Did you know that just a little over three hours from Montreal lives an impressive waterfall that's higher than Niagara Falls? Well, it's true. For those of you looking to go chasing waterfalls, surrounded by a ton of gorgeous foliage, you're going to want to check out Canyon Sainte-Anne.
It's said to be "an unforgettable experience for the young and the not so young."
Canyon Sainte-Anne simply oozes natural beauty. The steep-sided gorge, formed by the Sainte-Anne-du-Nord River is located east of Beaupré, Quebec.
The river drops over a spectacular, 74-meter waterfall within the canyon to create some of the most epic views your eyes have ever encountered.
As you hike through the majestic forest, you'll have the opportunity to educate yourself on the park's history, landscape, wildlife, and vegetation.
Visitors of the canyon will not only be able to bask in the views, but they can also swing by one of the three suspension bridges that hang high above the abyss.
Throughout the land, there are many spots where you'll be able to observe the beauty surrounding you, including hidden gems all over.
Not only can you enjoy this day of admiring nature, but you can do so with your dog by your side, as long as they are on a leash, making it a perfect getaway.
For those looking to take this experience to new heights, you can take part in the air canyon experience.
On it, you'll glide at 50 km/hour above the falls.
If you're seeking an adventure before the cold takes over the province, you may just want to check out this spot as it has a lot to offer, especially when it comes to kickass views.
When: Before it gets too cold.
