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

We visited there in mid-March. The sun shining through the many ice formations was gorgeous. Technically, you are not supposed to be on the bridge but we hung on tight and had beautiful views of the St. Lawrence below. Given the level of snow and ice, the place was almost deserted. Haven't seen it in the summer but it was... More

The place is ranked very high so we decided to enter although the price for a family was almost 50$, very expensive for a pass time of an hour or two. The operators are very proud of the fact you can use the cable car as many times as you want, but even the little kids weren't interested in doing... More

We went in the middle of April and there was still plenty of snow on the grounds and lots of broken ice in the river. The falls are thoroughly impressive and it's a beautiful sight to behold. Parking was difficult to find given the lot was still closed, but worth the walk once you find a place out of the... More

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
