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.

Montmorency falls is a nice little treat not too far from city. We went on a bus tour but I would recommend going just there. We didn't have time to do cable car. Lots of walking if you want or just a nice stroll, you can pick. We ate at the manor. Very good.

Not as wide as Niagara, but one and a half times higher, these are very attractive falls. You have to pay to get parked, but we parked outside and walked along a trail for free. There is a cable car that will take you up to an area near the top of the falls or you can walk along the... More

Only 10 minutes by car from downtown Québec city, You'll find the great Montmorency Falls. Don't take the car inside because you must pay the parking,( something i found ridiculous!). So I left it outside the entrance of the Falls and just walked 10 minutes to get inside. It's worth a visit but you must walk a little bit to... More

Just a short ride outside of Quebec City, are these gorgeous natural falls...we drove, although there are several tours you can take here by bus as well as getting there on a public bus. Beautiful natural falls...not as large as Niagara, but much higher. There is a funicular (incline) to ride to the top of the falls, although you can... More

Visited on a very cold, windy day but it was a wonderful walk filled with some great history! The bridge was a little scary for me, but what a view!

We timed our trip during the fall colors and the view of the falls with a backdrop of red, orange and yellow was spectacular.

These falls may not be as remarkable as Niagara, but they are elegant and beautiful -- and easy to access. Well worth the trip.

The water fall is impressive with height of one and half times over Niagara Falls. There is beautiful surrounding scenery too. Best time to visit and snapping photos will be in the morning as sun light is shining right at the water fall giving spectacular view. At certain angle of view you can see rainbow over the water – beautiful!

Beautiful falls with trail around the park. We parked at the restaurant at the top, walked the trail around the park and took the tram back up. Lots of play space for kids to run around and get sprinkled from the falls. Two playgrounds, one is in the middle of apple trees. Restaurant was okay but nothing to seek out.

Visited the Falls on an excursion from the cruise ship. There wasn’t enough time to take you time to photograph the falls. As you face the falls we were on the left hand side. Very crowded and photo opportunities were limited. The best views and photo opportunities would be from the right side. We didn’t have time to view the... More
