Canada Attractions / Landmarks / Places > Quebec City Email This Bookmark Print
Located just a few minutes from Old Qu?bec, the Parc de la Chute-Montmorency is a popular scenic attraction. At 84 meters (275 ft) high, (and 150 feet wide) the Montmorency Falls are the highest in the province of Quebec and 30 m (98 ft) higher than Niagara Falls.

The falls are at the mouth of the Montmorency River where it drops over the cliff shore into the Saint Lawrence River, opposite the western end of the ?le d'Orleans.

There are staircases that allow visitors to view the falls from several different perspectives. A suspension bridge over the crest of falls provides access to both sides of the park as well as a spectacular view. There is also an aerial tram (Funitel) that carries passengers between the base and the top of the falls. In the summer the park hosts an international fireworks competition with the falls as a backdrop.

At the top of the cliff sits the elegant Manoir Montmorency, which houses a fine dining restaurant, the Kent House bistro, a gift shop and an interpretation centre. Open year-round.
