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.

We visited these falls by accident as we didn't get off the bus where we were supposed to, but what a sight. They are magnificent, second in height only to Niagara and although the surrounding area is not as commercially developed, it is still well worth the visit. On the day on which w visited, there was a wedding taking... More

Beautiful to see. Yes higher than Niagara Falls and certainly not as expansive but worth the short drive from Quebec City and right across from Ile d'orleans, also worth driving. We started at the top parking/reception area and crossed the Falls and climbed down the many, many tiers of stairs to the lower parking/reception area. We did not have to... More

We saw the falls by boat and they are breathtaking and visible from quite a distance. The St Lawrence widens here from its narrow position by old historic Quebec City. Suggest the boat trip.

We went on an organised tour to the Falls. We had time to take the lift to the bottom, walk around and then return to the top. Great views. The trip also included other places and was worth a half day trip

We were on a tour and so had a limited time to visit. There is a chance to walk up/down a series of steps but with the time we had, it was not possible for me to do that.

Don't get me wrong, the Montmorency Falls are beautiful! But i wouldn't say that it is a must do when you are in Quebec. The whole area around the falls is extremely touristy and it takes away from the magic of it. They have a zip line set up right in front of the falls that obstructs the view of... More

Lovely view and water rush you feel on a chilly day at that The rush of the falls give an experience fathomed if you get to feel it. Fantabulous ride atop the falls

This place is cool. The cable car up to the top lets you see Quebec City and Isle d Orleans, once at the top the foot bridge over the falls affords the most spectacular views. Higher than Niagara falls and every bit as impressive.
