We walked across the street from the chocolate shop and took advantage of the tide being out by walking along the rocky seashore. There is a walking tour at the street level called Promenade Horatio-Walker, with interpretative panels, but we didn’t feel like walking the...More

We strolled along the windswept walk. The scenery over the St Lawrence River is majestic. The houses along the walk are stunning. And the chocolaterie at the beginning is delicious!

A little walk on the river shore with your ice cream cone (go the ice cream parlor nearby before!) and enjoy!

Great scenery and view of the city! Ice cream near by by but they are trifling. Barbaric behaviors near the ice cream!!! Just enjoy the scene.

This promenade named after the great Canadian painter, Horatio Walker, is a leisurely walk through time. His home and studio are there. The views out onto the St. LAwrence are breath-taking. Now, I know why he chose this place to live and paint.

So nice to sit by the water, learn about Horatio Walker's art and enjoy a chocolate. My favorite was the Orleans Dark Chocolate with Raspberry filling. Gorgeous!

Great perspective on the river and how Quebec City was such an important part of history. Lovely little stroll on a warm day. Limited parking so probably tough to access on a busy summer day.

The Promenade Horatio Walker offers a peaceful stroll and different views of Quebec, along with a nice fresh breeze from the St. Lawrence River. Personally, as we did, I would recommend grabbing ice cream and/or chocolates at the Chocolaterie d'Ile d'Orleans, and taking a walk...More

It was a joy to walk along the shore and see the city and the distant landscape. This peaceful little stop on a beautiful island can give you a great perspective. Ice cream is not required.
