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. « less

i went to the Park in the beginning of February, and this winter was specially cold, so most of the waterfall and the river was frozen and covered in ice and snow. I walked on the icy river, just up to the water fall. It was an amazing experience. But keep in mind that this is something you can only... More

Beautiful view of St-Laurence river and a cute little bridge just over the falls. You can take a long run from there on bicycle path to go to the centertown. Great view to Orleans Islands, quiet park with an old manor and a tasty brunch. On the upper part of the falls, you can walk all along the river to... More

We loved our trip to the falls. It was quite cold and we were not able to go down to the bottom, but we had a very sunny day and snow and ice made everything quite spectacular. We spent a total of an hour enjoying the area and taking photos. It was an easy 35-minute bus ride from QC.

A great place to visit but in the winter, most of it is closed including the cable car. Enjoyed walking over the bridge which goes over the top of the falls.

We got to Montmorency Falls from the Quebec centre by bus 800 direction Beauport. The trip took about 35 minutes. Then we had to walk about 10 minutes and that's it. It is amazing that so close to the city you can find such thing. We saw it twice, during a frosty day and at night. The surrounded view is... More

The trip to the falls was worth the time and drive. We traveled as two families of four with two couples each with kids ranging from 8 to 12. We didn't rent a car, so we took a taxi and caravanned. From Old Quebec City Chateau Frontenac, it was about 20 minutes and $25. The lower area was closed and... More

Montmorency Falls are amazing. We parked up the top and walked across the bridge and then walked down the amazing stair case. The falls were amazing with rainbows coming sparkling in the light. Great photo opportunities.

It's an impressive waterfall, worth the short trip from Quebec City. I've visited in summer (including for a fireworks display as part of an international competition, which was really great) and during the winter. There is a good cafe/restaurant if you take the cable car from the base to the top. I found it more interesting to visit in the... More

Well, it was cold, but amazing. We hiked through the whole park on the top of the falls, and made snow angels in the snow! The gondola was closed during the weekdays, so we didn't get to take it. I would advise dressing warmly in the winter if you go because temps drop to -20 celsius.

Stunning, beautiful views from above and below, many locations to stop and take pictures along the way or see from the bridge above. Unfortunately, the cable cars were not functioning when we visited.
