We enjoyed a delightful stroll in the late afternoon, away from the mobs of people in old town. There are a few sets of stairs going up and down (310 per the signage), so not recommended for strollers or wheelchairs. Great opportunity for clear photos up and down the river.

So much fun to stroll a boardwalk along the river at the base of an iconic hotel. It was so much fun to be part of a boardwalk and NOT to be surrounded by fudge and t-shirt shops!

Most travelers just walk the portion that is near the Frontenac, but a great walk can be had by walking south up the stairs and all the way past the Citadel and back. Definitely worth the extra effort

Beautiful waterfront walk and view of the Frontenac, etc. Can't wait to return in winter for the sled/slide that's been there since 1884!

You can start in front of the beautiful "Chateau Frontenac" and walk along the cliffs of the river (below are the old ramparts of the city) and go up the stairs (in the winter it is a very long ice slide onto the terrasse) and make your way to the Plains of Abraham were history changed for Lower Canada.

This is a beautiful stroll, overlooking the St. Lawrence River. I heartily recommend it for the views, the people watching and the exercise!

Love the promenade, even in winter. This visit was warm, bright, sunny summer, so extra nice. The walk is easy, pretty, affording great views of the river and, in part, the roofs of the old town. Easy access from the Chateau and FREE! Walk right over to the Citadel. Take the Funicular down to the old town, (2.25 each way,... More

Excellent walking path near the Chateau de Frontenac/hotel and restaurant. It offers a nice view of the St Laurence, and some key scenic spots for tourists
