  • Do not miss this attraction. You'll do a lot of walking (up and down) plus traverse a couple of swinging bridges, but the sights! Fantastic and worth all the huffing and puffing. A well maintained att...  read more »
  • Situated in a beautiful region, the Park has a great structure, which helps us to cover the entire area of the Canyon. However, good physical fitness is required, as there is a flight of stairs well great. We visited the Park in the summer and autumn. Each season of the year is a different landscape. Particularly, I liked most of the fall, with all its colors! The Park has ample parking and picnic area.

  • Very good trip. Better go early because about 11'30 it is filled with tourists and is no longer the same. Cross suspension bridges with this waterfall is impressive. If going early are virtually only. It is only half an hour from Quebec. Worth it!

  • 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!
  • Breathtaking, gorgeous. One of the best places I have visited in Canada. Watch and enjoy the natural beauty of waterfalls. I'll go again.
  • Very family friendly but small. Pretty, though! You can get the views and an easy, 20 minute walk through.
  • One of the single most beautiful places I've seen in my trip to Canada. Amazing views, opportunity to see the falls from lots of different angles and even get (very) wet by them. A must for everyone nearby.
  • It is one of the beautiful , wonderful waterfall. Specially, zipline nearby waterfall is thrilling. I enjoyed a lot with friends over their. Beautiful Quebec City .
