Stairway to Heaven: Escalier du Cap-Blanc

Large arrow left

If you're looking to do a bit of training while you're in Quebec City, the Escalier du Cap-Blanc is a great place to do it (and you won't be alone). The staircase—made up of some 398 steps—ascends from the banks of the St. Lawrence to the Plains of Abraham. (Don't worry, there are lookouts built in at regular intervals if you need a breather, or if you just want to take a look at the view across to Desjardins.)
