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.

Lovely waterfall. We climbed the steps to go to the top and the view was superb. The walkway across the fall gave a beautiful view of the fall and the St.Lawrence river. Nice place to visit.

Hiked the stairs and across the falls - what a gorgeous place. Not very busy on the long weekend, looked like they weren’t quite open for the season but that was to our advantage as it was not crowded!

Great day trip to this area! You can easily spend 3 hours here! There is plenty of walking! I would love to return and go zip lining across the falls! The ride you can take to go back to the top is awesome!

We really enjoyed our trip to the falls. It was a substantial walk to the top via a series of staircases, but the view was beautiful. The bridge across the falls was really cool. The park at the top was beautiful in itself. Well worth...More

Well worth a trip out to this park to see the falls. Excellent views of the falls, but you couldn't pay me to get on that zipline.

Ok, it might be known for the fall, but it has a very nice park on the top with a lot of green area. As far as I heard, it´s taller than Niagara, but the volume... you cannot compare. Anyway, it was worth going there...More

Hi, I was there in early April and it doesn't operate until the summer months so I couldn't tell you. However If you go to the website I'm sure you can ask them directly. Thanks
