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.

Stopped in after our car tour of Isle D'Orleans. Falls are straight across the bridge from the island. You can park at the bottom area of the Falls or if you go further up the road you can be at the top. We parked at the bottom and walked on the pathway right to the bottom. About a ten minute...

We took a countryside bus tour, which stopped at the falls. The trip up the tram gives a great view and the walk to the bridge overseeing the falls was easy to navigate and provided a close up view and feel of the mists.

These were beautiful falls located very close to Quebec City. We took the cable car to and from the falls. They offer a family package that includes parking. Go early it gets pretty crowded.

Zip line if you are adventurous. Take the gondola or walk up. The walk up entails a lot of stairs. The falls are nice. You stand above them on a bridge. There's a park area to walk around.

Great hiking and stairs to climb. An amazing waterfall with a huge spray zone. Lift or climb to the top. Zipline across the falls.

Interesting natural attraction. One can take a cable car to the top and back for $25. On top is a nice restaurant and a walkway that crosses over the falls. Or one can climb a long stairway but you'd better be very fit!

We rode the cable cars up and back down. Walked up to the suspension bridge and it's just a beautiful waterfall. Lots of good people watching. Beautiful grounds and well-maintained. I would highly recommend to anyone

Great couple of hours...fantastic workout if you can make the climb. Very picturesque. Especially loved the photo op at the bottom of the falls-be prepared to get wet.

This natural waterfalls is a must see if you are in the Quebec City area. Take time to walk the bridge at the top of the falls and look down into the thunderous water flow.
