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.

Well worth a trip out to this park to see the falls. Excellent views of the falls, but you couldn't pay me to get on that zipline.

Ok, it might be known for the fall, but it has a very nice park on the top with a lot of green area. As far as I heard, it´s taller than Niagara, but the volume... you cannot compare. Anyway, it was worth going there...More

We visited the falls yesterday. We ended up taking the stairs since taking the cable car was 15 Canadian dollars per person. Taking the steps can be a challenge since there are nearly 500 steps to take but we still ended up taking nice pictures...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
