Canada is home to some pretty spectacular waterfalls, and without a doubt, Montmorency Falls is at the top of the list!

At a staggering height of 83 metres, Montmorency is one of the tallest waterfalls in the country.

It’s even taller than Niagara Falls, which has a vertical plunge of around 57 metres.

There are many ways that visitors can get up close and feel the power of these thundering falls.

In addition to a promenade below the falls, there is also a suspension bridge above the cascade, an observation deck, a panoramic staircase, and a cable car that takes you all the way to the top.

The observation deck takes you along a cliffside boardwalk to the bridge, where you can feel the roaring falls beneath your feet as you cross.

The cable car is a must-do during your visit to Montmorency, and we’ll tell you why.

Not only will you get to enjoy breathtaking views of the falls (even in the wintertime), but you’ll also see panoramic vistas of the St. Lawrence River, Île d’Orléans, and Québec City.

The ride up is only a few minutes long, but the journey is unforgettable. Tickets are $14.95 per adult, roundtrip.

Adventure enthusiasts can even zoom over the plunge pool on the double zip line which is 300 metres in the air!

And if you’re up for a challenge, there are three ferrata routes you can climb up the cliff.

Just a few minutes from downtown Québec City, these incredible falls are definitely worth a spot on your itinerary this summer.
