The Montmorency River

By Dmitry Petrounin Dmitry Petrounin Section editor Profile

Discover The Montmorency River

To the north of the city of Quebec, on the Beaupré coast, the Montmorency River runs gently in the direction of the Saint Lawrence, and then a difference in altitude creates some 260 ft of falls - one and a half times higher than the Niagara Falls - providing an incredible natural spectacle.

Once the first layer of snow is here to stay, the choice of winter sports is endless: sledging, cross-country skiing (9 trails), snowboarding, and various others.

If you haven't already done so, you absolutely must visit the Montmorency Falls Park on your next trip to Quebec. These falls are, in fact, even higher than Niagara Falls!
