Scenic Walk with River Views

We took this walk from the Carnaval back to the Fairmont. It was worth trenching through the snow to see the beautiful views of the river & Citadel.

A must do...Stroll the promenade early in the morning and you have it all to yourself. Sit on a bench at lunchtime and watch the cruise ships dock, the funicular shuttle visitors up and down the cliff, and hundreds of people go by.

The promenade provides lovely views and is a pleasant way of walking up to the Citadelle from Old Quebec. I would highly recommend walking this route but would warn that it has many steps so may be challenging for some people, especially on hot days.

Walk the Promenade, often. Great spot on top of the cliff wall of Quebec city and it appears there are sled rides in Winter. Not to be missed as there are great views of the Frontenac Hotel and the St. Laurence Seaway.
