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.

We travelled here in March and the toboggan service was still available. A LOT of fun and highly recommended! Stunning views

The Terrasse Dufferin is a nice spot to walk and take a stroll. Good views of the city from the terrasse.

After a day of rain we relished our walk along Terrasse Dufferin. Street musicians provided a lively backdrop to our stroll and people watching. With the St. Lawrence on one side and beautiful architecture on the other, it was lovely.

We were staying at the Frontenac so it was easy access to the terrace. Almost every evening, we would walk along the terrace and enjoy the openness and the views. Day or night, this is a great place to stroll.

Lovely way to spend an hour looking out over the wall down over the old town and across the water. We spent time up here during the day and in the evening, walking down to the old town and taking Funiculaire back up.
