|Suggested activities with a view|
The Montmorency Falls (30 m/99’ higher than the Niagara Falls) and Park have even more to offer in the winter. The ice that accumulates at the base of the falls during the coldest months of the year is called sugarloaf hill and is an internationally renowned tourist attraction. Onsite activities: ice climbing, snowshoeing along marked trails and an introduction to downhill skiing for children aged 5 to 8. Two routes featuring a via ferrata and a double zip line will be available as of 2013. Thrill seekers take note! The shorter, 45-minute route is perfect for beginners, while the 2.5-hour route is for more experienced climbers. Both routes include taking a 270-m (891’) long double zip line to cross over the cove near the falls.
Nordic spa and relaxation
The new Aufguss sauna from Germany is designed to make you sweat and sweat and sweat. Water is repeatedly thrown onto hot stones to significantly increase the amount of vapour and humidity in the sauna. Essential oil is added to the water to give the steam a pleasant fragrance and stimulate the limbic system. At the end of the sauna, participants can enjoy a healthful snack of frozen fruit.
