Located in St-Joachim, about a half hour east of Quebec City, this magnificent gorge carries the Saint-Anne-du-Nord River towards Saint Lawrence. Hordes of visitors come to view the river from three bridges and numerous other observation sites. Key attractions include the Giants' Kettle whirlpool, a 70-metre waterfall and Cornelius Krieghoff's 1855 painting Sainte-Anne Falls, which offers an artist's rendering of the gorge before it was modified for running logs.
