Quebec-Montmorency-Tadoussac

Day 6: Quebec-Montmorency-Tadoussac

On the sixth day of the trip we would make two very interesting stops, the first 15 kilometers from Quebec would be the Montmorency Falls and the second and one of the most anticipated was the whale watching in Tadoussac on the San Lorenzo River about 3 hours away from Quebec.

Montmorency Falls

During the winter the water vapor solidifies forming an important mass of ice that is transformed into a popular ice climbing site.

Tickets Parc de la Chute-Montmorency

The waterfall is located at the mouth of the Montmorency River on the St. Lawrence River

It is 83 meters high and is the highest in the province of Quebec, being 30 meters higher than the Niagara Falls.

They can be seen from different points thanks to the number of viewpoints available.

You have to go up some stairs and go admiring the beautiful views that leaves us, the strong point comes on the bridge that crosses from one side to another and from which you can see the spectacular fall of 83 meters.

Whales in Tadoussac

To make this excursion it is very important to be warm because the cold at any time of the year is very high.

No matter the price you have to pay to see this show, it's something you will not forget in life. The best season to go whale watching is from May to October.

If seeing whales seems like something amazing, seeing them in a river seems impossible.

This is what happens in the San Lorenzo River, thanks to its depth and the number of crustacean banks it houses.

It is one of the few places in the world where you can see such a variety of whales, up to 13 different tips, including the largest of all, the blue whale.
