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.

Very nice park and beautiful view of the falls. It was kind of busy but definitely worth making plans to see it.

Short drive east of Quebec, and on the bus route if you want to park your car. Very high falls, and wonderful walks around and over the falls. If you wish, there is a zip line in front of the falls about 200 feet or...More

The falls are spectacular...just stunning. The hike from the bottom to the top is not for the faint of heart. It's over 400 stairs and then a walk past that to a small bridge and then a larger bridge. Also not for the faint of...More

Few minutes drive from downtown, it's a good spot to visit with family and friends. Try the gandola ride, the restaurant is little expensive but ok food.

It's taller than Niagara Falls and quite beautiful. You can drive to the top and after walking to the Cliffside Boardwalk viewpoints you can cross the suspension bridge and descend to viewpoints on the other side, then descend and walk to the cable car terminal...More

we took the tram ride up, then walk across the suspension bridge to get beautiful views. Would have done the zip line, but it wasn't operating on an early Sunday morning.

We visited the top of the falls, where in September we could park for free (unlike at the base of the falls). The track went over a bridge at the top of the falls and there were stairs down the side a short way so...More

Growing up on the prairies, I am a sucker for waterfalls. Very impressed by the overall experience at Montmorency. Be prepared to get wet if you do take the stairs to the bottom, but the view is worth it!

Riding the gondola up and down would be perfect and the trail to the bridge overlooking the falls is gentle and an easy stroll. The stairs up and down however are quite steep and might be quite strenuous for some.
