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.

Great half day tour near Quebec
Our guide was funny and wonderful. The tour was great and within expectations. The waterfall is the highlight of the tour and bring an extra jacket as it may get a bit windy

Half-Day Trip to Montmorency Falls and Ste-Anne-de-Beaupré from Quebec city
The entire trip was wonderful. Other reviews doubted the value of the chocolate shop stop and the copper atelier. Got wonderful chocolates. The copper store/ workshop was fascinating. Could have used more time at the Falls for those that wanted to take the cable car. We were told by our guide, Marcel, that there wouldn’t be time for that. I suggest cutting time from the Basilica and adding to the Falls. Lovely, personable guide.

Parc de la Chute-Montmorency Admission with Cable Car
Convenient parking, very cool cable car ride, gorgeous falls, very exciting suspension bridge right on top of the falls with fantastic view, amazing steps with lookout points to go down all the way to the base of the waterfall. Loved the boardwalk. Clean and well kept facility. Food on top was great with same price as any restaurant in the old city.

The falls, church and copper art stop are worth the trip. The commercial detour for ice cream and chocolate is not needed and adds little to the tour.

Our personal guide ‘Guy’ tailored our ride to our cycling experience finding extras places to explore as we went along. The use of the eBikes was a nice option even if we chose to keep it manual for the extra effort.

Half-Day Trip to Montmorency Falls and Ste-Anne-de-Beaupré from Quebec city
Great review and Jean was a great tour guide. He has been doing this for over 30 years and really adds a great perspective and additional information. He also has a great sense of humor. The best highlight was the Ste-Anne-de-Beaupre. Amazing architecture. You can sense the reverence of the place.

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.

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.
