    Mother nature at her finest. Make sure you have good walking shoes and take a picnic lunch and a camera. Oh yes the parking is free.  more »

    The Canyon of Sainte-Anne beautiful, a nice route in forests and a breathtaking view of the falls called the 7 falls! Parking at disposal and picnic areas on the course!

    This site is absolutely to see. It is simply superb. The circuit, which is 1 km away, is superbly laid out and offers a unique spectacle of the falls. It should be noted the work of the people who built this site with the construction of the two bridges for example. A site not to be missed.

    Beautiful place to visit. Waterfall is amazing. Total walking distance is not that long. Be prepared to get wet if windy. To get to Bottom level bridge, lots of steps.

    Beautiful place. The river was flowing nicely and the waterfalls were stunning. The walk along the footpaths next to the river was peaceful - just nature's birdsong and river's music was a delight to the ears. Due to being with a tour bus group, I couldn't go on the zipline or via ferrata because of time constraints. Hopefully I will be back!

    Excellent views for everyone! A special shout out and thank you to Oliver and Guillaume for helping my family (me) do project vertical and the zip line.

    So we happened to go on a weekend where there was some sort of high line (skyline) festival/day which plays in to my 3-star review. While the propel partaking in the Sky lining festival was cool to look at, it obscured the falls and made pics impossible to take without a line in view 😕 Also, only about half of the park is stroller-friendly, and it requires that you double back if you want to avoid all stairs. Never being ones to shortchanged a paid excursion, we opted to go to the boom of the falls whilst carrying a stroller the whole way, and a toddler part way. In hindsight we remembered we could have probably just parked the stroller at the top of the stairs, but in the moment we had forgotten this was an option. So yeah, that sucked. Also, once down in the park we only spotted one port-a-potty, which proved inconvenient for our toddler's small bladder! The canyon also advertises a zip line - it's between $20-40 (this is in addition to park admission) & it's super short!!! I actually felt bad watching people go across (at one point we made a pit stop at the finish side of the zip line so we saw people come across) & wondered if they thought is was worth it themselves... It was so short! Would I visit again if in the area? No, one visit was enough. Would I recommend others to go? If you don't have kiddos with you, sure - it was a beautiful day and I felt active and like I got a workout in after over 200 stairs! If you have kiddos, it just depends. Ours was young enough to be free, but it wasn't really a kid-friendly place, especially not compared to some others spots we visited. Final tip if you go: get there early!!! We did and were so glad (especially with a kid in tow!)! It makes crossing the bridge or walking the stairs less excruciating when you can take your time without the crowds. By the time we left it was too crowded and we wouldn't have enjoyed it nearly as much!

    Where: Canyon Sainte-Anne What: A Canyon, waterfall near Quebec city. How was it: It was a nice place to visit. Great to go when in the QC area. It's not that much further and it makes for an enjoyable visit. There is a long trail and you can even do a zip-line across the canyon if you aren't afraid of heights ! Grade: Eli = 5, Serge = 4+ Recommend : Yeah, when in Quebec City, it's worth a visit.
