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 view of the river”
Reviewed November 26, 2012

This is a beautiful spot to look out over the river and people watch in front of the Chateau.

In the fall there are lovely colours on the trees.

Don't miss the view at night. It is lovely.

“Great Views”
Reviewed November 19, 2012

This is a nice walk and great view of the city. It is close to the Frontenac and is probably the first thing that you find!

“Must see”
Reviewed November 10, 2012

Even on a cold, wet, blustery, Autumn day, the Terrasse Dufferin was one of our favorite attractions in Quebec City. We recommend that you take the time to stroll the entire length of Terrasse, stopping frequently to take in the changing view - of both the river below and the remarkable, jutting additions which make up the Chateau Frontenac.
