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.

Amazing view

Very nice picturesque site. Best time to visit it is winter, you can approach much closer than if you can in summer. Also the mist is less spread when colder.

A very nice place to visit summer or winter. Highter than Niagara Falls and partly frozen in winter. Nice ice climbing in the winter

The falls are beautiful. Nice outting even in the winter. See them from the suspension bridge. Great place to take photographs.

We stopped here on a bus tour for a quick view while returning to Maine during Quebec Carnaval. The falls, at 276 feet tall, are the highest in Quebec province, and are located 12 km outside the city. They are spectacular indeed! They are located in a park surrounding the falls, which is the main attraction. Up close you can... More

This is such a fun day trip from Quebec! Our teenager son loved it. We all got dripping wet from walking not even close from the falls!

We stopped by to take the tram to the top of the falls and walk across the bridge. Little did we know that the Tram is seasonal so it certainly was not available in February. BUT...the lake at the base of the falls was frozen and visitors were making the trek across the lake where visitors could get a unique... More

Only had a short time here but it is well worth the walk to the falls. We went late evening so not much open for food, drinks, etc.

we caught the bus out here which only took 30 mins or so. The falls are absolutely amazing and whilst they dont match Niagra, they are spectacular. The only disconcerting thing was that the Park at the bottom of the falls was closed and the gates werent open to get in, albeit maost people just jumped the gate to wander... More

The falls are amazingly powerful, especially after a rainstorm. There is a good visitor's center for those not wishing to walk out in the rain or be splashed by the falls. It has a nice gift shop and coffee shop. But get wet anyway and walk out toward the base of the falls. If time permits, the stairs that go... More

Took the gondola down because being tourists I didn't realize if you just parked at th bottom you can access the falls for free. The gondola was cool you get to go over the falls and see just how tall they are. Not much time could be spent here unless you wish to climb the paths. Easily accessible from the... More
