Located in Lévis, at just a couple of minutes from Quebec City, the Chutes-de-la-Chaudière are a spectacular sight!

Go for a ride on a bicycle or by foot in the developed trails and cross the 113 metre long suspension footbridge standing 23 metres over the river. Trails and lookout points enhance this exceptional site.
