When driving a luxury car like a Ferrari, it’s only natural to want to take it for a spin through stunning landscapes that complement its aesthetic appeal.
Although summer might be the first season that comes to mind when most people think of going for a scenic road trip, winter brings about plenty of beauty that is worth enjoying. Winter is a particularly exquisite time of the year for a scenic drive in the stunning Niagara region in Southern Ontario.
During the holiday season in the Niagara region, not only can you feel the festive spirit in the air, but you can also take in some spectacular snow-covered landscapes and enjoy some fun-filled activities while you are at it.
All in all, this region has a little something for everyone throughout the winter months, making it the perfect area to drive through and enjoy. If you would like to treat yourself to a truly special experience this winter, driving through Niagara in a Ferrari is just about as special as it gets.
What are some of the best spots to drive a Ferrari this winter?
When taking a Ferrari out for a scenic winter drive, you will no doubt want to ensure that you include multiple beautiful and magical locations to experience along your journey. This is why the Niagara region is perfect for such an outing, as it is filled with remarkable sights that are enhanced even more by the beauty brought on by winter.
The following are some of the most impressive spots in the region that are definitely worth checking out this winter:
1. The spectacular Niagara Falls
Undeniably, the most significant site of natural beauty in the Niagara region, and in all of Canada for that matter, is the spectacular Niagara Falls. All throughout the year, this waterfall is jaw-droppingly beautiful, but it’s particularly awe-inspiring in the winter months when layers of glistening snow and ice begin to surround them.
If you would really like to take in this impressive sight from up close, you can do so from the upper or lower deck with the Journey Behind the Falls attraction at the Table Rock Welcome Center.
There are also many other unique ways to enjoy the breathtaking view of Niagara Falls. If you want to check it out from above, consider taking a journey to the top of the Skylon Tower. Alternatively, you can enjoy an overhead view of the Falls when you ride the Niagara Skywheel, which will take you 175 feet into the air with climate-controlled gondolas.
2. Niagara’s Winter Festival of Lights
While you are in the vicinity of Niagara Falls, it is definitely worth checking out one of the largest illumination festivals in Canada: the Winter Festival of Lights.
This truly stunning display of colourful Christmas lights is set up along the Niagara Parkway route, the Fallsview tourist district, and Dufferin Islands between November 18th and January 31st, turning this part of the city into a winter wonderland for all to enjoy.
The collection of mesmerizing lights that grows bigger and brighter from year to year includes everything from shimmering trees to 3D displays to lit-up displays showcasing Canada’s unique wildlife.
To complement this magical experience, you can participate in the interactive laser shows that take place every 15 minutes after 5:30 p.m. on Clifton Hill. Or, you can enjoy the Fallsview Sound and Light show that involves 3D projection mapping on the Oakes Hotel, bringing it to life with musical accompaniment.
It is impossible not to feel festive with such beauty everywhere you look in this area during the winter months.
3. An ice wine adventure
Another great reason that the Niagara region is famed is its wine, which is stellar. Producing wine is not just a summer event in Niagara; the region’s warm days and cool nights in the winter make it the perfect place to make ice wine—a drink with the perfect balance of acidity and sweetness.
If you are in Niagara during the winter and you are a fan of ice wine, it is definitely worth stopping at Peller Estates’ 10Below Ice Wine Lounge.
This lounge will offer you an unforgettable experience, as it is shaped like an igloo and is kept at a chilly -10 degrees Celsius, which is the ideal temperature for harvesting ice wine grapes. The lounge also has a bar, sculptures, and a chandelier, all of which are carved out of ice. Best of all, while you are there, you can try some of their award-winning ice wines.
4. See a classic Canadian sugar bush
One of the most quintessential activities in Canada during winter is visiting a sugar bush to enjoy some delicious maple syrup. Fortunately, this is yet another experience that is possible to enjoy while you are in Niagara, as Sugar Bush Farms is open annually from November to April.
At this farm, you can take a ride on a wagon pulled by a tractor through a Carolinian sugar bush, and learn about the maple syrup production process from an expert guide.
While you are here, you can (and should) also enjoy a tall stack of delicious pancakes drizzled with some of the freshest and tastiest maple syrup you will ever try. Or, if you are up for a true Canadian winter classic, you can snack on some maple taffy, which is maple syrup that is heated and condensed, then poured over fresh snow.
