Forillon National Park, Gaspe

Explore the wonders of Forillon National Park, Quebec’s first national park. Within the park you can find forests, sand dunes, cliffs, salt marshes, and the sea coast. Take a quiet stroll along one of the beaches, or snorkel and discover a colorful underwater world. Take time to watch the seals play along the shore or the sea birds. The park is also home to other wildlife, including foxes, bears, moose, owls, and falcons. Visit Fort Peninsule, a World War II fortification used to protect Gaspe Bay. An underground tunnel is accessible to view a cannon, still in place today.

  • Go to the "end of the world", see stunning landscapes, learn a little history, walk on long paths. I e stayed there only an afternoon, but I would stay there again.

  • An absolute must-visit park if you are in the Gaspé region. Gorgeous park in and of itself, its facilities are top-notch with various activities for all levels. My favorite hike is 'Les Graves' an 8km hike along the coast with breathtaking ocean scenery at every turn.
  • Beautiful views including the tower! Has a nice waterfalls too with red chair! The facilities are a little worn down though
  • The Gaspé is beautiful. The park has many trails to follow and explore the region. Huge park.
  • Spent the day hiking and driving around the park. Well worth the time and the price (free on Canada's 150 )
  • Perfect place to escape a crowded city. Many cool lighthouses. But it is far from any bigger city. So better plan for more than a weekend.
