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

The falls were very impressive! We entered the lower lot and climbed the stairs along the cliffs to walk the suspension bridge. There were lots of people here and many places to stop and view the waterfall. Some of my group were fine with height others were a bit overwhelmed by how high the waterfall and cliffs around it were.... More

The falls aren't a long drive from Quebec. We rode the tram up rather than taking the stairs. The tram ends at the top near the old hotel which was very nice and had a restaurant with a view of the Ile d'Orleans. There was a short walk along a nice boardwalk to get to the falls. We walked across... More

Had five minutes, in a busy schedule, to stop and say "I've been there". Ended up spending half a day! Nice walk to base of falls and and even better ride to the top. Restaurant served wine! Lots of people having a great time.

If you have time, go see and walk around the park. We took bus 800 until the last stop (check RTC website).

We hit the falls July 25. I had read the other reviews and saw the signs about construction on the path but luckily it was done (well the path was back open the day we went but signs still up so I'm not sure if it changes daily.) When the path is closed if you park at the bottom you... More

A short drive from downtown Quebec and you come upon a amazing wonder! There falls are HUGE and eminently photograph-able! Plus there is a great bistro-restaurant-visitor's center. If you care to, you can hike to various scenic overlooks OR you can arrange a little bit rock climbing up the face of the Falls (or you can sit and watch, like... More

I just went to the beautiful Montmorency Falls this past weekend and was in awe. I personally enjoyed them more than niagara falls. They are taller and have a more natural look to them. Give yourself at least an hour, and be prepared to get wet if you want to get really close. Also be careful as the stairs can... More

Nice place to do ziplining and rock climbing. Falls were smaller then I expected. Indications to get to the ziplining place were terrible.

My husband and I visited the falls for a brief time on our way to Baie St. Catherine. I was disappointed by the falls. As stated in previous reviews, it is expensive to visit and really not worth it. In fact, you can see the falls from the highway driving by so there is no need to spend the $... More

A lovely place to visit but you will need a car or take a bus as we did, you can take a guided bus out as we did, you could spend most of the day there if you wanted as there is a large park land area there as well as the falls and bridges, you can all so climb... More
