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 power and majesty of nature is breathtaking here. The falls are easily accessible from so many angles and views. There is something here for everyone from the curious, active child to the solitary traveler looking to add to their photo collection. BRING BUG SPRAY!

Quite spectacular falls. You can travel to the top by cable car and there is a zipline. A long path leads to very close to the foot of the falls.

We loved the waterfalls at this location. We didn't have to ride a cable car, or even walk across the bridge to get an excellent view and photos. We were short on time and still enjoyed this wonderful park. Lovely facilities (bathrooms, gift shop, snack...More

If you have several days in QC, a trip to Chute Montmorency and Ile d'Orleans provides a very enjoyable change of pace. For some reason, humans seems to enjoy seeing and hearing rivers jump off a clift. Montmorency Falls will satisfy that itch. Pretty easy...More

Really enjoyed the visit here. The falls are themselves quite nice. And you can do an easy loop... over the bridge, down the stairs (with fantastic viewing platforms along the way), around and up the cable car. Really a highlight attraction of Quebec.

I took the tour bus from Quebec, that was only a 15 minute drive and less than $20. Blue line only. Be here early because it gets crowded, go up first, the cable cart is around$15 but you can go upstairs for free. The views...More

Hi, I was there in early April and it doesn't operate until the summer months so I couldn't tell you. However If you go to the website I'm sure you can ask them directly. Thanks
