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.

Wonderful views of Levis and the St-Lawrence. Really interesting to think of the history while strolling the wooden walkway. Parking is easy outside of the very peak tourist months of July and Aug. Note that there is always a chilly wind so bring a sweater unless it is a blistering hot day.

There are great views from here looking out across the St. Lawrence. The ice slide that is at the end of this is so much fun to go on. The climb up to the top with your tobaggon is a little tough but it is so worth the ride down. Lots of fun. and I would recommend it as a must do if visting here

This terrasse is right in front of the Chateau Frontenac and is a wonderful spot if you want to enjoy the view of the Saint Lawrence River and watch the many cruise and cargo ships that pass by. A must see in the city of Quebec.

I visited there in January and the St. Florence River was full of drift ice and very impressive. You can go down to Lower Town from there by funicular for $2.25. Actually, it's just a minute ride. So if you are fit enough, just walk down the hill.

The Terrasse Dufferin is right behind the Château Frontenac and offers a wonderful view of the St Lawrence. They had a large tobbagan hill set up as well. It was 2,25$ per person I believe and a lot of fun! We followed the Terrasse to the Promenade des Gouverneurs - a nice walk/view.
