Parc de la Chute-Montmorency is located just minutes from Quebec City. Between river and cliffs, it is one of the most spectacular sites in the province. At 83 meters high, 30 meters higher than Niagara Falls, the imposing Montmorency Falls dominate the landscape. We discover it on foot, by cable car or from Montmorency Manor. For the more active, a double zipline with a length of 300 meters, the via ferrata, a hike on rock face, promises some adrenaline rushes and a breathtaking view. Accessible in any season, the place is also magical winter.

In very cold weather, the fine splashes projected by the fall freeze and eventually form the famous Sugar Loaf, an impressive cone of ice, at its foot. An illumination highlights the entire bay of the park. Discover this place as impressive

In winter, hikers use the trails on foot or snowshoes. Go through the park's bay and admire the waterfall from several points of view. In this snow scenery, she continues to flow with strength. Maybe there will be some ice climbing enthusiasts in action on the frozen walls ...

The veil of the Bride The name "Veil of the Bride" is very old and is often intimately linked to the legend of the White Lady, found in many places in the world. It is said that his veil was blown away by the wind and settled on the rocks. When the people of Côte-de-Beaupré passed by the next day, a new waterfall had appeared. It was called the Veil of the Bride. She is still there, just to the left of the fall. The small manor of Sault Montmorency Benson-Hall Coast 63 Benson-Hall Coast Beauport, Quebec G1C 2L7

The suspension bridge The panoramic stairway to climb to the top of the falls and the suspension bridge is closed in winter. This is not a problem. A nice path to the right of the site, which may require snowshoes in the wake of a snowfall, allows you to climb quietly through the woods. Above, some panels evoke the Battle of Montmorency. The suspension bridge is often covered with frost, which gives it a magical appearance. It gives a bird's eye view of the falls and the constant struggle between the tumultuous waters and the ice that is trying to form.

For a good physical exercise, take the panoramic staircase of 487 steps leading from the bottom to the top of the park. Clinging to the side of the cliff, it will allow you to see and hear the force fall.

Paths from 0.5 km to 3 km crisscross the park. Travel through them to observe the falls and the sights of the site from multiple angles. Through the cliff walk, you will reach the suspension bridge and feel the thunder of the fall rumbling under your feet. Exceptional panoramas are waiting for you! In very cold weather, the fine splashes projected by the fall freeze and eventually form the famous Sugar Loaf, an impressive cone of ice, at its foot. For the return, take the walk to the Manor because the panoramic staircase is not accessible in winter.

The river has its source in the Réserve faunique des Laurentides, 80 km north of Quebec City. The head zone of this river is close to the watershed between the Jacques-Cartier, Montmorency River and Malbaie rivers. The Montmorency River runs from north to south for a length of about 97 km1. Its watershed covers about 1,100 km2 of three-quarters of forested and largely uninhabited land. The main resource is logging. Only the lower part of its course is inhabited. Close to its mouth, at the edge of the cities of Quebec and Boischatel, the river crosses a fault line and forms the famous Montmorency Falls. A little upstream from the Montmorency Falls, a small hydroelectric dam, the natural Marche station, which belongs to a private company, provides electricity to the municipality of Boischatel.

The sugar loaf Fine splashes are deposited at the bottom of the Montmorency Falls and freeze in very cold weather, gradually forming a cone of ice, called the sugar loaf. The highest cone was formed in March 1829: it was 38.4 m high. At the time, we even had a snack bar inside. Today, a wide path can walk to the sugar loaf and admire the phenomenon closer. However, it is necessary to dress warmly and not to fear the spray.
