Experience the splendor of French Canada's Beaupre Coast as this tour takes you along the St. Lawrence Waterway to the natural wonder known as St. Anne Canyon. Carved into the 900 million year old rock of the Canadian Shield, this little known natural wonder is located along the beautiful Beaupre Coast. Three bridges and various lookout platforms with interpretive displays allow for spectacular views of the 270-foot (82 meter) falls. Returning to the entrance you'll have time to visit the gift shop, restroom facilities, or small cafe before departing. Following your visit of the canyon another visit will be made to a vineyard located on the picturesque Island of Orleans. Discover the vandal-Cliche, a typically Quebecois variety of grape adapted especially for our Nordic climate and developed here in Quebec. Learn about viniculture in Quebec, our techniques for cultivating the vines and our vinification methods. Cascading down a 272-foot (83 meter) cliff, Montmorency Falls is 1 1/2 times as high as Niagara Falls. You will enjoy the breathtaking views and see the powerful forces of natures as the water of the Montmorency River roars down the cliff to eventually meet with the St. Lawrence River. Note: Participants must be at least 18 years of age to participate in the wine tasting.

Customer Reviews for Beaupre Coast, Canyon & Winery
The waterfall at St. Anne Canyon was my favorite part of this excursion. Walkways to platforms on both sides of the falls provide plenty of great viewing opportunities. The falls are powerful, noisy and spectacular. Three bridges cross the river. The lowest bridge was closed the day we visited. The two upper bridges and their viewing platforms were fine. They have a ‘stretch golf cart’ that will transport you to the highest bridge if you have mobility issues. At the winery, we sampled a rose, port and ice wine. The vineyard tour and discussion on operating a vineyard this far north was interesting. Our guide was informative and fun. We saw several interesting and historic homes and buildings on the drive. We didn’t stop at Montmorency Falls so only viewed it as we drove by.
