These 275-foot falls on the Montmorency River tower higher than even the legendary Niagara Falls. The 2013 season promises to be exhilarating for people who will visit Parc de la Chute-Montmorency – Montmorency Falls, the second most visited site of the provincial capital after Old Quebec. The highlight of all the new summer activities is certainly the opening of two via ferrata routes built in the Boischatel fault near the waterfalls. Via ferrata – this is Italian for “iron roads” - is an activity accessible to everyone over 12 years old that combines hiking and rock climbing. The two paths are built on the rock face on the eastern side of the waterfall. The less adventurous will also be able to get stunning views of the 83-meter high waterfall aboard the cable car which now runs with sparkling new cabins. History buffs will be glad to know that guided tours are now offered each weekend in the company of Sir Frederick Haldimand, who served as Governor of Quebec from 1778 to 1786 and Mathilde Robin, best known as the Lady in White, who lost her fiance during the Montmorency Battle in 1759. Guided tours are offered in French or English until Labour Day weekend.

Lots of stairs, great exercise. the walking bridge that transverses the falls is crazy. It gives a beautiful perspective of the falls.

We would love to go back in the summer. The falls are lovely, but the bridge across it was closed as was the restaurant that sits right beside the falls. Despite all that, seeing the ice and hear the roaring water was amazing!

This place is awesome to visit in the summer and winter. Seeing the fall drop 83m is a spectical. Currently in the winter the stairs are closed and the restaurant at the top of the cable car is closed but there is more than enough...More

It's possibly more beautiful in the winter than any other time of year. Many good viewing points. Partly frozen, with gigantic icicles. Two ice climbers were inching their way up one side of the falls. They must be crazy. I... More
