Road Trip Ideas
You can obviously drive around the peninsula along the legendary Gaspésie Tour, but there are also many other ways to explore this region: on motorcycle, from lighthouse to lighthouse, in search of birds, from one national park to another, etc. For a different experience, board a ferry and head over to the north shore of the St. Lawrence.
Climb mountain peaks in Gaspésie National Park; encounter fossils that are over 380 million years old in Miguasha National Park; fall under the spell of Île-Bonaventure-et-Rocher-Percé National Park and its northern gannet colony; or explore the tip of the peninsula by visiting immense Forillon National Park.
