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.

The falls are very pretty- in winter all frozen! There is a suspension bridge that goes right over the falls letting you look straight down and out to the st Laurence river giving some very nice views. It's easy to get to from Quebec City- just take the 800 bus from several stops in the city and it takes about... More

The waterfalls in winter are beautiful. Easy trails and paths to walk to get different views. Some areas are shut down during the winter but still worth seeing. Good for people of all ages.

I was recently here and spent about an hour here with a large group and a guide. It was a very informative time and the views were awesome. It was very nice in the winter time, especially because the temperature wasn't too cold. I can only imagine how beautiful it is in the summer time. A lot of history here... More

The river is frozen in winter and you can walk up to the base of the waterfall. It's beautiful! There is a visitor's center which has amenities and snacks, but it closes at 4pm. Only a short drive from Quebec City, well worth the visit!

Nice place to stop and visit, it wont take you more then 1-2 hours to get to the top & see the falls, i can imagine in summer its much more enjoyable as you can have a picnic/tan/read a book. i recommande.

Neat place to visit in the winter when much of the falls are frozen. Walking above the falls to take pictures is fantastic.

Worth the money. It was the last week of December, and there was snow on the ground with the falls partially frozen.
