Overview

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 italien 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 rockface 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 fiancé during the Montmorency Battle in 1759. Guided tours are offered in French or English until Labour Day weekend.

The park is really cool with a great hike around the falls. There was a small exhibit in the house which was nice, but otherwise it's pretty crowded for not a whole lot of activity. I would avoid parking in their lot, it's expensive and...More

Rent a car and visit Chute Montmorency - it's worth the trip. The falls are taller than Niagara (not as wide, obviously). Plenty to do at the park between hiking, picnic, visit the old Inn/cafe, walk the suspension bridge, zip line, and more. TIP: take...More

You still have to pay to park in either location but if you set your GPS for Manoir Montmorency you will be lead to the top of the falls and its a very easy walk across to the falls rather than the $15 cable car...More

It is a nice stop over. We did not have much time but it is really pretty and spectacular. We would definitely recommend to anyone who is up for some hiking. Do it all on foot and forget the gondola.

Sorry for the delay in responding. The bridge over the falls is quite close (walking distance). Let me know if I did not answer your question. Yes I believe taxis were plentiful. We had our own car.

You could see everything with or without a wheelchair, except I don't know if you will be able to cross the bridge.

Some people are nervous about the bridge - it isn't for everyone - but don't let that keep you from visiting! You can still enjoy the views even if you aren't ready to cross the bridge.
