Falls State Park Boasts Equally Stunning Views Even As Temperatures Drop And Crowds Thin. Right Now, The Falls Are Completely Coated In Ice — And Absolutely Jaw-Dropping. More Than 3,000 Tons Of Water Flows Over The Falls Every Second. Sometimes The Ice Over The Niagara River At The Base Of The Falls Gets So Thick That People Have Been Known To Build Concession Stands Across It Or Walk Back And Forth Between The U.s. And Canada.
