Québec City is only 10 minutes by car from Parc de la Chute-Montmorency. Year-round, it's a real must-see. Let yourself be charmed by its little streets and historic buildings. Enjoy its many cultural activities and different restaurants. A little bit of Europe in North America!
The bridge to Orléans Island is just across from Montmorency Falls. It's an invitation to go there! The island is truly a garden for Québec City with its diversity of farm landscapes. It also has well preserved heritage and historic sites, not to mention delicious local produce.
East of the park is Côte-de-Beaupré-a shoreline region with a wide range of tourism attractions for lovers of culture, heritage, adventure, and nature. Drive along Route de la Nouvelle-France, visit museums and interpretation centres, and admire the rolling countryside. And for hikers, whatever their level of ability, 200 km of trails cut through this area.
Parc de la Chute-Montmorency is happy to welcome the Charlevoix Train to its station. This rail cruise takes passengers through a 140 kilometres of panoramic landscapes between Québec City and La Malbaie. Watch it head out of the station several times a week, or if you’re a passenger, take advantage of the occasion to enjoy a ride on the cable car
