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.

We headed there right after a heavy downpour the day before. It proved to be the best decision as it was overflowing! We went to a nice little cafe before going to the falls and the lady who is a local said she has never...More

We were there during winter and the views were amazing. Most of the park was closed but we still could get close to the waterfall and take nice pictures. We did not have to pay anything. We also took our dog there, so this is...More

I did this as part of the "Country" bus tour. The visitor center was closed in November and the walkways were a bit snow-covered but it was a beautiful sunny day and fantastic walking across the bridge. In the dead of winter the spray creates...More

I realize that visiting the Montmorency falls in November is not prime time, but it was still beautiful. Despite the cable car, and zip line, and everything else being closed, the bridges and walkways around the falls were open (though some were icy!) and allowed...More

A natural site a short drive from Quebec City, these falls are breathtaking. A lovely restaurant next to the falls with an excellent gift shop make this visit very pleasant. Visitors can walk on well maintained paths to a suspension bridge which straddles the falls....More

We visited Chute-Montmorency as part of our cruise excursion. Very pretty and great photo opt. We didn't take the tram due to time constraints and long wait. They have do have snacks, drinks and gift shop. Good visit.

An impressive waterfall with great views from the suspension bridge. Also the free museum made it very interesting, learning about the history of trades in the area. Even in the pouring rain we really enjoyed our time here =)

Riding the gondola up and down would be perfect and the trail to the bridge overlooking the falls is gentle and an easy stroll. The stairs up and down however are quite steep and might be quite strenuous for some.
