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.

“Spectacular Montmorency Falls”
Reviewed June 25, 2013

Just outside Québec City, Canada, is the spectacular Montmorency Falls. Definitely worth the time and effort to get there. The view from below, beside or above is thrilling. There is a little bridge a the top of and over the falls with incredible views of the falls. The bridge is scary so if you have trouble with heights, perhaps you should stay on the path and enjoy the falls from there. If you take a cruise on the MV Louis-Jolliet on the St. Lawrence river you will catch a beautiful view of the falls.

“La chute formidible”
Reviewed June 24, 2013

After seeing Niagara Falls any waterfall is more appealing; unless volume of water, crowds and tacky commercialism are your yardstick. This one was no exception, although man made. Easy access - great rush of water up close and personal.

Plan on getting a workout if you take the stairs up and down. Find the small path along the bank for another spectacular view. We took the 800 bus to get there. Very easy. Bring a packed lunch--restaurant not worth the price.
A definite must

“Amazing! Thrilling!”
Reviewed June 24, 2013

I loved every minute of it, the falls are amazing! Getting up on that bridge over the falls was scary and thrilling, I ran away afterwards but I would definitely do it again! It was beautiful! Next time I have to go down using the stairs, they looked like something out of a movie.

“Hidden treasures”
Reviewed June 23, 2013

The entire park is so spectacular! Two surprises we found while walking...a sous chef cutting herbs in a garden behind the Kent House, and the historical site Venzina just outside of the park...a home frome the 17th century that has been restored. The falls themselves are amazing, but look for the hidden treasures, also!
