Tip No. 1
The panoramic circuit

Your active youngsters will complete the circuit without difficulty, but if you have a little one in a stroller, we recommend that you take Cottage trail to get to the suspension bridge after you’ve made the climb by cable car. The trail is located to the left of Manoir Montmorency. There are no stairs along this compact rock dust trail, which crosses magnificent gardens, vast open spaces, and a playground. It’s a perfect place to get some exercise, and for picnicking as well.

Tip No. 2
Picnicking

Parc de la Chute-Montmorency has a number of great spots for picnicking. Our favourite is the orchard: it offers a breathtaking view of the river, wide-open spaces, tall trees, and a playground with swings and toboggans for the kids. Now there you can take your time and enjoy the moment!

At your own pace and with a professional guide by your side, you can experience the via ferrata with your kids in a perfectly safe environment. There’s a special route designed for children aged eight and over (minimum height 1.3 m or 4'3'').

Visitors aged 12 and over can have a go at the zipline. You can even zip across a distance of 300 metres in tandem with your kid. With your face to the wind and feet dangling in the air, your fill of thrills is guaranteed!

Tip No. 5
To satisfy any appetite, large or small

During the summer season, you might be tempted by the Restaurant-terrasse du Manoir, which offers a varied lunch menu for the entire family and a splendid view of Montmorency Falls and Île d'Orléans.

If you prefer to grab a quick bite, there’s a sandwich bar at the cable car station. In summer, you’ll also find a number of food stands throughout the site, as well as a dairy bar along the promenade.

Tip No. 6
For your special occasions

The Sunday brunch is a regional delight that’s simply a must. It’s not uncommon to see groups of grandparents, parents, and children brunching together. Whether it’s for a small evening gathering or a big family reunion, the Manoir Montmorency reception halls can receive and serve a feast to groups of 20 to 200 people.
