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.

Parc de la Chute-Montmorency Reviews

La chute est jolie à voir mais sans plus. Surtout que vous devez payer 20 dollars pour vous parquer et accéder au bas de la chute et que l’escalier est impraticable more »The fall is pretty to see but nothing more. Especially since you have to pay 20 dollars to leave and access to the bottom of the fall and that the stairs are impassable
An amazing natural wonder ... that we had no idea even existed. We were in Quebec city and did a quick google search one morning only to find this attraction less than an hour out of town. We thought at worst we'd get to explore la belle province a bit, but we were pleasantly surprised at what we found. Highly recommend walking down the huge staircase down the hill and then the gondola back up. A beautiful little chalet will greet you and then a walk across a bridge right over the falls. The best surprise of our trip!
Great place. We loved the waterfall and my kid had a good time around the park there. Nice long bridges to walk right above the water flow which is so nice to watch. Great place for landscape photographers
