Parc de la Chute-Montmorency: you’ll be dazzled!


Get your fill of thrills thanks to the Parc de la Chute-Montmorency zipline. Armed with courage, you'll cross the Montmorency Falls cove, covering over 300 metres with your face to the wind and your feet dangling in the void! The quintessential breathtaking view awaits you!

Via ferrata

Three via ferrata circuits have been built in the Boischatel fault, near the falls. A hiking trail on rock wall, accessible to all, that promises a dazzling view of the cove and Île d’Orléans.

Panoramic Circuit

Walk along the cliff to reach the suspension bridge and feel the thunder of the waterfall rumbling under your feet. Be sure to take the panoramic staircase where the drizzle from the waterfall can reach you. To round off your visit in style, take a picnic break or treat yourself to a meal at the terrace restaurant.

And how about a little fishing?

Try your luck angling for a day at the Laurentides or Portneuf wildlife reserve. What’s on tap? Lakes just brimming with fish that are dying to bite! Think you can snag yourself a fine trophy?

If you’re more of a camping enthusiast, these two wildlife reserves are ideal sites to pull up your recreational vehicle or to pitch your tent. There’s nothing better than camping in places that have been kept unspoiled!

Parc national de la Jacques-Cartier

Do you know this little corner of paradise only 30 minutes from Québec City? Recognized as one of the most beautiful valleys in Québec, Vallée de la Jacques‑Cartier is sure to please boating enthusiasts as well as lovers of forest walks. For a memorable river experience, why not try a mini-raft? As a group or with the family, you can explore the most turbulent part of the river. A made-to-measure thrill for adrenaline junkies! Take our word for it, you’re sure to be impressed by this 100% nature destination!
