Quebec’s Gaspé Peninsula offers outdoor adventure and French maritime culture that may make you wonder why you haven’t visited sooner.
How do you reach the tip of Gaspé Peninsula?
The area is easily reached by car (it’s an 8- hour drive from Quebec City) or by flying to Gaspé Airport (YGP) from Quebec or Montreal.
Why should you visit Forillon National Park?
One of my favourite destinations on the Peninsula is Forillon National Park. To make the most of your time in the area I’ve listed the ten things I think you should you experience while visiting. You can read the list here.
Where can you stay?
There are plenty of places to stay but I’d recommend a stay in the park at one of the oTENTiks or micrOcubes.
Do you know how to watch a sunrise?
Don’t be too quick to answer. I thought I knew everything there was to know about watching the sun appear but I learned there’s an art to watching a sun rise. I share the tips I picked up in in Forillon National Park here.
I’d love to hear what you love about your experiences in Forillon National Park or the Gaspe Peninsula so please add a comment with your recommendations on what to see and do. If you’ve seen any usual wildlife I’m especially interested!
Thank you and Merci!
