Parc de la Chute-Montmorency

The Basics

One of Quebec City’s highlights, Montmorency Falls Park (Parc de la Chute-Montmorency) is often visited on city sightseeing tours and dedicated bike tours. For a close-up view of the waterfall, you can climb the 487-step mountainside staircase or take the fee-based cable car to the top.

Once there, cross a suspended bridge over the crest of the falls to access both sides of the park. In summer, adventurous travelers can go ziplining over Montmorency Falls or try out the park's via ferrata circuits, while winter travelers can take part in snowshoeing and ice climbing.

Very enjoyable ride to the Falls. Our guide Pierre made sure we were keeping up and made several stops on the way to tell us facts about the sites. He showed us everything at the Falls and we took our time to enjoy it. Highly recommend.

Half-Day Trip to Montmorency Falls and Ste-Anne-de-Beaupré from Quebec city
It was a nice visit. We enjoyed it greatly. The Chocolate factory was a nice stop as it was very picturesque. I would skip the stop at the Copper art and would allow more time at the falls or the Basilica.

When to Get There

Montmorency Falls is a year-round attraction. Ziplining is offered from May to October, and if you’re visiting in July or August, you can try out the via ferrata circuits or catch the international fireworks competition that takes place at the park. In winter, the cable car still runs and the falls gain the famous "Sugarloaf," an impressive mound of ice that forms at the foot of the falls and sometimes reaches up to 98 feet (30 meters) tall.
