Canyon Sainte-Anne

Only 30 minutes from Québec City lies a beautiful canyon that was carved out of 1.2 billion-year-old bedrock by a 74-m (242.7') waterfall during the last major Ice Age. Today, this site is a popular attraction.

Admire the stunning view as you cross the three suspended bridges, one of which hangs 60 m (197') above the gorge! To get the adrenaline flowing, take the via ferrata route up the rocky face of the canyon. This activity is offered year-round.

The trails criss-crossing the site are adapted to families and those with reduced mobility. If you want to try something a little different, say crossing over the gorge at 50 km/h (31 miles/h), we propose Air Canyon, the only two-seater zipline in the country!

Onsite, you will find a variety of play structures for children, picnic areas and a restaurant.
