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.

“Great Boardwalk”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2013

This is the boardwalk that starts at the Place Cartier and continues till the Plains of Abraham. The views are outstanding . Many benches are scattered throughout. If one continues to the Plains you must walk up quite a few flights of stairs..so be aware. We always begin out walk at the Plains and come back to the Terrasse to avoid walking up all the stairs.

“Windy and Wonderful!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2013

Loved Terrasse Dufferin- beautiful at any time of day- at night the city lights are so dramatic, during the daytime, the energy of street performers is present, at sunset- the glow is heavenly. Be aware this is always windy up on the Terrassee- wear your jacket and hats!!!

“Great view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2013

The view on the St. Lawrence River and across to Lévis is great. The Château Frontenac stands majestically over all. There are plenty of benches for everyone, also on sunny days, to enjoy this place.

“Lovely”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 16, 2013

Lovely area for a stroll or take a seat on a bench and take in the view. You can have a look at Chateau Fintenac up close.
On the days I was there , there was a lady singing opera which added to the atmosphere.

“Must See!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2013

This is a boardwalk on the edge of the Upper Town looking at the St. Lawrence River over into Levis. It is a must to walk along this expanse past the Chateau Frontenac down to the Plains of Abraham. Sit on a bench and enjoy the view, people watch or have a snack.
