Montmorency Falls Park is located just north of Quebec City. Easily accessible by the highway, you can visit the park in about an hour. If you want to stay longer, I would suggest taking a picnic and enjoying the sound of the falls.
At 83 meters high (30 meters higher than Niagara Falls but obviously not as large) visiting the falls has one very unique vantage point: you can stand on a suspension bridge right over the falls. That is something you cannot do in Niagara Falls.
If you want to take the time you can discover the falls “on foot, by cable car, or from the gourmet restaurant. It’s an ideal setting for a stroll after a business meeting or a reception. For the more active, the via ferrata, a hiking trail on a cliff, promises some adrenaline and breathtaking views.” as described on their website.
You can see that there is a way down some stairs on the opposite hill toward the bottom of the falls. It was stunning but on the day we went you had to climb down and back up the stairs.
Montmorency Falls Park is located at 5300 Boulevard Sainte-Anne, Quebec City, Quebec G1C 0M3, Canada 418-663-3330
