  • A gorgeous site to visit on your stay in Quebec City. A member of our group is handicapped and was able to use a scooter along the paths. The views are beautiful.

  • Beautiful spot that is worth a visit. A walk around the falls takes approximately 1 hour and includes many stairs but is worth it for some great views. There are informative signs throughout. The zip line is a lot of fun. Some accessible options are also available for seeing the site if you have mobility issues.
  • WOW. This place is gorgeous. My partner and I had such a fun time exploring it. Took us about 2 hours to go through the whole thing. They have a trail for kids too, which has interactive stories as well as some games. The falls was phenomenal. We ended up going on the air canyon thing, it was nerve racking but so worth it. The view you get is worth every penny. We did buy our tickets in advance but not sure the benefits as we still waited in line to get registered and what not. Could have easily just bought them there! The staff was also really friendly :)
  • This is a fantastic place for a walk and to explore the natural beauty of the canyon. It's not a difficult walk, but there are a decent number of stairs. There are also several suspension bridges over the water, so just be aware if that's something that makes you nervous. None are rickety or sway too much, and they all feel very stable. The views are amazing and there are many lookouts that are great spots for photos, or just to admire the natural scenery. There are also plenty of signs to provide information on the area for those who are interested. At the entrance there is a restaurant and gift shop, as well as bathrooms. There aren't bathrooms anywhere else in the park so use them at the start before you head out. There are also picnic tables available under the trees if you'd like to bring your own lunch/snacks. You can get to the bottom of the canyon and back in an hour or so, but if you like a slower pace to take in the sights and read the signs, plan for this to be a morning or afternoon activity. Definitely worth the visit. If you like the outdoors, you won't be disappointed.
  • Gorgeous views from the walk. The story at each view point kept my kids entertained. My 3 year old actually walked the whole way round including the 187 steps. There is a ride that shoots you across the canyon that looks fun. My kids were too small and husband scared of heights. Dogs are allowed. Some cool suspension bridges too. Clean well maintained public toilets and a play structure for kids. Shop and a Cafe but we didn't go into Cafe.
  • Stunning views and away enough from the core, you feel like you got away. I love that you can take your time and each of the 3 bridges gives you a different perspective. Definitely worth the walk down to the bottom if you’re comfortable. It’s not an overly intimidating stair climb, but would be wise to assess during the descent how confident you are coming back up. The air canyon ride is kind of neat. There’s only one car though so any line take a few minutes per pair of passengers. It would have been nice to stay at the top a little longer to appreciate the view.
