  • This canyon lets you do as much or as little walking as you want. you do not have to do the hard steps which are very steep. you can cross over the water on a suspension bridge and come back up the ot...  more »
  • I definitely recommend this canyon. We stopped here en route from Quebec to La Malbaie and so glad we did. We walked around the loop of the canyon, taking time to stop and admire the awesome scenery. ...  more »
  • We were looking for something to do outdoors on a beautiful, sunny day in Quebec City. We drove an hour north along the St. Lawrence to Canyon Sainte-Anne. Our fear of heights kept us off the zip line...  more »

  • The good news is that the stunning natural beauty of the canyon has been cleverly and sympathetically enhanced with a network of walkways, stairs and bridges which bring it to life. Very well done and great fun to explore and enjoy with both the Air Canyon zip line and the via Ferrata wire walk for the less faint hearted. Pricing is sensible and staff are friendly and efficient. The only slight bad news is the desperately forced activities for the kids which tie themselves in knots rather than just explaining the canyon, the flora and fauna and the experience. The sculpture trail is inexplicable and weird but hey, that’s art right ? If you do take a trip on Air Canyon then enjoy - queues from the front of the tented area take about an hour. Just to respond to Marion below, I don’t think the wait is too long simply encourage you to plan for it !
  • What a great hike in the area. my kids and i had good time hiking. we would of love to try the rock climbing but maybe on our next trip that looked really fun to do. the waterfall was amazing to see with rainbow. we did the 187stairs down what must come down must come up. going up took us a little longer with one or two breaks. the Air Canyon was good exciting thing to do for the kids to check out...its about 1 hour 30min hike or less for some.
  • The canyons feature breathtaking views and stunning waterfalls. There are numerous stopping points and bridges as well where you can take photos. It’s not too far from Quebec City which makes it very convenient to stop by for a few hours - highly recommend it.
  • Gorgeous day out with our family. Paths are really well maintained and clean. I highly recommend. Worth the entrance fee.
  • In their website, hours show till 6pm. and with tiny words says enter by 5pm. Which is nonsense, they should just indicate only 5pm. Anyway I reached there at 4:57pm, the entrance was already closed. I asked the employee why the gate is closed, and he responded that it's already 5pm. But when I reached and talked to him was at 4:57pm, they surely closed earlier. I asked them to let me enter because its still before 5pm and drove for 3 hours to get there. He said "the gate's closed." That was really pitty especially after 3 hours of driving. I don't want you to have the same experience like me, so please don't go there in last minutes and go there early.
