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.

“Great side trip”
Reviewed October 24, 2013

Montmorency may not be the tallest nor the widest but if you like waterfalls then this is really worth a visit. A good walk up to the bridge gives you a great view over the falls and of the surrounding area and unlike some waterfalls you are in very close proximity. Afterwards take the cable car to the bottom and enjoy a walk to the wet zone and get a free shower and the falls are quite impressive from that view. Not all waterfalls are the same, from tiny mountain streams to raging torrents they all have a character of their own.

“Montmorency Falls”
Reviewed October 23, 2013

Unfortunately when I visited the Falls, the Fall colors were nearly finished. The parking lot that I feel would have offered the best vistas was closed. Due to a knee problem, I was reluctant to attempt the walk which would have provided good views. I did however get some pretty decent photos, and very much enjoyed the day in spite of the off and on again rain.

“High on the Hill”
Reviewed October 23, 2013

Large waterfall with a nice little climb to the top, lots of scenery to look at. But, if you've seen one waterfall, you have seen them all. This is a price gouging type of stop during a tour that we took to see the out skirts of Quebec City and we stopped to see this along with stops at St. Anns Cathedral and Orleans island. Don't waste your money, I believe they charged 10 bucks each to take the lift to the top.

“Montmorency Falls”
Reviewed October 23, 2013

Although not as impressive as Niagara Falls, anyone not having been to Niagara would be duly impressed. One is able to walk up the height of the falls via the 477 or so stairs or for a small fee take the gondola up the mountain to the top. That day my knees prevented us from doing the walk but the gondola ride let us see the falls from a great advantage. At the top we then were able to walk out above the falls to look down, and there you could feel the power of the water.

“Fabulous views”
Reviewed October 22, 2013

Recently went to Montmorency Falls September 2013. The overall grounds were beautiful and well kept. The tram ride up was fun for young and old, and it was a nice way to get to the top. I heard there was staircase to come back down if you didn't purchase a round trip ticket, but it looks like a hike!
The top offered great views, and the walkway to the falls offered great views of the St Lawrence River. We enjoyed the bridge over the falls. The stairs can be too much for someone who isn't very active, but otherwise it is a great attraction when visiting Quebec City!
