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 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.

Worth a visit, but be sure to dress warm in winter months.

After reading some reviews, I was skeptical about these falls. We walked up the stairs on the right side, and were really up close and personal. We didn't do the cable car or drive to the top, but I'm sure it be a nice view from there too. It's really like 15 minutes outside of Quebec City. Definitely stop by for just a few minutes if you can.

We've been here several times and still enjoy it. The falls are spectacular and we enjoy walking down the 400+ steps on the side and especially going by way of the Spray area. What an experience!

We spent an afternoon here. Lunch at the restaurant - decent food, slow service and overpriced for what you got. But the falls made it all worth it. We took the cable car down to the lower level. Just an amazing sight - the power of Mother Nature. We then decided to burn off lunch by walking UP the stairs, probably 30 stories of them. But with lots of rest breaks to take in the sights from the various viewpoints, it was worth it. There's also a suspension bridge over the falls that gives a differen point of view.

Impressive waterfall, nice hotel at the top, a cool suspension bridge - well worth the $12.00 tram ride to go up the mountain. Very BC-like
