The Gaspé Peninsula, Canada

The Gaspé Peninsula stretches northeast of Québec into the Gulf of St. Lawrence and is made up of some of the province’s wildest and most attractive scenery.

Percé Rock

Popularly known as the Gaspésie, it is geologically the northernmost tip of the grand Appalachian Mountains, which come to a dramatic end at the Rocher Percé, otherwise known as Percé Rock.

Dense pine forests cover a varied terrain that reaches up to the 1,300 metre peaks of the Chic-Chocs mountains: excellent for walking.

Bonaventure Island

On the eastern tip of the peninsula Bonaventure Island is home to North America’s largest gannet colony and the southern coast is dotted with 18th century fishing villages, beautiful gardens and fruit farms.

A good road circles the peninsula and allows easy access to all the highlights.
