The Québec maritime Blog
The maritime regions of Québec are home to beautiful natural spaces. While exploring them, you’ll soon realize that much of our territory remains unspoiled. For a taste of what awaits you in our regions, here’s our top three of your best photos taken in national parks or natural sites.
Parc national du Bic
This national park in Bas-Saint-Laurent showcases magnificent landscapes of capes, bays, coves, islands and mountains, which you can admire during a hike. Bordering the St. Lawrence Estuary, the park is also a prime destination for sea kayaking enthusiasts. Keep your eyes peeled and you may spot seals and common eiders!
Parc national de l’Île-Bonaventure-et-du-Rocher-Percé
One of the top natural attractions in Gaspésie, Parc national de l’Île-Bonaventure-et-du-Rocher-Percé is a popular tourist destination, which is not surprising since it’s home to the most accessible northern gannet colony in the world! This national park is also the best place to admire Percé Rock from several different angles and to learn all about life on Bonaventure Island and local fishing history.
Parc Nature de Pointe-aux-Outardes
A natural playground awaits you in Parc Nature de Pointe-aux-Outardes, in Côte-Nord! Protecting nine different ecosystems, the nature park will delight visitors of all ages. Wander through the boreal forest to the sand flats, then from the salt marsh to the beach, in only a few minutes! You’ll be fascinated by the rest areas and the Bird Garden, which have been creatively constructed, mostly with recycled materials.
