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.

“WOW!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 24, 2012

I love waterfalls, but these are amazing. I went a few years ago to watch the fireworks competition. And then I went again in the winter. its so different, but still beautiful.

“Incredible sight to see, especially in the Winter”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 21, 2012

Very much worth the trip to see in the Winter. Ice climbers working their way up the side, while the falls are roaring away only a short distance away.

“Falls”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 17, 2012

It was winter so there weren't a lot of people. We went up to the hotel and hiked over the falls. It was an experience to see all that frozen water.

“Grand Scale!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 12, 2012

We went on a cold rainy day but the falls were pretty impressive, the sheer force of the water going over the falls is awesome. Prepare for quite a walk down stairs if you decide to go by way of the East side. There is a tram but it's quite expensive, parking is expensive too. The restaurant on top is ok but usually filled with tour bus tours.
