Overview
More
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 Italian 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 rock face 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 fiance during the Montmorency Battle in 1759. Guided tours are offered in French or English until Labour Day weekend.

We have been to Niagara Falls and wowed by those and still were not let down by this sight! It is absolutely beautiful even when there is still lots of ice caked around the lower area. I wish it was warmer so we could've explored...More

Even though it was a cold rainy April day, this was worth seeing. I'd love to see it in nice weather with the cable car in action. I would love to see someone else do the zip line!

These falls were quite impressive. There were several vantage points from where you can observe the falls: above them on a suspension bridge and from various points along an adjacent cliff. Each point can give you a different perspective. There are some near by walking...More

We saw the falls on a rainy and windy day. It was not the best conditions but the falls were amazing just the same. The water rushing down is so powerful. The falls are taller than Niagara Falls but narrower. They are worth the visit.

We viewed the falls from all three levels. It was amazing. The bridge over the falls was the best part. It was very crowded but we are glad we went to see it.

It's possibly more beautiful in the winter than any other time of year. Many good viewing points. Partly frozen, with gigantic icicles. Two ice climbers were inching their way up one side of the falls. They must be crazy. I... More
