Unfortunately we arrived in April when the snow sports season (skiing and snowshoeing) had finished, despite the 3foot deep piles of snow everywhere! Good for a stroll, I can imagine that in Spring, Summer and Autumn this would be a delightful place for strolling and...More

This battlefield park is a large expansive area between Grande Allee Est and the River. We entered it at two points - from the Citadelle and from the Area behind the Art Museum. It commemorates the battles during the Seven Years War when England and...More

This area was great for our picnic overlooking the river! Watching the boat traffic and enjoying the sun was quite relaxing. We took blankets from our rental. There appeared to be a great number of people walking, running, and biking and picnicking. Obviously, this would...More

If you have time, it is well worth your while to stroll around the Plains of Abraham. It is beautifully maintained.

We loved walking around the Plains, looking at what's on offer and catching up on our local history at the same time. What a view, what a history but what a presence it has.

We walked for an hour in the park to get the views of the river and experience some history. On a cold wintery March day the park was quite deserted and the trails were a little rough and icy.

We knew this was a very historic place. A battle was fought here that decided the fate of empires. However, there wasn't much to see or do in that connection. Instead, we enjoyed quite a pleasant walk, on a rather blustery day. At times, the...More

The plains of Abraham are big and fun. You can walk under the sun for a good amount of time and it is also home of the FEQ in July.

Had a great after dinner walk on the Plaines, however lots of construction going on. Will look amazing once it's completed.

The hotel is located in the heart of the upper town. Convenient and easy walking distance from all the sites above and easy to access via "funiculaire" to the lower town.
