2. Montmorency Falls – Quebec City, Quebec
We love Montmorency Falls because it surprises people. It is so easy to get to at just a 20-minute drive from Quebec City, and is actually higher than Niagara at 84m. A suspension bridge over the crest of the falls gives you a bird’s eye view of the torrent and the thundering St. Lawrence River.
3. Athabasca Falls – Jasper National Park, Alberta
This is one of our favourite stops along the Icefields Parkway. The falls themselves are stunning, but even better are their surroundings. The Athabasca River cuts through the limestone, creating an impressive gorge with swirling whirlpools and eddies to feast your eyes on while you ascend to the falls.
