Overview
More
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 Italian 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 rock face 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 fiance during the Montmorency Battle in 1759. Guided tours are offered in French or English until Labour Day weekend.

Have to be in good shape. A lot of walking. You do have the option of taking the cable car down and up the falls. We chose to go down the many, many stairs. You can go zip lining, but not that brave.

Montmorency Falls is the main attraction of Parc de la Chute Montmorency. The falls magnificent, you can view them from many locations in the park including a foot bridge. I would suggest getting to the park early as the park is a very popular attraction....More

Great views of waterfall from many angles. Many stairs to climb or need to take tram. Nice luncheon place at the top. Good menu and good local beer. Zip lining and rock climbing available.
