Overview
More
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.

The suspension bridge over the falls was very cool. You can't do that at every waterfall. I recommend going on your own if you can rather than in a tour group. This will enable to you to wander at your own pace and get away...More

Majestic yet modest, visiting the waterfalls was our favourite part of a week's stay in Quebec. We rode the 800 bus from the city centre to the last stop which took about 25 minutes. We then walked across a bridge which took us into the...More

Wet and windy, lots of calories burned climbing up, we rode bicycles for 30 mikes before arriving and rode 30 back after - the Dinner at the top and a nice cable ride down was the best part. Simply stunning!

Montmorency Falls is breathtaking. We were able to get as close as we can and it was an amazing experience. Although our visit to Quebec was brief we had memories that will last a lifetime.

We did an organised bus tour from Quebec town to the falls. At the falls you get to the top by cable car. What a great day. We visited Ile d’Orleans and visited a quaint chocolate factory there. We also visited Sainte-Anne De Beaupre cathedral.
