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.

Dufferin Terrace itself has great views of the river. There are about 3 skylights with views of the dig site below. The site is run by the park service. Admission was $3.90. It's self guided with interactive kiosks along the way. It is under most of Dufferin Terrace. Dufferin Terrace itself is a free boardwalk.

The views of the St. Lawrence are amazing, the walkway is wide and had buskers in different areas. Many places to sit and watch the sail boats and cruise ships. Very pleasant place to be on a sunny afternoon.

The walk is very wide and well laid out with seating benches. A great way to relax and sit and watch the world go by - all for free!

I have visited the Boardwalk in both the winter and summer and found the view to be fantastic. Just to sit back and enjoy the atmosphere as you wander around

Walked along this boardwalk from the beginning to the end which begins near Chateau Frontenac and ends just past La Citadelle. The views are outstanding! It is unlike anything I've ever seen because the boardwalk is massive and lined with benches, lots of people and local musicians providing entertainment. Nice area to get a different perspective of Quebec City and not viewable any other way than to walk it. If you walk the entire thing, be aware there are several areas with steps and may be difficult for some people.
