Urban hiking with stunning views
Just navigating the Old City is an urban hike in of itself; with hundreds of stairs and steep inclines, many people choose to take on the city with hiking poles! But if you are looking for a bit more of an urban hiking experience, trek up the Governors Promenade and end at the Citadel—the ruins offer one of the most stunning views back on the showpiece Chateau Frontenac and the majesty of the Old City.
