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.

Great place to go for a walk and enjoy the nice weather. Always active, in spring, summer, fall or even winter. It offers great views of the Fleuve St-Laurent, Chateau Frontenac. Must do for anyone in Quebec City!

A must go and see summer or winter. Very nice view overlooking the St. Lawrence River, the Fairmont Château and the Lévis across the river. Don't forget to try slide during winter time, so much fun.

After being in Quebec city for 5 days, we got used to the icy sidewalks. Considering there's so much ice in Quebec, I was surprised hardly any sanding was done, but that was only in the beginning. Since we went to Terrasse Dufferin on the last day of being in Quebec, it wasn't much of a surprise. However it was still annoying to walk on.

The walk was rather beautiful and you could easily go back and forth from the Plains of Abraham and the Chateau Frontenac. There was also a wonderful view of the breaking ice and the ferry going to and from Levis. Closer to the Frontenac, there was a tourist tobogganing place where people came down this hill with an amazing speed. It was a thrill ride. We didn't try it because there was a fee but we could tell others had a great time.

Watched a passing ship dock from up here, walked along the edge and admired the scenic view. Only downside was it was slightly crowded but what can you do.
