Owner description: This elevated area offers panoramic views of Old Quebec and the St. Lawrence River. Winter adrenalin junkies line up by the thousands at Les Glissades de la Terrasse to experience the rush of zooming downhill from 270 feet high (82 meters) in a toboggan speeding up to 60 mph (90 kilometers per hour) to the bottom 500 feet (152 meters) away. Located on the Dufferin Terrace overlooking the St. Lawrence River behind Fairmont Le Château Frontenac, the ride is open from mid-December through late March.

We throughly enjoyed walking Terrasse Dufferin. It's great for people watching day or night! We espcially enjoyed grabbing a bench at night and watcing the ferries and tankers go up and down the St. Lawrence River. There are several ice cream shops right there that dip up some great stuff!

Great views of lower city and the river. Lots of interesting street performers. And a lovely walk from the funicular and Frontenac down to the Governor's Walk around the citadel wall to the Plains of Abraham. One of Old Quebec's jewels!

Very large boardwalk. Open day and night and lots of things going on. Good place to watch street performers.

Easy walk along the cliff. Hard to believe in the summer that they ride toboggans onto there in the winter. Great for photos.
It goes from the Plains of Abraham down several flights and curls around the hotel to the Place d'Arms area.

This broad walkway allows you some of the best views in Quebec City. With Chateau Frontenac as your back drop you can stroll the wooden walkway or sit at one of the many cast iron victorian style benches. We spent time here when we were done touring for the day with a cup of coffee and a treat to just wind down and people watch. Right now, there are a number of street artists performing interesting acrobatic and juggling type shows at one end.
