The Québec City area is full of beautiful waterfalls that amaze anyone who loves nature, taking pictures, seeking adventure, and admiring landscapes. Each waterfall has its own unique and stunning features waiting to be explored when renting a chalet near Quebec!

Here are the best waterfalls to see in Québec City:

1. Canyon Sainte-Anne Falls 

The Sainte‑Anne‑du‑Nord River cascades majestically from a towering height of over 243 feet, creating a stunning waterfall in its wake. A pathway winds its way alongside the canyon, with three bridges suspended over the expanse, allowing visitors to peek down into the ancient abyss from above. These rockfaces have been around for an astonishing 1.2 billion years and are accessible for those with reduced mobility.

3. Montmorency Falls

Situated just outside Québec City, Montmorency Falls is an awe-inspiring sight. It’s a whopping 83 metres (272 ft.) tall, dwarfing Niagara Falls in size at 30 metres (nearly 100 ft.) taller. Montmorency Falls Park promises a great day out for the family with many activities and attractions.

You can go to the waterfalls, ride the cable car to the top for a great view and, for a challenge, take the Ferrata cableway along the rock face with a professional guide. In the winter, the mist from the falls creates an ice cone at the bottom known as a sugar loaf or pain de sucre.

It is an interesting area full of geological features such as huge glacial rocks, deep potholes, and fossils that have been around longer than dinosaurs. There is a path that stretches for 1.5km along the Saint-Charles River. Explore the traditions of the Huron-Wendat people by visiting Wendake.
