It’s then on to Niagara Falls to walk the scenic trails that surround it – including a section of Canada’s first ever, and longest hiking trail, the Bruce Trail – and to enjoy a cruise on the Maid of the Mist and a guided winery visit to sample more fine wines.

Available with selected departures in 2014, the cost of this 12-day holiday is £2899 per person, land-only or £3559 (13 days) inclusive of return Heathrow flights and transfers.
