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.

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.

Half-Day Trip to Montmorency Falls and Ste-Anne-de-Beaupré from Quebec city
Jean was a great guide and very knowledgeable. Stops at the chocolate shop and waterfalls were great. However, the church closed early due to an order from the diocese and we were unable to go inside. All in all it was great trip.

Private Bike Tour to Montmorency Falls
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.

We loved the falls. I would recommend more time at that spot. The church was really interesting. I would of liked an expert at the church to give some of its history. The island was adorable…. Chocolate was overpriced.

Electric bike Tour to Montmorency Falls from Quebec City
This was a great half day tour for our family of four. Paul was an excellent guide who provided us with some great history and background about Quebec City and the port. We were the only people that booked for this afternoon so we had great attention from our guide. The bike path was well maintained and paved and the ride to the Falls was easy for us. This was a great break from all the walking we did through Old Quebec for the last two days. Due to covid, the line up for the gondola was very long so we did not go to the top and instead, just enjoyed the view from the bottom on the lovely wooden platform. It would have been nice to up go and along the suspension bridge, but we didn't think the wait to go up and come back down again was worthwhile. Paul took us to a few different neighbourhoods on the way back as we had some extra time and we enjoy bike riding as a family. We are very happy that we booked this bike tour.

Half-Day Trip to Montmorency Falls and Ste-Anne-de-Beaupré from Quebec city
The Basilica was absolutely incredible. Massive! One of the most ornate churches I have ever been in. Gorgeous mosaics. The waterfall is pretty especially when the lights are shining on it. We enjoyed the copper museum as well. Not impressed with the chocolate from the shop, but I guess it is off season.

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.
