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.

“Taller than Niagara”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 5, 2013

Montmorency Falls is stupendous..... Catching the first glimpse of it as you leave Quebec City is something to exclaim over and as you get nearer the majesty grows in proportion!
I have yet to make it to the top of the falls but some day I will!!

“Best during winter”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 5, 2013

Just look at the pictures taken during the winter. Look at them! Just put on a big coat, good boots and enjoy.
The public bus can take maximim 2 hours to get there from the old city. Consult the timetables, some express bus can get you there quicker.

If you have a car there is plenty of parking space. And being there, drive 15 minutes east and visit the Saint-Anne cathedral.

“Incredible”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 29, 2013

Alright, i've seen a lots of waterfall during my trips but THIS one, was something...i can't even find words to describe.
It's november and the water starts freezing, it was breath taking!
The steps though were though, you have to be in a good condition if you wanna reach the top, but the view is awesome up there.
Perfect spot to chill with your girlfriend, really romantic! ;-)

“Beautiful”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 28, 2013

This Waterfall is not as commercialized as Niagara Falls, although it is just as beautiful. It is much taller, although significantly calmer than Niagara. Prepare to walk significant distance to a waterfall. It was very nice to walk on the bridge right over the waterfall

“Magnificient”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 26, 2013

It is definitely worth a trip to Montmorency Falls Park. Spectacular views, the fall is higher than Niagara and the surrounding is so natural. There is a cable car to go up, take a camera. There are few look out points where you can take uninterupted photos of the falls.
