The Best Snow Tubing and Snow Sliding
In the Québec City area, we've been snow sliding for a long time! Did you know that, in the middle of the 19th century, people used to toboggan on the hills on the Plains of Abraham? Since then, sliding has become one of the region's most popular winter activities. Companies that specialize in this activity offer a variety of services and ways to go sliding so you can get the most out of this family outing.
Toboggan Slide on the Dufferin Terrace (Au 1884)
More than one hundred years old, this sliding area is just steps from Château Frontenac on the Dufferin Terrace. Get an adrenalin rush as you dash down one of three toboggan lanes at speeds of up to 70 kilometres an hour.
From mid-December to mid-March, depending on the weather conditions.
