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.

My wife and I had passed by Montmorency Falls and thought it might be "OK". Wow, am I glad we went back! There's no reason not to park at the bottom--the parking (entrance fee) fee was only $10--hey, they've got to raise a little money somehow. Then you will want to buy tickets for the tram ride to the top ($10 also) because those 447 steps plus the additional walking you will do on a path you are going to do anyway (coming back) make the price acceptable. And the views from the tram are worth it anyway. You do not want to get round trip tram tickets. First of all, even though the extra cost for a round trip is minimal, you want to walk down the stairs anyway because the tram goes up and down on the west side of the falls, then you walk across the top of the falls (very dramatic!) and down the stairs on the other side with many good views on the way down. We ate at the café at the top of the falls and were pleased to see decent food with good prices--not a ripoff like you might guess. But forget about the idea of eating with a beautiful view out the windows like the ads might show. That room is almost exclusively taken by large traveling groups. Sometimes you can fit in with a group that doesn't fill it up but guess what your chances are of getting a window table? Almost zero. So, instead, just eat at the café on the left (west) side of the building and don't worry about the views--you'll see enough of them after you eat. All in all a very beautiful experience that made the day a very special one on our vacation.

We paid $10.50 CAD to park and everything was free to enjoy. We went in and checked out the small historical information area inside the Manor and then ventured out to see the falls. We noticed we were able to take a bridge over the falls. Beautiful. Also you may take the stairs to the foot of the falls for another incredible view. They also offer a cable car but it is over priced. At the bottom of the stairs you may go to the left or the right if you go to the right you will get very wet! Our son got soaked from being right near the mist of the Falls. He claims this as being the highlight of his trip to Quebec City!

We enjoyed the walk around the falls back to the parking lot. We started from the upper lot and those who didn't walk picked us up in the lower lot. It wasn't too strenuous and not too long.
