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.

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.
