Terrasse Dufferin

A popular scenic promenade in Québec City where visitors can enjoy stunning views of the St. Lawrence River and iconic landmarks.

Tips from the community

There’s no better way to enjoy Québec City’s phenomenal hillside location than with a stroll along the iconic Dufferin Terrace. Stretching from the foot of the Citadelle, the 671-meter long boardwalk is filled with street performers, rollerbladers, and hand-holding couples at any given time. On one side, you have the iconic Château Frontenac, the centuries-old hotel that seems as if it was plucked straight from a storybook. On the other, you have spellbinding views of Old Québec and the St. Lawrence River below. Oozing with charm and character, Dufferin Terrace is one of the country’s most romantic strolls.
