  • I didn’t expect this attraction to be so attractive, thanks to its beautiful waterfalls. Wow! It’s truly amazing. The water of Sainte-Anne-du-Nord River has chiseled the rocks into a steeped-sided gor...  more »
  • The beautiful picturesque place not far from Quebec City. Rocks, waterfalls and Belvederes. You can navigate through the turbulent River with waterfalls on three bridges, located at different heights. With each bridge opened majestic views of the river and Canyon walls. Walk along the paths along the coast, go from one side of the Canyon to the other coniferous trees. The sound of water, Rainbow, which necessarily have a sunny day. Spruces, pines, Cedars, maples. At the entrance to the territory of the reserve (a Canyon is a natural reserve), there is a café and tables with benches on the grass under the trees.

  • Beautiful well landscaped park. There are several cascade to see up close. The trails are paved, so no problem for the market. Predict an hour. Stop between Québec and Tadoussac.

  • 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.
  • See another side of Quebec! This place is great for those who love adventure. A great family destination!
  • 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.
  • Breathtaking, gorgeous. One of the best places I have visited in Canada. Watch and enjoy the natural beauty of waterfalls. I'll go again.
