Montmorency Falls Park (Parc de la Chute-Montmorency) Tours

Higher than Niagara Falls, the impressive Montmorency Falls stand 272 feet (83 meters) tall and serve as the centerpiece of Montmorency Falls Park (Parc de la Chute-Montmorency). The site is a year-round destination for visitors to Quebec City and Montreal, offering an array of outdoor activities and the stunning sight of the falls, which form at the mouth of the Montmorency River and drop over a cliff into the St. Lawrence River.

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, where you can 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 in summer, while winter travelers can take part in snowshoeing and ice climbing here.

Things to Know Before You Go
  • Fees apply for the cable car, ziplining, via ferrata access, and snowshoe rentals.
  • Food is offered at the cable car station, at Manoir Montmorency, and at La Terrasse du Manoir.
  • The park features three playgrounds for kids.
  • Much of the park is wheelchair accessible, although only some of the viewing platforms can be reached by wheelchair.

How to Get There
The falls are located on the boundary between Beauport and Boischatel, about 7.5 miles (12 kilometers) from the heart of Old Quebec. The site offers two paid parking lots, one below the falls and another above the falls. To reach Montmorency Falls by car, take Autoroute 20 northeast from Montreal to Quebec City. Then take Autoroute 440 east out of Quebec City.

When to Get There
One might think think Montmorency Falls is only nice to visit in the summer, but the park is actually suitable as 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.
