Owner description: 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.

this is a wonderful way to appreciate the falls and the outdoors. Climb with a guide and get a little exercise while site setting. Inquiries at le Manoir.

“A bit expensive for what you see”
Reviewed 2 July 2014

The falls are highly developed, with payment ($11.50) required for entrance plus additional $15 if you choose to take the gondola. The falls itself was quite massive, but I am not sure it is worth the cost. Much of the falls can be seen from a distance from the highway.

“Not to be missed”
Reviewed 1 July 2014

Taller than Niagara Falls by 30m. A good site to visit. Travel by cable car up to the information office / shop / museum. A very interesting and informative place. Then take the bridge and cross the falls, directly above them. Once on the other side you can see Quebec City and stand at the vantage point the Generals used in their battles 250 years ago. There is a stairway down to the bottom of the falls but this was closed when we visited due to damage caused by the severe winter.

“Beautiful place!”
Reviewed 1 July 2014

Beautiful place! Nice way to spend a couple hours. Be prepared to climb stairs! lots and lots of them! There is a funicular too, but the view is less spectacular than from the panoramic stairs.

“Very easy diversion”
Reviewed 1 July 2014

With a rental car it is a quick 10 minute drive from old town Quebec. Skip the gondola and just drive up to the top and pay for parking. The road up is not marked well but if you ask at the entrance to the parking at the bottom you can pay for parking there and get directions. Use the receipt at the top. I am very afraid of heights so thought I would be sitting in the car while the family did the bridge but it was so sturdy and not that much up and down that I was able to manage it easily.
