Parc de la Chute-Montmorency, Quebec City

4.5
#1 of 105 in Nature in Quebec
Look down over Quebec's highest cascade from atop a suspension bridge at Parc de la Chute-Montmorency. Plunging from a height of 83 m (272 ft), the falls stand 30 m (98 ft) taller than the more famous Niagara Falls. During the colder months, the falls feature a cone of ice known as the Sugar Loaf at their base. Ride a zipline or walk along a clifftop trail in the surrounding park; feel free to bring food with you for a picnic. For travelers who use our custom trip planner, Quebec City holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Parc de la Chute-Montmorency and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

  • A beautiful fall which is higher than Niagara. Impressive deck passage but which offers a magnificent view. The path is really nice... with a lot of markets.

  • Parked at the bottom of the falls. You can walk close to the falls for free. It was great. There are wooden stairs if you want to go to the top. Also a lift that goes up. We couldn't find the parking lot at the top. There is a suspension bridge over the falls. Can spend a couple of hours easily here.
  • Gorgeous falls! A must see if you are travelling to Quebec City. We were there on Canada Day and spent a lot more time there than we were expecting too. The park is a beautiful place to have a picnic, and the sights are spectacular. If you are going on a very hot day, be sure to go up on the platform right at the base of the falls. Warning: you will get wet! The mist rains down on you, and is nice and cool. I have also been in the winter time at the top of the falls, and it is still an extraordinary sight to see. Will come back again someday.
