Just 35 minutes from Old Quebec, in the heart of the mountains and Quebec forest, experience a unique hike along a canyon over a billion years old, carved into the Canadian Shield.

Whether with family, alone, or with friends, embark on an unforgettable adventure on marked trails along the rocky walls of the canyon. Explore 2.2 kilometers of wonder, from the crest to the bottom of the gorge, cross the Sainte-Anne-du-Nord River, and admire a 74-meter waterfall, taller than Niagara Falls. Cross three suspension bridges, one of which is 60 meters high, the highest in Quebec. Enjoy the adrenaline and natural beauty for a memorable experience.


Just minutes east of Québec City, you can explore many of the most exceptional heritage and natural attractions! Look back at history on La Route de la Nouvelle-France [New France Route] ; discover cultural, heritage and agritourists attractions and practice many outdoor activities between river and mountain.

How to get there

Located 30 minutes from Québec City and close to several tourist attractions, the Canyon is located on Route 138 going east towards Charlevoix; 6 km after the Sainte-Anne-de-Beaupré Shrine. From Quebec, (Highway 40 or 440), follow the directions to Sainte-Anne-de-Beaupré. In Sainte-Anne, stay on Route 138 east and head for Baie-Saint-Paul.

How to get there



The Canyon’s landscaped trails allow all of your family to enjoy a walk in nature. Kept on a leash, your dog companion can easily accompany you on your visit anywhere on the trails.

The safe and easy-to-access trails allow young families and their children to stroll in peace,  without a stroller, on the north and south rims of the Canyon.

Visitors with reduced mobility and families with a stroll prefer to remain on the north side of the Canyon.


Très très belle visite loin du monde des chutes Montmorency.
Un beau parcours avec 3 passerelles et plein de vues sur les chutes.
Vraiment très agréable
L’option aircanyon est un petit plaisir en plus même si ça fait 11$ pour 1 mn c’est quand même très cool et très haut pour la vue.
