Canyon Sainte-Anne
Canyon Sainte-Anne
Canyon Sainte-Anne, located in the Québec City region, is a natural site of great beauty. This canyon in the Côte-de-Beaupré regional county municipality was sculpted into the rock during the ice age by an impressive 74 m (242 ft.) water. Seize the opportunity to get a bird’s eye view of the gorge, the Giant’s Pothole and the waterfall rumbling and whirling powerfully at the heart of Canyon Sainte-Anne.

NEW: The Air Canyon – an adventure made to be shared!

Blazing the trail for this kind of installation in Canada in a spectacular setting of wilderness, Canyon Sainte-Anne invites you to get strapped into the Air Canyon cart and fly above the striking landscape of steep cliffs and white water!

Sit back, hold your breath… and fly away! The open cart is composed of two side-by-side seats and suspended almost 300 feet above the gorge. Peak speeds can reach 50 km/h (31mph)! Race through the forest and before you know it you’ll be over the chasm, astounded, your feet dangling in the air. Share this moment of pure joy and thrills with family and friends!

This activity is easy, safe and accessible.

Your visit doesn’t stop there!

Make sure you set some time aside to visit the canyon. In addition to the new Air Canyon ride, there are trails along the river and three via ferrata circuits. There are also three suspended bridges, one of which hangs 60 m (196 ft.) over the gorge!

Thanks to a mobile app, kids are treated to a special activity that will have them searching for the colours of the rainbow as they learn the story of the Petraminis and the colour-stealing Giant. The site provides a shuttle to visitors with reduced mobility so that they can fully enjoy its natural beauty.

FUN FACT:

The Air Canyon and via ferrata are now included in the collection of Canadian Signature Experiences by Destination Canada, a sign of recognition of the quality and exclusivity of innovative products.
