Montmorency Falls and Île D’orléans

Flight Path

Montmorency Falls are located seven miles northeast of Québec City. Visible from AutoRoute 440, visitors get a sneak peak of the grand waterfall before getting to the visitors station.

This impressive waterfall is 272 feet tall, 98 feet taller than Niagara Falls, but much narrower than Niagara Falls. There are several ways to view this magnificent waterfall (cable car, trails, a suspension bridge, and viewing platforms).

With impressive views of the surrounding Québec countryside, and an amazingly beautiful feat of nature, Montmorency Falls are a must see while in Québec!

Isolated from the mainland until 1935, Île d’Orléans is a quaint island in the middle of the St. Lawrence River.

Île d’Orléans:

With beautiful coastal views visitors can drive the main loop around the island. Route 368, also known as chemin Royal, circles the 21-mile long and 5-mile wide island.

Flight Path

With only six tiny villages on the island, and fertile fields to grow produce (we saw numerous grapevines, apple orchards, onion harvesting, and strawberry fields), and small farms with livestock, this island mainly promotes agritourism.

Flight Path

Montmorency Falls and Île d’Orléans are two great destinations outside of Québec City. Being only fifteen minutes from Québec City, it is the perfect day trip combination!

Both Montmorency Falls and Île d’Orléans feel like a world away from Québec City and showcase the beauty of the Québec region.
