The Montmorency falls are an impressive sight to see. I went in winter and so half of it was frozen was made it even more of a wonder. Québec’s founder, Samuel de Champlain, named the falls after Henri II, duc de Montmorency, who served as the viceroy of New France in the 1620s. At 275ft high and 150ft across, the falls are the tallest in the province – taller even than Niagara by nearly 100ft! There are several different ways to enjoy views of the waterfall: from down at the base of the waterfall, from several staircases beside the waterfall, and from a suspension bridge over the crest of the falls. You can take a cable car down or drive to the bottom from the top in winter and in summer you can take the stairs. If your feeling adventurous you can climb the side of the falls or get up close and personal at the bottom. It is dangerous to cross the frozen water and you are advised that it is at your own risk but there are many people doing it and you get a great view!
