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.

Seeing this in person was amazing! Photos really do not do it justice! It is a beautiful building! The gelato place attached to the hotel is amazing as well! I can't wait to return!

This is a beautiful area with a lovely view of the St. Lawrence. It is beautiful in the day but is at it's most extraordinary at night. The view of Chateau Frontenac is truly enchanting!!

We were lucky - summer just arrived - blue skies and of course a lot of tourists (same as we) and sportsmen and women. However marvelous lookout that should be combined with "Promenade des Gouverneurs".
