Montmorency FallsDay 5

Drive up the Beaupré Coast along the shores of the St. Lawrence River. Over 400 years ago, it played a major role in the founding of Québec City, the cradle of civilization in North America. Peer over the top of Montmorency Falls and feel the immense power of the water before taking a cable-car to the base. After a simplistic yet truly impressive lunch in a 17th century farmhouse continue to Ste.-Anne-de-Beaupré Cathedral. Make note of the ornate copper doors. Later you’ll visit the artist’s studio that created them! Taste an array of apple products including apple ice wine at a local ciderie before returning to the city for a relaxing evening.
