The Best Things to See and Do in Quebec City


6. Parc de la Chute-Montmorency

Located between the rivers and the cliffs this natural wonder is one of the hottest spots to visit in Quebec City. Towering 83 meters high Montmorency Falls is one of the provinces most spectacular sights and dominates the landscape for miles. Accessible year round this park can be explored by foot or cable car and its beauty is impressive both in the winter and the summer. Wintertime brings a freeze to the falls and creates a stunning sugarloaf; a frozen cone of ice at the base of the falls. Ice climbers can often been seen climbing up the frozen falls.

On the other hand summertime brings plenty of lush green grass, breathtaking flora and suspended footbridges to cross. Trails run throughout the park and range from 0.5km to 3km long. For the visitor wanting some extra exercise there are 487 stairs to be climbed from the bottom to the top of the park. A cable car ride will also transport visitors up and down the park. The estate house contains a small museum and eatery or choose to pack a picnic and enjoy the tables available to use. Visitors will spend the day exploring the numerous trails and magnificent views; no matter what season they may visit.
