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.

Went during Quebec Carnaval : best scenery on the River, the low town, by the Chateau Frontenac. It is the most unique place in the City by me. Since this was winter, we tried the slides which is great, 10 min wait, safe don’t worry, for all family, and fun

The Terrasse Dufferin is a great long Boardwalk with a tremedous view of the Saint Lawrence Seaway. There are places along the way for small souvieners as well as drinks and snacks. This is a great place to exercise as well as sightsee!

Terasse Dufferin is the place to be when in Quebec. It offers an excellent view of the St. Lawrence River. Currently in the winter you can grab a toboggan (sleigh) and do the toboggan run.
Fun for you and old.
