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.

While in Quebec City we went to the falls and hiked the trails. It is really quite a sight. One suggestion would be to pack a basket of Wine & Cheese for a snack.

I was led to believe that the Montmorency Falls were taller than Niagara Falls, and maybe they are, but they lack the majesty of Niagara. It is interesting to see the falls from the bottom. Glad that we made the short drive from Old Quebec...More

Easily accessible by bus from Old Quebec even in late fall. Breathtaking views, lovely hikes nearby, worth the trip.

Our tour bus stopped here briefly. It's beautiful at night.....lit up in colors. Nice stop. There's nothing else to do here at night---just enjoy the falls.

This is Mother Nature at her most powerful. You can take a public bus (800) and it takes you right there. Buy the 24 hour bus pass and you can use it all day. No need for Big Bus.

It's possibly more beautiful in the winter than any other time of year. Many good viewing points. Partly frozen, with gigantic icicles. Two ice climbers were inching their way up one side of the falls. They must be crazy. I... More
